Late Night: Let’s Do It! Free-Form Weiners

We’ve got some winners weiners for tonight’s topics: First off, naturally, is Weiner himself. Dude, what were you thinking? And while we’re on the subject of “What were you thinking?”, the ladies (and I use that that term loosely, as they used themselves) involved need to answer that as well. But maybe I am old fashioned and think sexy typing should be reserved for someone you know well, with whom you may have already done the deed, and with whom you share some sort of emotional and intimate commitment.

Next up: Glenn Beck. Becky has announced that he’s launching an online TV venture, GBTV, and asked for subscribers at $4.99 a month. He’s put up his own money and won’t take any partners. Why do I have visions of the late Reverend Gene Scott, a fixture on local LA TV during the 1980s who would sit with a blackboard and wind-up monkey while espousing strange conspiracy theories about the pyramids, the Bible, and whatever else struck his fancy.

Meanwhile, the Beckster also revealed that he gave family members six months to a year’s worth of food for Christmas. I wonder if the amount of food was based on how much they tolerated his blather at family reunions.

Who’s on your weiner list? Any whiners?
