So often we contemplate what is wrong with our Congress.  Join me over the jump to see what Anthony did today in Washington.

I'm utterly speechless.

However, I'm afraid if I end the diary here, Representative Weiner may call my house in the morning!

Take a bow Congressman.

Take a bow.

Update: HOLY HELL!  I Shouldn't have slept in!

Update 2: Weiner and Peter King get into it on Fox News this morning.  Part 2!

Thanks to madmsf in the comments and TPM.

While we all bask in the glory of both those videos, the reaction in these comments is an absolute disgrace.  The vitriol being spewed as of late is not what drove me to this community several years ago.  And the diary purists who are angered that a video posted at 2:30 AM with very little substance are hilarious.  For all I imagined was that this would be a throwaway.  15 comments, and a ride down the diary list.  But even with the lack of information provided it wound up on the rec list.  I believe Weiner's message was far more important than an extra paragraph or two.

And no, I do not actually think Anthony Weiner should be our nominee in 2012.  Are some of you that dense?  Or has this community already torn itself in two?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
