Anthony Weiner's Funny Crack on John Boehner: 'What Am I, Anthony Waynor?'

Last night at the Congressional Correspondent's dinner, Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-NY, was announced as the guy with designs on the next mayorship of New York -- a job which, as you might imagine, requires a pretty good sense of humor. Luckily, the Brooklyn-born Weiner proved he's up for the job in that regard, unleashing a funny speech with bon mots about double parking, his anatomically slang-ish last name, Republicans recycling, etc. -- joke talents he certainly honed with his friend and former roommate, Jon Stewart. Sure, Weiner's no Marty Markowitz, but he definitely won a couple points with that Boehner joke. We were all thinking it.  [via Raw Story]
