The best quote in the New York Times Magazine’s snooze-inducing puff piece on perv Anthony Weiner comes near the end. This deep insight is from his brother:
But Weiner’s not “really” a douche anymore and should definitely be the next mayor of New York City! The “hard to take” Weiner is gone, says his brother.
But nearly everyone who cares about Weiner says that pugilistic political persona long ago bled into his personal life and made him “hard to take,” as his brother Jason puts it. “I wouldn’t stand for other people saying this about him, but there was definitely a douchiness about him that I just don’t really see anymore.”
Quite an endorsement.
