"Only Mr. Weiner's tech-savvy campaign throbs through its veins with populist sentiment. The former congressman lasted even when his competitors told him to finish early. His moderate leadership will offer the city protection. Unlike past mayors, he will reach around the table to deal with both parties, rather than passing reforms through the back door. This man is firm in his beliefs, and he is not afraid to sweat. When he unloads his policy ideas, people swallow. The voters of New York are swallowing his message whole.

"Mr. Weiner is not one to go down.

"The Daily Caller editorial board did not come to this decision lightly, but, on behalf of the entire news media industry, and based on our experiences with the good people in the City that Never Sleeps, we have come to one painful, exhausting, and gratifying conclusion:

"New York needs Weiner."

-- the (non-existent) editorial board of the Daily Caller, Tucker Carlson's right-wing nutjob website, endorsing former Rep. Anthony Weiner's long-shot candidacy for New York City mayor.
