It will always be too soon, but Anthony Weiner is making his way back into the limelight. This time, Weiner will be taking on the role of columnist for Business Insider. What is Business Insider thinking? What makes a failed, shamed and rather stupid politician capable of writing effective commentary?

Weiner will now have a monthly column on the online outlet called “Weiner!”

In a statement from Weiner, he said, “It’s great to have the opportunity to add the always smart and often iconoclastic coverage of politics and policy at Business Insider. I look forward to a spirited conversation with the BI community.”

The disgraced politician most recently attempted a run at mayor of New York City, but lost after more scandal came out. An online relationship with a female who was not his wife caused many voters to be turned off from Weiner. This is obviously besides the fact that many people didn’t even like him based on his politics.

This seems like a clear publicity stunt from Business Insider. I can’t say I am surprised though, because, let’s be honest, I know I won’t be able to keep myself from reading his next dumb comment! And it’s obvious that Anthony Weiner is getting desperate for attention, especially now that he is considering a run for political office in 2014.
