The Supreme Court of Assholedom will be ruling on the question of Anthony Weiner in the upcoming days. To that end, I’d like to solicit reader opinions on the following questions that have been put before the court.

1. Is Anthony Weiner an asshole?

2. Are you automatically an asshole if ... you claim you can't recognize your own crotch?

3. ... if you publicly tweet pictures of your junk?

4. ... if you're leering and snorting at reporters' questions in one week, then breaking down crying and begging forgiveness when you get caught?

5. ... if you legitimize Andrew Breitbart?

6. ... if you condemn one congressman, but excuse another for the same behavior because he happens to be a member of your party?

Debate among the justices on all of these questions was fierce and contentious. Some justices, in particular Justice Schmid, complained that the questions (in particular question #4) were leading. The decision to come shortly.
