LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Weiner better suited to different job

Question of the Day

Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

In his latest public confession, New York City mayoral hopeful Anthony D. Weiner admitted to even more bizarre perversions involving his private parts, social media and text messaging. Mr. Weiner, the lifelong Democrat, has thus become the poster child for the Peter Principle, which holds that “people tend to rise to their level of incompetence.”

Most appalling of all, Mr. Weiner has refused to quit the race, citing his desire to share his “vision” for New York with the 8 million-plus residents of the great city.

Earth to Anthony: You have already shared way too much with New York and the world. Your vision is obviously based on perverted phallic obsessions. Why not give your wife and the world a break? Zip up your pants, destroy your camera, cancel your Twitter account and move into a position more in keeping with your intelligence and moral standards. Rather than mayor, seek to be the official village idiot for New York City, a role for which you are very well qualified and have immediate name recognition.
