#1 Huma Abedin - isn't she Hillary's Saudi girlfriend?

#2 The phrase they're using is 'protege'...

#3 3dc, according to Wikipedia, Huma was born in Michigan. Her father was a Muslim from India; her mother is from Pakistan. She spent some time in Saudi Arabia as a child, but came back to the US for college.
So, she's not actually Saudi. Whether or not she's Hillary's girlfriend is up for debate.

#4 You know... if some of Huma's nastier Muslim friends think Weiner has DISS'ed her with his actions... he may well have nowhere safe to run to. At least nowhere Al Qada or the Muslim Brotherhood can reach. I hope he likes the US station in Antarctica...

#5 Common 3dc! For Muslims its always woman's fault.

#6 I'm not PC correct enough for "protege". Call it like it appears.

#7 I suspect Ms Abedin is the daughter Mrs. Clinton never had -- all successful and political and all. After all, her real daughter quietly hangs out with NGO types, talking about possible decorators for the apartment instead of moving and shaking -- and lying as necessary -- to change the world.

#8 Oh goodness TW, that was way Ben Casey.

#9 "At this point it's absurd. He is not going to be the next mayor of New York. He is wasting time and space," Axelrod said.
Not to mention oxygen.

#10 ...oh, come on. He's just the air breathing device for the male genitalia. Oxygen is his reason to exist.

I don't understand, Shipman. It's been an awfully long time since I was a young, intense, idealistic surgeon at County General.

#12 Of course Axelrod is friends with Abedin - she's cozy with the Brotherhood, and Axelrod is cozy with Hussain, who is also cozy with the Brotherhood.

#13 You cut the charming, albeit overly jowled, young Miss Clinton without benefit of ethers.

#14 TW: "At her wedding to Weiner in 2010, Clinton told guests if she had a second daughter, it would be Abedin."
Hearsay, but I believe it. Being a disappointment to my own mother, I imagine Chelsea is relieved that there's someone to take the heat off. So she can pursue her own interests, like . . . interviewing the Geico Gecko. Snicker.

#15 Found scribbled on the back of a faded dinner menu from the jolly old Leviathan.
From the islamic Motor City
Came a maiden, pious, pretty:
Huma is her name
Such a clever girl is Huma!
She's our muslim clothes-horse puma
Really classy dame
She's such a politician
She got a swell position
To go across the sea to entertain
And so they shipped poor Huma
To dance and play the tuba
And grace 'em with her presence so urbane
They say that Huma is the Queen of Tony Weiner
Just because she plays his concertina
He only likes one song,
She plays it all day long.
The imams think it wrong
But oddly they keep shtum about it
Hill heard her play once or twice.
Oh! Murder! Still it was nice.
All the pols, they dress like Huma.
Some sport scandal, some rock rumor
Down old Chocolate City way.
Huma's habibti Hilly-Billy
Helped her meet a Hebrew willy
Who she thought was grand.
On a camel's back a-swaying
You could hear Miss Huma playing
Down teh Vineyard strand.
She didn't like the limelight
"Oh, maybe just a spotlight"
And Tony sat and listened with a tent.
And as he tried to kiss her,
You heard an Arab whisper,
"Oh Huma, how we love your instrument!"
They say that Huma will be Queen of Gracie Mansion
'Cause she plays for Weiner with such passion
She plays both morn and e'en
Just like the muezzin
Her drawers might be green
Please don't glower,
Gets her power.
At peace talks, she played so fast
Those fascist joos were aghast.
While the Arabs danced so silly
She would wink at Hilly-Billy
Down old Palesteena way.
Huma, she's the Queen of Tony Weiner.
Goodness, Gotham loves her concertina.
Each movement of her bags
Delights the tabloid rags
And makes them squeal like f--s
How they love it
Want more of it.
When she squeaks
That squeeze-box stuff,
All those sheiks
Just can't get enough.
They get fat and she gets leaner
As she chokes that concertina
Down old New York City way!
