CPSIA - He Was Always a Weiner

Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) is the latest politician caught doing naughty things ("The Incredible Shrinking Weiner", "Weiner Admits He Sent Lewd Photos; Vows Not to Resign", etc.).  It is no small irony that the zesty Mr. Weiner blew hot and cold on the CPSIA. It's one of his issues - he is a long-time member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee and one of the people we are ostensibly supposed to BEG for help on the CPSIA.  On two occasions, he sent letters asking questions about this noxious law (July 7, 2010 and January 7, 2009) but never actually voted to help us.  His letters are evidence that he knew that there were serious problems affecting, among others, his constituents.

Thus, we cannot nominate the Weinerman for the Hall of Fame, notwithstanding his apparent interest in our problems.  It is regrettably true that Mr. Weiner never actually DID anything for us other than send the letters.  As per the usual for EVERY SINGLE DEM, Weinerboy fell into line with the Waxmanis and refused to break ranks to support efforts to amend a law he himself questioned.  Now that's great government! 

At least he was never so heavily committed to our cause that it took time away from his hobbies.  Work-life balance is so important!

Dare we hope to someday miss Mr. Weiner???
