Let’s Say Sarah Palin Got Into The Same Situation As Anthony Weiner…
Let’s imagine another prominent political figure, like Sarah Palin, in the same position as Anthony Weiner. Let’s say tomorrow, Sarah Palin starts following my account and sends me a hot half-naked picture.
#1) I would say “thank you.”
#2) If she screwed up and sent it publicly, I’m pretty sure she’d know if the picture is of her breasts or not. The fact that Weiner doesn’t know if the picture sent from HIS ACCOUNT, is of HIS CROTCH or not, is very telling. It’s telling because it means he apparently has a lot of them.
#3) If her Twitter account were hacked and used to send a half-naked pic designed to damage her rep, you can be sure she’d immediately contact the police and the FBI to try to clear her name and find out who did it.
#4) If she wasn’t hacked, I’m pretty sure Todd would find me, shoot me, and feed me to his sled dogs.
What you can be sure Sarah Palin would not do is insist that she isn’t going to the police, demand that everybody just stop talking about it, and desperately hope that the media will take her word for it when she says she was hacked despite her incredibly suspicious behavior.
Of course, Weiner, being a Democrat, was probably hoping the media would give him a free pass. After all, the much hated conservative archfiend, Andrew Breitbart, broke the story, Weiner is very liberal and a lot of old media press people don’t understand Twitter. So, Weiner undoubtedly thought he had a shot to get by with stonewalling on this story.
Unfortunately for Weiner, it’s just not going to work. The media smells the blood in the water now and there doesn’t seem to be any plausible reason for Weiner’s refusal to contact the FBI — well, except for the fact that it would mean he would be filing a false report if he claims a hacker sent that pic when he sent it himself.
