The Last Desperate Act of Weinergate

Now, even Nancy Pelosi says he should go!

24 hours ago the headline on the Drudge Report was "PELOSI: WEINER CAN STAY * " On Saturday, Pelosi is reported to have called Weiner and tell him he had to go. On the same day, Weiner's staff announced that he would be entering a mental health treatment center of some kind and has requested a leave of absence from the House. The New York Times has the story.

What happened in the last 24 hours? My guess is that Pelosi saw a new opinion poll which indicated the scandal was picking up traction and people were blaming Democrats for protecting Weiner.

The same Times story has statements from un-named Weiner associates describing him as "distraught and fragile," "anguished" and "falling apart" to the point that he "was no longer in a position to make clear-headed decisions about his career and health."

It's quite a fall for Weiner, the vicious little dachsund who could be counted on to be abrasive, abusive, arrogant and insulting to Republicans at every available opportunity. It couldn't happen to a nicer person!
