It looks as if the other Weiner thread is almost tapped out, so we’ll switch at least some of the discussion here for another day and use this space for any updates.

Here’s a rundown of some of the stories coming off the Weiner Wire this morning:

–Nancy Pelosi has called for an ethics inquiry and will turn the situation over to the House Ways and Weiners Committee, which will ultimately determine whether or not the Congressman’s illicit behavior rises to the level of doing nothing about.

–In 2007, Weiner co-sponsored the “Keeping the Internet Devoid of Sexual Predators Act.” Write your own joke.

–Weiner said “I don’t believe I used any government resources.” He doesn’t believe he did? We’ll see. For some reason I don’t believe I believe him. For example, one woman claimed “he called me from his office.” Maybe just to get advice on the health care bill with which he was becoming “one.”

–No comment on this.

Barbara Walters: “If Sarah Palin can be considered for president then Weiner can stay in congress.” Because a bus ride along the east coast is the moral and ethical equivalent of Tweeting pics of your junk to young women. It was a comment so inane it had even Joy Behar defending Palin, but I think Walters is merely lamenting the fact that Twitter wasn’t around when she was seeing Edward Brooke:


Neal Boortz thinks there might be a TV show in Weiner’s future:
