Weiner Hits Rock Bottom... And then does this?

http://m.washingtonpost.com/blogs/th...video/?hpid=z4



Quote:
Just when it looked as if things couldn't get any worse for Weiner, who clocked in with 7 percent support in the latest poll of the New York City mayor's race, they did just that when video surfaced Wednesday of Weiner engaging another man in a heated argument.

Exiting a bakery, a confrontational Weiner doubled back to engage a man who had criticized him.

"What's that? You wait until I walk out to say anything. That's courage," snapped Weiner.

And that was just the beginning.

The man tells Weiner his behavior has been "deviant."

"And you're perfect? You're going to judge me?" responded Weiner.

"I'm not running for office," the man replied.

"Your ignorance is being shown to the entire world," Weiner said toward the end of the exchange, captured by blogger Jacob Kornbluth.

Afterward, Weiner, who is Jewish, was asked whether he will forgive the man - who was wearing a yarmulke - since it is the eve of the Jewish new year, Rosh Hashanah.

"Of course, of course, I don't hold it against him," Weiner said.

In a gaggle with reporters Wednesday afternoon, Weiner reflected on the exchange, saying, "I don't mind people getting in my grill. That's politics. But when you start saying vile, racist things about my wife, when you start saying things using dirty words, curse words around children, and doing it, shouting them out after someone left, I just thought that was inappropriate and I think he deserved to be put in his place."
It just amazes me that Weiner throws "racist" into his claims on the "attackers behavior and expression". If anything Weiner looks so small in the video.. As if he is grasping for anything in some futile race to the bottom.

I don't understand how religious people can honestly argue against someone else who believes the exact same thing with a few variations. Especially Christian vs Jew. They pray to the same person.

Say what you will about him, but I'm surprised he had as much composure as he did. From Chase's link (updated):
The Weiner campaign this hour released a longer video which shows the man provoking Weiner, calling him a “scumbag” and adding, “And you’re married to an Arab” as Weiner tried to shrug off his remarks.

I guess this is a better headline compared to "Weiner explodes at heckler"

This. And there is no "context" around his behavior. I don't care what was said by the individual in the store. Weiner behaved like a little child and instigated the argument the moment he turned around and walked back into the store. He should have risen above and just continued walking. Instead, he CLEARLY had his pride hurt by some heckler and decided to get up in his face about it. For what it's worth, the comment made by the other individual was no "less courageous" than Weiner insulting him while walking away. Both were weak only to then have the two come face to face in a very weak argument. Weiner kept just throwing out "who are you to judge me?"... when the whole world can judge him. He's a public figure and behaved like an idiot and then lied about it.. he's (as put by the other guy int he video) "clearly" in the wrong. And the fact that he thinks he can walk around with a holier than though attitude (I've done more for this city ...) is just sad.

Yes, Christians routinely mandate that anyone they marry convert to their religion. Christians have court-backed legal protection to put in their wills if their son/daughter doesn't marry another Christian they get nothing.

Sooooooo forward thinking!

This is true of every religion. A person can put in any sort of ridiculous requirement for inheritance and as long as its not illegal, it will generally be honored (provided, of course, that the person making the will was mentally competent to do so).
