But the Conquered, or their Children, have no Court, no Arbitrator on Earth to appeal to. Then they may appeal, as Jephtha did, to Heaven, and repeat their Appeal, till they have recovered the native Right of their Ancestors, which was to have such a Legislative over them, as the Majority should approve, and freely acquiesce in.

Weiner's Roots

Over at Salon.com there is a nice little piece about Anthony Weiner's political beginnings.  If you are disgusted with him in light of recent events, you probably won't feel any better after reading about his history.

UPDATE:  It's always a vast right-wing conspiracy, isn't it?  

His campaign donors said they were especially shocked and furious because a week ago the congressman attributed his online travails to a “vast right-wing conspiracy,” a contributor who spoke with him said.
I imagine that if there were a vast conspiracy, the conspirators would be increasingly frustrated by their targets beating them to the punch!
