City Council Speaker Christine Quinn downplayed the challenge posed by Anthony Weiner in an interview last night with CNN’s Piers Morgan, who appeared to be having a rollicking time making fun of Mr. Weiner’s name.

Ms. Quinn, who is currently making the rounds promoting her new memoir, has so far avoided weighing in on the impact of Mr. Weiner’s late jump into the race. But Mr. Morgan managed to break through her usually well-rehearsed rebuttals–for a moment, at least.
