I'd love to play matchmaker between Anthony Weiner and Robert Mecklenborg. They could meet up for a Beer Summit.
Weiner: "I didn't even touch that girl."For a poetic touch, maybe they could have this blessed exchange in the brand-spanking-new fully stocked bar* in the Ohio State House.
Mecklenborg: "Neither did I, but man-o-man I sure came close. And I HATE wasting a dose of Viagra like that--If ya know what I mean."
Weiner: "You? You've got no complaints. No one called for your resignation. You weren't on CNN's front page for days on end."
Mecklenborg (with a rheumy smile): "I know. Ya shoulda picked Ohio. Ya shoulda picked the other party. Hell, a tweet? No one would ever have said a thing." (knocks back a shot of Jameson) "Christ awmighty, I got flat-out busted for driving drunk and hardly anyone noticed. As long as you wave the flag, talk pro-life and pro-gun, they don't care what you do."
Beautiful. Just beautiful.
*Yo Gov? Are we allowed to take our guns in your new bar too?
