Rep. Weiner calls Senator Lieberman the derogatory term for er, um, wiener

The Hill reports (via Memeo):

Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) appeared on the Daily Show last night to chat with his old friend and roommate Jon Stewart.

Aside from the friendly ribbing and references to incriminating photographs of each other, Weiner took a shot at his healthcare nemesis Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.)

“My question to you is this: Is [Lieberman] a d*ck?” Stewart asked.

“Yes, Jon,” Weiner jokingly replied.

Lieberman once explained that he changed his mind on supporting a Medicare buy-in after realizing how much Weiner supported it.

So … lemme get this straight. Some dude who I’m sure has gotten teased unmercifully for years about his last name childishly calls a senior Congressional colleague a derogatory term for that same name?

You stay classy, Rep. Wiener, er, Wanker, er, Whiner, er, Weiner.

    Could be worse. The first and middle names of the gentleman from New York could be ‘Oscar’ and ‘Mayer’.

    If there’s one thing worse than having a name pronounced “weener,” it’s having a name that’s pronounced “weener” but spelled as though it were pronounced “whiner.”

    His name is actually Tony Wei-nis…..
