- The End Of Carlos Danger

It's tough to find a man more prototypical of the problems of the American left than Carlos Danger - the pseudonym that Anthony Wiener used for online sexting. Before being exposed, the combative New York Democrat was a rising star of the left, and was being groomed by the machine he married into, for a bigger national role.

Congressman Wiener? Senator Weiner? President Wiener? All of them could have potentially been on the table had he received the unequivocal backing of the Clinton political machine. That machine is of course, a big part of the problem too. The Clinton machine's ability to ignore serious character flaws cast in the shadow of their unbridled lust for power, was a well documented problem. And if good old Carlos had stuck to women over the age of 18, he'd probably be well on his way to glory.

But, as it turns out, he liked em young. Too young. And in spite of the left's rapid success in recent years in destroying the fabric of American society and the institutions that support it, pedofilia is still a step too far. The Clinton's could have seen past it of course. But when it all became public, the American Public could not.

That makes this story from the New York Times, Anthony Wiener's epitath: Anthony Weiner to Plead Guilty to Resolve ‘Sexting’ Inquiry

None of the stories I could find on the topic mention whether this is a Felony or Misdemeanor. Since Mr. Wiener is a Democrat, the failure to mention it by the press means that it likely is. Had he been a Republican the world Felony could be read in the headline, but Democrat's don't get that kind of rough treatment in the press, even Democrats like Weiner.

Also unmentioned is whether this guilty plea will put him on the sex offenders list, so by the same rules of modern media, one can assume it does. If both of those unwritten assumptions are true, then he is no longer qualified to work in a number of industries, or to vote. He will however be eligible to hold office again, though the odds of that are small, even in New York.

Of course, it's possible that neither of those assumptions is true, and the press is failing to notice these important details in order to spare a prominent and well connected Democrat the public outcry that would come from Wiener being given special treatment. You never can tell these days with the press.

But whether he's being held to the law like the rest of us, or being held above it by the media and the courts, this admission will ensure that we have seen the last of Carlos in what we still laughingly call, the public service.
