Opening Arguments

No joke

Well, there goes Anthony's Weiner's best excuse:

Sex addiction has often made headlines, with celebrities blaming their romantic foibles on the condition. However, a new study questions the notion that people can truly be "addicted" to sex.

The new study from the University of California, Los Angeles, suggests that self-professed "addicts" may simply have a high sex drive.

I've gotten tireder of the Weiner scandal quicker than I've gotten tired over any sleazy story in the last 10 years. It's just so, I don't know, tawdry. I sort of agree with actor James Woods, who tweeted: "Anthony Weiner. Amanda Byrnes. Same day, no less. No jokes. These are two cases of true mental illness. Is anybody caring for these people?" Only"'sort of" because setting yourself on fire is a little more disturbing than sexting photos of your junk, and Amanda Byrnes isn't seeking to run a major American city.
