Burried in a pretty good roundup of the Democratic meetings on Anthony Weiner at Hotair is this question from Allahpundit:
I’m confounded by her claim that she didn’t reciprocate any of Weiner’s sexual overtures in their chats. She has no reputation to protect so there’s no obvious reason for her to lie, but she’s also been known to say — publicly — “I want to have sexual relations with Anthony Weiner” and “He can get buck wild anytime I’m around.”
Ace has the same things to say:
Before you say that’s BS — she really doesn’t have a terribly strong reason to lie. She’s a porn actress. She doesn’t have a reputation for sexual modesty to protect.
You have to remember something, the difference between a porn actress and a prostitute is marketing. Both are paid to have sex with assorted men and/or women, but a porn star does it in front of a camera to market for a global audience.
The difference between a street corner or a spot in Ladd’s Commercial is her ability to market a sexual persona to men who buy her videos or subscribe to her web site etc etc etc…Her “He can buck wild anytime I’m around” stuff was part of that, but when Weiner bought the marketing, thought she meant it, and she shut him down.
“Porn Star” is what she does when she is on the clock. It’s not her hobby or what she does on her days off. If you believe it is then you are falling for the marketing. It brings to mind this exchange from All in the Family with Sammy Davis Jr.
This exchange starts at :35
Archie : Sam where are you flying out to tonight, Las Vegas Maybe?
Sammy Davis Jr: No I have a TV special to do in Hollywood.
Archie: Orrr Gee that’s beautiful yea! Well er while your hanging around, maybe could you give us a little preview, one of the songs you’re gonna do?
Gloria: Dadddy Mr. Davis makes his living entertaining , you’re asking him to go to work
Mike: Yeah Arch how would you like to be a guest in someone’s house and they say: “C’mon Arch do some packing and lifting for us.”
Weiner started following her for the same reason any guy was following her. I’ll wager a bunch of guys tweet her. The only difference between them and Weiner is he was in a position to get a tweet back.
Update: I wrote this at 8 a.m. this morning, reports are now coming out that Weiner will resign today. Apparently he can take hits from the DCCC and the congress but when you’ve lost Ginger Lee you’ve lost your seat. 2 p.m. presser is scheduled.
Update 2: Stacy McCain reminds us of the timeline.
For the first 10 days, Weiner lied, lied, lied, and the liberals who believed Weiner were wrong, wrong, wrong, while conservatives were right, right, right. In the past 10 days, since Weiner’s June 6 press conference, liberals have tried to forget that their credulity in believing Weiner’s lies, and the idiotic conspiracy theories they proffered in his defense.
Now is the day when Jeffrey Toobin, Joan Walsh and a lot of other liberals must be called to account.
and apparently Gennette Cordoba has decided to resign as well…from Twitter.
Do you remember when we were told this was a non-story and a Breitbart invention?
