How could you stay mad at a face like this?

Puppies reenact Anthony Weiner's apology speech

More specifically, dachshunds. Because they're weiner dogs. Get it?

With all this Weinergate stuff going on yesterday, it's easy to look past what's important: that this entire debacle took place on the Internet. The Internet! Just think: 20 years ago, Anthony would have had to have taken those pictures with an actual camera, had them developed at CVS, and then mailed them off to a pen-pal he found by looking through student directories.

So it's only fair that a photo scandal that started on the Web would get parodied in one of the Internet's greatest gifts to us: macro images of adorable animals. These photos from Buzzfeed of guilty-looking dachshunds, overlayed with the text from Weiner's apology yesterday makes this whole media circus kind of worth it. Then again, I don't know any dogs that use Twitter, so I don't know why they'd be apologizing.
