Anthony Weiner Stages Comeback, Part II

In his latest incarnation, he'll be writing for Business Insider.

Anthony Weiner isn't done lurking on your computer screen. This time, the failed New York City mayoral candidate and incorrigible sexter will be a monthly columnist for Business Insider.

The column—titled Weiner!—will run on the last Friday of each month, Business Insider's Hunter Walker informs us. It will be imbued with Weiner's "unique insider perspective."

The debut of Weiner! on March 28 will mark the second move in the former lawmaker's predictable if inadvisable comeback-narrative post-mayoral candidacy. The first was a cameo in Garry Trudeau's Amazon comedy Alpha House, the latest in a long string of political satires mocking life in Washington. The third, we're hoping, will be a reality TV show that faithfully documents what goes on in the mind of a man who cannot be dissuaded from running for public office, narrated by David Attenborough. (And, reminder, this is not the first time he's needed to make a political comeback. For the uninitiated, here are some details from Anthony Weiner Sexting Scandal, Round One.)

 

Weiner follows in the footsteps of Eliot Spitzer, who opted to reenter public life in late 2008 by writing a quasi-regular column for Slate. That didn't work out so well for Spitzer's latent political ambitions (last fall he lost in the Democratic primary for New York City comptroller to a lesser-known candidate). But Weiner's not discouraged.

"Maybe this will get me mentioned on the interwebs," Weiner tweeted Monday. And so it did.
