Eric: You've heard about people who give up smoking the instant they are diagnosed with lung cancer? Weiner is like a guy who keeps smoking after the diagnosis, keeps smoking when the chemo doesn't take, and then tells the hospice volunteer he's quitting. Why bother trying to control your weird little compulsion now Anthony? You've already weakened your party, humiliated your otherwise exceptional wife, and it's best to not even think about the ridicule your son will be subjected to in about 7 years (at this point the only decent thing to do is give him his mother's last name). Your dirty little secret has already gone off like a bomb (if a bomb could explode 3 TIMES!), and the shrapnel has caused a ton of collateral damage, and now you want to talk about defusing it? I've got a better idea: go see if JC Penny's needs a new model for the tighty-whitey insert on Sundays, that's seems to be the ultimate extension of your life goals anyway.
