Prize Weiner

If blogging is a sport then the goal of the blogger is to bag some big game. And one local blogger -- TeamAmerica10th -- should be crowing for having reeled in a big one indeed.

Embattled NY Congressman Anthony Weiner resigned today, and the same TeamAmerica10th deserves much of the credit. Earlier this week TeamAmerica10th threw down the gauntlet, posting a no-holds-barred challenge to President Obama: Either stop your nanny-state government from dictating how we should live our lives or at least make Anthony Weiner resign. TeamAmerica10th quite frankly observed that President Obama ...
won't tell Anthony Weiner to resign, because, well, apparently that would be imposing his judgment on a fellow liberal, and gosh, we just can't make those kind of judgment calls.
Why Will President Obama Dictate Every Aspect of My Life But Not Call On Anthony Weiner to Resign???
It's not often that one witnesses an Internet blogger speak truth to power. But in this case when TeamAmerica10th spoke the truth, power listened. And quickly. An interview was hastily arranged where Obama told NBC News ...
"When you get to the point where, because of various personal distractions, you can't serve as effectively as you need to, at the time when people are worrying about jobs, and their mortgages, and paying the bills -- then you should probably step back."
Obama: 'I would resign' in Weiner's situation
The POTUS-to-English translation is ...
"You heard me, [expletive], and if you come back here by the telephones, where the press can't see it, I will kick your ass right now."
State Senator Ricky Hendon Resigns!
But, Who Knew Obama Was An Ass-Kicking Stud?
Weiner, no doubt, got the message -- loud and clear.

Now, deep in the recesses of a blogatorium of a nearby blogger is a trophy room. And among the 2nd Amendment protected firearms there is to be found is a trophy-case. There, under the glass, is Anthony Weiner's ... scalp.

The LakeCountyEye eye-shade tips to TeamAmerica10th. Skeptics who say that bloggers are a gaggle of irrelevant blowhards are deserving of some schoolin' from TeamAmerica10th.

Hi BB - appreciate the shout-out, as always, but the Obama statement was made before my blog post, so I can't rightfully claim a scalp here. In fact, Obama's milquetoast statement of “I can tell you that if it was me, I would resign," was so wimpy, that was the main impetus for the blog post. I don't think Obama ever did clearly call for Weiner's resignation, unlike some other Dems (although they dragged their heels to a large degree).

Toodles, TA

You're too modest, TA.

I don't often get accused of that, but thanks.
