It's a Weiner roast! Benny Johnson of Accuracy in Media gives us a humorous and historical look at why it wasn't the inappropriate behavior that did Anthony Weiner in, it was the lying.

All seemed well in Weiner World until Luke Russert applied a little heat to the situation. As we saw this week, it fell to pieces from there. We have now entered into a new generation of political sex scandal :LOLcats, yFrogs, sexy SMS, dirty DMs, porn starlets, Maddow softballs, screen grabs, political jabs, hashtags, phallic double-entendres, and a pending House Ethics patdown -- this story has it all.
