The Deadline Poet (Calvin Trillin) says farewell to NYC mayoral candidate (and laughing stock), Anthony Weiner. This blog will not miss this sick auteur of the selfie. If the virtual exhibitionist will not withdraw from the NYC mayoral race, the voters of The Big Apple will send him to well-deserved exile as a footnote in the lore of sexual dysfunction. The sooner the better. If this is (fair & balanced) public humiliation, so be it.

Tag Cloud of the following piece of writing
He swore this stuff was in the past,
But it continued on apace.
It’s odd enough he showed his junk.
It’s odder still he’d show his face. Ω
