Taiwanese Animators Finally Tackle the Anthony Weiner Story

Dramatic re-enactment.

Next Media Animation

At last, we have a high-level analysis of Anthony Weiner's tawdry fall and slightly-less-tawdry comeback attempt.

One reason Mark Sanford was able to front "humility" in his comeback was that he was seeking a less powerful job: Congress, not governor. Here and elsewhere, Weiner's scandal is put in the stream of "mayors gone wrong." But he's not a mayor! He was a mediocre congressman who gave good quote, and he ran for mayor once. Ben Adler has a slightly more serious study of the campaign here.
