An uncharacteristically somber and arrogance-free Anthony Weiner DEMOCRAT-NY resigned from office yesterday after embarrassing himself, his family, his country, and pretty much everyone with any sense of decency.
Admittedly, I never cared for Weiner. He was arrogant, obnoxious, and pretty much devoid of any quality that I would look for in someone to admire. And he royally worked himself over by not only hanging himself politically and personally but by serving it up on a platter for the media. What a moron!
I wonder if his ego is large enough for him to be able to rationalize his actions as somehow being someone else’s fault? Anyhoo, he is done…at least for now.
The question is not whether he will return but rather, the question is whether he might actually learn something from all of this. Could he possibly learn from the embarrassment he caused to himself, his new wife, his future generations, his family, his constituents…? One could only hope.
Actually, getting caught in all of this embarrassing stuff could work to his advantage if it produces repentance. Let’s pray that God produces repentance. Afterall, no one is beyond God’s grace as far as we can tell. We do not know whom God will redeem. Let’s pray for former Congressman Weiner.
