That Anthony Weiner, such a joker. On Thursday, the irrepressible disgraced ex-congressman and mayoral candidate hinted to us that his first Business Insider column, out Friday, would be about the 2008 election: “I think it’s still fresh,” he said, sounding mostly serious.
Ha-ha. Fooled us. The inaugural “Weiner!” rumination is actually about some sort of Tesla Motors flap, Silicon Valley, New Jersey politics and other evidently important matters. “Even though there’s not much chance of me swapping out my ’05 Ford Escape hybrid for one of the company’s Model X cars anytime soon, I’ve been watching the fight closely,” he writes. Good for you!
Some media-centric coverage of Weiner!:

Suppose we should have known a business topic makes more sense on a business site and all. Move along, no juicy text-message archives from ’08 primary battle here.
