Professional media troll Anthony Weiner will be the next political columnist for Business Insider, a site run by professional media troll Henry Blodget.

In a column titled "Weiner!" the former congressman and failed New York City mayoral candidate will pen commentary with "the unique combination of brashness and wonkiness that made Weiner one of last year's most memorable candidates," which is one of the least-inspired euphemisms for the sexting scandal that eclipsed his mayoral bid in in 2013.


"It's great to have the opportunity to add to the always smart and often iconoclastic coverage of politics and policy at Business Insider," Weiner said in a statement. "I look forward to a spirited conversation with the BI community."

Weiner, who also writes for the New York Daily News, begins his media takeover March 28!
