I’m tired of hearing about former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., and all the terrible things he has been doing on the Internet.

He made an error, or maybe it was several errors, and he lied about it and then swore to the lies and finally had to ‘fess up. He’s busted, and busted good.

Now his wife has discovered something about him, and so have Congress and the voters in his district and all the rest of us. He has entertained all the media for about two weeks or more, and things are not so good today for this N.Y. politician.

Make a note: Tweet at your own risk, and that goes for his women, too, long as they are of legal age. I don’t really care. It’s a family matter, and it has been a long time since most of us have held congressmen and congresswomen to a higher standard, anyway.

If we start throwing them out for this kind of offense, they might not be able to raise a quorum to pass the next tax increase. There are worse people in that town than Weiner. Let’s leave this poor guy to his many miseries.

How about if we move along?
