HUMA-weiner

It is universally acknowledged that Anthony Weiner, now sentenced to prison and a hefty fine for messing about, online, with an underage female human,* has a deep-seated and quite weird fixation on taboo Internet flirtation of an overtly sexual nature.

Whew. That was a mouthful.†

“There’s just something wrong with him.” That seems to be the conventional wisdom.

In all the discussion of his perversions and prevarications, though, I’ve never heard anyone blame his compulsive fixation either on his marriage to Huma Abedin or to her more-than-professional connection with the poisonous Hillary Clinton.

I would be willing to entertain such notions. There is a sort of Sauronian, sexually chthonic power at the heart of the Clinton-sphere, quite capable of pulling in and corrupting otherwise innocent people.

Of course, more likely it just pulled in another creep.

* This is for future, alien historians, to distinguish Weiner’s humdrum fixations from post-Contact fornications.

† That’s what she said.
