Joe Scarborough: “A lot of people are upset with Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats for doing what they did, but they’ve got a chance to take the House back. The best parallel to this is Mark Foley. When Mark got in trouble, the Republican Party – after botching it terribly – worked aggressively to throw him overboard because it was getting in the way of them controlling Congress. That’s what happened here. That’s the political story here. The Democrats had to move quickly on Anthony Weiner to get him out, so they could keep the subject line as ‘Medicare’ and not ‘sex pictures.’”
