"Anthony Weiner Drops to Fourth in New Poll, Won't Get Spitzer Vote"

"A new Quinnipiac University poll puts the disgraced former congressman in fourth place in the race to become New York's next mayor, a dramatic drop from last week's poll, which had Weiner in first."

Weiner has now made "disgraced former congressman" his official epithet. If he were a Homeric character, he would need no name to be re-identified in each scene, but could simply be "the disgraced one." Disgraced is to Weiner as swift-footed was to Achilles, rosy-fingered was to dawn, or wine-dark was to the sea.
