the spontaneous combustion of eliot spitzer

News flash. Men enjoy sex. Powerful men are hypocrites. News at 11:00.

I don’t want to spend a lot of time talking about the prostitution scandal bringing down New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, but, Jesus, $5,500 an hour? And that’s for one woman. What could she possibly be doing that would be worth almost $100 a minute? I’ve got quite the imagination, but I’m at a total loss.

    All of a sudden, Kwame seems like a cheap date.

    Perhaps if we circulated the story to all the girls walking along Michigan Avenue and Miles, they’d get the idea to move to Washington, D.C. and make some REAL money!

    Might I suggest they start around 14th and Conmneticut Ave and work their way toward the Capitol.

    (Gotta keep the Devil way down in the hole.)

    Or …

    How’bout that old Uncle Sam poster from WWII … this time with a wink from Uncle Sam as he points at the reader and says … “Uncle Sam Wants You, Babe!”

    Maybe we could have abenefit, raise enough for a bus, and get them AND their pimps outta town in “one swell foop” (sic).

    That elected officials can spend more on sex than I have ever made in two years of miserable employment is more than a bit, um, frustrating.

    Clearly you’re in the wrong line of business. If you were smart, you’d be making EXACTLY as much as your elected officials spent on sex.

    And, Ed, I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that the women hired by Spitzer shared very little in common with the ladies down the street.

    I heard that he paid them extra to dance to Duran Duran videos in front of a big screen TV.

    After “My Fair Lady” … anything is possible.

    From my travels to D.C. … it’s pick a corner, any corner, girls. And most business is done indoors in hotel bars. Any increase is working conditions and income should beat Your Motel.

    That boy’s wound tight. He’s no doubt got some freaky kink that needed out. This story is going to get super weird if anyone can find the prostitute.

    I think for that price she’s supposed to pretend she likes him.
