    Anthony Weiner is in the midst of another sexting scandal – admittedly one of which he warned us might be coming – and Varierty puts next to this story about some TV guy supposedly named PETER JOHNSON? Are you kidding me? This guy is for real? And if he’s real, somebody has GOT to talk him into signing him up to run for mayor of New York City. Then we would have Anthony Weiner and Peter Johnson contesting the mayor’s race, and former governor Eliot Spitzer and his former madame contesting the Comptroler race. President Obama could haul every Tea Party member and supporter off to FEMA camps between now and the election and the media wouldn’t notice.
