The advice gives itself: The mayoral field is weak and fractured. There’s a clamor for another choice. You’ve paid for your sins and you’ve got a $4.5 million campaign stash. Go for it.
On one level, the whispering in Anthony Weiner’s ear, which probably carries the sound of his own voice, makes perfect sense. He was once the Democratic mayoral front-runner, and could be again.
On another level, the advice is insane, a reflection of Weiner’s inflated sense of self-importance and lack of remorse. To this day, there is no sign he regrets anything other than getting caught.
Soon after the texting scandal erupted a year ago, Weiner was forced out of Congress by fellow Dems. He was an embarrassment and had no friends because he was an arrogant jerk 24/7.
