Hubris heroes

     Charlie Sheen.

Donald Trump.

Anthony Weiner.

One more and we’ve got a Hubris Mount Rushmore.

The year is about halfway through and the media has been busy working overtime covering stories about people who don’t really matter in the grand scheme of things.

Sheen and his goddesses.

Trump and his false bravado.

Weiner and his… you get the picture.

While the Weiner scandal kept unfolding, the media kept asking themselves when will Congress get back to the peoples’ business.

As long as nobody is covering that, why bother?

Why is anybody surprised when they hear a lot of people get their “news” from “The Daily Show”?

Jon Stewart is the most “respected”newscaster since Walter Cronkite.

Walter was great, but his timing was awful when it came to delivering a punchline.

Weiner resigned on Thursday, so the Democratic Party’s long, nationally-covered nightmare is over.

All the Weiner jokes now will come off like trying to pull an April Fool’s joke on April 2.

Right, and Jay Leno is on Conan O’Brien’s Christmas card list.

The talk is that Weiner boy can disappear for a while, check into some phony Lindsay Lohan rehab treatment center, find Jesus and get back into the spotlight.

America loves redemption.

We like to prove F. Scott Fitzgerald wrong — there are second acts in life.

So Weiner boy will keep out of sight (he better get out of New York if he wants to play recluse) and resurface in some career-changing format.

Maybe he’ll eventually be on MSNBC, where he was a recurring smarty-pants knipping at the cuffs of conservative windbags at Fox News.

Or maybe he can go the entertainment route. Here are some ideas:

1. His comeback will be in a TV ad during the halftime of next year’s Super Bowl (just like Betty White did.) He’ll do a parody on the Oscar Mayer wiener song:

“Oh, I wish I was an Oscar Mayer wiener.

Instead of a Weiner named Anthony.

For if I were an Oscar Mayer wiener

No one would be making fun of me.”

2. He could try and convince network executives  that he’d be ideal hosting a new technology savvy reality TV show called “So You think You Can Twitter.”

3. He could team with former Sen. John Ensign, who resigned over his own sex scandal, and travel the country on “The Real Torpedo of Truth Tour.”

4. He could try and convince Sarah Palin that he will be her running mate on a third party ticket in the 2012 presidential race. They could use the slogan “Quitter and Twitter.”

5. Maybe execs at another network could be convinced that he would be the right choice as emcee of a laugh-fest where famous people are raked over the coals for fun. They could call the show “Weiner Roast.”
   For now, it’s time for Anthony Weiner to go away.
   And for the media to start covering real news that’s important to hard-working everyday people.
   Well, one out of two ain’t bad.
