WaPo's Cohen: Weiner is Just Like a Christian 'Thrown to the Lions'

The sweepstakes to see who can offer up the most ridiculous defense of Anthony Weiner is ongoing, but we have a strong late breaking entry from the Washington Post's Richard Cohen:
Have to love that bit about how the "general idea is the same." That's right Weiner's predicament is just like innocent Christians who preached love and redemption being ripped apart by feral animals for popular amusement.
Of course, Cohen doesn't stop there:
Really? No harm was done? And Cohen is in a postion to judge this how? I'm not even sure we've begun to get the true story of what Weiner has done yet. The press has much to atone for, but the real crime here is media hypocrisy? Not the hypocrisy of the guy who betrayed his marriage vows or worked in Congress to pass the Keeping the Internet Devoid of Sexual Predators Act?
