The language of disease has taken another turn of the absurd in the ever-shifting story of Rep.
Anthony Weiner who recently admitted to sending graphic photos of his snickerdoodle to multiple young women. Instead of admitting responsibility for his actions, Weiner now says he has a "sickness" and needs "treatment" for it. This implies that he couldn't control his actions, of course.The genius in calling this a "sickness" is that Rep. Weiner can now undergo "treatment" and maybe even claim to get a sexting vaccine shot which "cures" him of the disease. The press would probably buy that, actually.
