"Memo To Anthony Weiner: Never Resign!"

With the strange Anthony Weiner story seemingly gaining momentum, I think it’s time to revive my basic advice for surviving a sex scandal:

1. Be an incumbent.
2. Don’t resign.

If Weiner doesn’t resign, what’s going to happen to him? Will he lose a primary? Ha! Will a Republican beat him? Double ha! People survive much crazier scandals all the time. The key thing is to keep your wits about you, and refuse to resign.
