John Murtha and Yvette Clarke? Does he know about Diplomagate?
Check out the flyer circulating around Park Slope. Tell me what's missing?
Wouldn't it have been gauche to invite the ... ahem ... actual congressman for the district in which this event is taking place? Yes, you see, Anthony Weiner is a Congressman but not for CD-11. Murtha is a Congressman, too - from Pennsylvania. That makes Ms. Clarke the wannabe.
How much you want to bet this was orchestrated to give Ms. Diplomagate the patina of anti-war hipness? Which is why maybe, just maybe Major Owens, the incumbent Congressman for the district does not appear in the line-up. Because, you know, it would then involve his candidate son as well.
Problem is, this is against Congressional protocol.
She forgets her diplomas. Now she will say she has not a clue of what the Congressional protocol for events is (especially during election periods).
Poor John Murtha. He obviously has not a clue of the political sandwich he's in. Unfortunately, he is going to be smeared by the honesty deficit of Ms. I don't recall.
Shame on Anthony Weiner for enabling this fiasco.
