Anthony Weiner rears his head (don't be freightened)

It looks like former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner has started the public image rehabilitation process. After about a year of silence, he's quoted in a New York Times story profiling the Fox News program Fox & Friends:

“The conventional wisdom among Democrats is: Why participate in their Kabuki theater?” said Anthony Weiner, the former New York congressman who was one of the few members of his party regularly to accept Fox News invitations. He said those who ignore the network make a mistake by passing up a loud and influential megaphone, one that has no equivalent in cable news.

“You can huff and puff about how outrageous it is,” Mr. Weiner added. “But they have millions and millions of people watching them. And you have to proceed under the assumption that at least some of those people are persuadable.”

Step by step, let the healing begin. We're all in this together now.
