Eye roll: NYTimes is hopeful of a Weiner comeback

Disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner and his wife welcomed New York Times Magazine into their home to dissect their post-scandal lives:

They present as two people who have painstakingly pieced their private life back together: they cook dinner and watch TV and have friends and family over to their spacious prewar apartment for special occasions. They seem to be functioning again as a couple, even unselfconsciously bickering in front of the waiter. But what they do not yet have a handle on is their public life. Before he resigned from Congress, Weiner was leading in early polls as a candidate for mayor of New York, and almost immediately after the scandal, there was speculation about whether he could make a comeback. Could anyone survive such an ignominious end to a Congressional career? Much less someone whose attack-dog tendencies made him so many enemies? The two of them had seemed to be a power couple on the cusp of a Clintonian rise. Now what?

Ugh, gag me.

Will the "power couple" make a comeback? the Times wonders.

Um, not with creeptastic photos like this...

And do we really need to be reminded of this?
