Alec Baldwin has some thoughts on what happened to Anthony Weiner.
Here's the long and short of it:
“Like other politicians, he needs something to take the edge off,” Baldwin writes of Weiner.
“For some people, regardless of occupation, that could mean booze, drugs, gambling, food or shopping.
"For high functioning men like Weiner and other officials who have lived through such scandals, who are constantly on the go, that leaves one tried and true source of a reliable high -- the affirmation that comes when someone lets you know they want to sleep with you. Or even cyber-sleep with you.”
VS: So, maybe the moral is -- if you're a 'high-functioning man' like Weiner, and booze, drugs, gambling, food or shopping (or all of the aforementioned diversions) still leave you hunting for a 'reliable high', there's just one thing to do.
Take two aspirin and call Joy Behar in the morning.
I have no idea what this means. But I'm not taking it back.
