House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chair Steve Israel have called on Rep. Anthony Weiner to resign. News that his social media chat buddies included a 17-year-old apparently motivated the triple blast, though all reports indicate this particular dialogue didn’t dip to crotch level.

If it’s OK with David Vitter it’s OK with me.


Speaking of resignations: NBC ought to force one for Tracy Morgan. Tina Fey’s response, including friendly humor for the hateful “comic,” was disappointing. Norma Bates’ commentary on last night’s open line says it all.

UPDATE: No resignation yet. Instead, Weiner has announced he’s taking a leave of absence to get “professional treatment.”
