The NYPost’s John Podhoretz jokes that Señor Weiner is loco, but may have actually put some thought into his perverted alter-ego:
You are not permitted to laugh at the fact that Anthony Weiner posed as a man named Carlos Danger while sending pornographic photos of himself through the Internet — sometime after he resigned from Congress for doing just that.
Rather, you should admire Weiner’s vision, his ability to see into the future. Clearly, when he took on this new identity, he was anticipating his run for mayor in 2013.
After all, there is no Hispanic candidate in the race. What better outreach could there be than Weiner styling himself Carlos Danger — Latino lover, sender of sexed-up selfies, purveyor of personal porn? [...]
Clearly, though, Weiner’s true identity — you know, the repulsive, uncontrolled, power-hungry publicity hound willing to humiliate everyone he loves by raising his profile yet again when he knew there was material out there even worse than the stuff that got him ousted from Congress — is itself a pose, a ruse.
For when night falls and his wife is out of the hacienda, Anthony is at last free to become his best self — yes, I mean the mysterious man in black mask and hat and cape known only as the Carlos Danger, who haunts the mail of Yahoo with intimate photographs of his personal Zorro.
