U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, who has been under fire after admitting to inappropriate communications with women online, has decided to seek treatment "to focus on becoming a better husband and healthier person," his spokeswoman said Saturday.
While the New York congressman seeks treatment at an undisclosed location, he will take a "short leave of absence" from Congress, Risa Heller said in a statement.
A Democratic source, familiar with conversations among Weiner and Democratic leadership about his fate, did not know what specific type of treatment Weiner, 46, would undergo.
And the collective roll of the eyes from coast to coast begins. Anthony, are you sure you didn't fuck any women during the time you were sexting and such? Because you're acting in the same manner that Tiger Woods and Jesse James did step for step. The only difference is, they actually had sex with women and you just jerked off while on the phone. Which is why it comes off real doofus that you would seek "treatment" for what you did.
What you did wasn't the result of some sort of addiction. It was the result of arrogance, entitlement and just plain I-don't-give-a-fuckness. Mix those elements together and what you get is what we've seen not only with Woods and James but with every person whose ever been busted cheating. Arnold Schwarzenegger, David Vitter, John Edwards, Bill Clinton, Tony Parker, Eric Benet (the first to use the rehab treatment ploy) the list goes on and on.
And stop saying you made mistakes! A mistake is giving someone a Susan B. Anthony dollar coin when you meant to give them a regular quarter. You see the two look so similar that if you weren't paying attention you could easily mistake one for the other. But your intention was give the person a quarter not a dollar. See that's a mistake. You didn't make any mistakes, You didn't accidentally send a nude picture to some bitch in Chattanooga when you meant to send it to your wife. The sound of your wife's voice isn't so similar with some chick in Las Vegas that you mistakenly talked dirty to her while jerking off. Those weren't mistakes, what you did was make deliberates. You deliberately contacted those women after you were married. You deliberately took lewd pictures of yourself and sent them to those women. And you deliberately did it behind your wife's back.
Now what exactly do you expect to learn sitting in some psychiatrist's office or group therapy session? And how exactly would group therapy go?
"My name is Anthony and I'm a chronic masturbator..."
That's just ridiculous.
All the help you need is to think about the fact that your marriage, family and career are in serious jeopardy because you acted in a manner with all the maturity of a fifteen year old. How do you fix this with your wife? By rebuilding the trust you've broken to her by being a man of your word. You vowed before God and your friends and family in public to love, honor and cherish her and you better damn well start doing that now.
How you do you fix it with your supporters? By keeping your mouth shut, your head down, doing what the people in your district elected you to do. That's the only break through you can have over the next few weeks and months.
There, I just saved you a 150 dollars an hour sitting on a sofa for two weeks.
