Some sites do worse than the White House. The site’s poll of 2,000 travelers says that 78 percent of Americans have never visited Seattle’s Space Needle, 73 percent have avoided Yellowstone Park, 70 percent have never been to the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, 69 percent have never visited the Hollywood sign in Los Angeles and 45 percent have not visited the Las Vegas Strip.
“Look, I made some big mistakes and I know I let a lot of people down. But I’ve also learned some tough lessons. I hope I get a second chance to work for you. I will fight for you every single day.”
Vow from former congressman Anthony D. Weiner in a two-minute video announcing his candidacy for New York mayor, mistakenly posted just after midnight Wednesday at his fledgling campaign site.

“I want to personally thank Anthony Weiner for deciding to run for mayor. Anthony, thank you. Somewhere, Andrew Breitbart is smiling. Perhaps because he knows that there are, in all likelihood, still more pictures floating around somewhere. I just hope, this time, you’re smiling in them,” observes Fox News host and Breitbart.com contributor Greg Gutfeld.
