The Times's engrossing and infuriating expose on NYC DOT Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan certainly starts off with a bangin' lede, with a surprise cameo from Representative Anthony Weiner! While Weiner has positioned himself as progressive with his aggressive push for health care reform, he also plays well with conservatives because of his staunch support of Israel's occupation of Palestine. And it looks like his position on bike lanes would make him look right at home on the editorial board of the NY Post:

On a balmy night last June, the city’s Congressional delegation gathered for dinner at Gracie Mansion. Representative Anthony D. Weiner, who aspires to live in the mansion someday, knew he would have only a few minutes with the host, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg. So he brought up the hottest topic he could think of: bicycle lanes, and the transportation commissioner who had nearly doubled the number of them, Janette Sadik-Khan.

"When I become mayor, you know what I’m going to spend my first year doing?" Mr. Weiner said to Mr. Bloomberg, as tablemates listened. "I’m going to have a bunch of ribbon-cuttings tearing out your [expletive] bike lanes."

Ha ha, stupid [expletive] bike lanes: reducing the strain on mass transit and encouraging [expletive] New Yorkers to reduce their carbon footprint in a time when [expletive] global warming threatens to put our city's [expletive] waterfront under water! Weiner, who really comes off as a [expletive] tool here, has not yet responded to our question about whether he's actually [expletive] serious.
