Spitzer’s Other Woman

Posted by Ryan on March 13, 2008

Ashley Alexandra Dupre is the infamous prostitute “Kristen” that former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer had solicited, which led to his disgrace and resignation from office.  A high end prostitute is still a prostitute, it’s all just a matter of haggling price.  I don’t care that she was just 22 years old — she’s an adult who sold her body for money and that’s that; it’s not really that complicated.

But, in today’s culture such disgrace can make you a star! 

Penthouse wants Ashley to pose for an upcoming issue!  Pretty soon she might get her own show, where fellow high-end prostitutes might get to go into Red America and pretend not to know how the plebs live (sorry Paris)!  Not only can Ashley continue to make more mullah getting naked in front of unfamiliar men, but the New York Slimes has a story today that eventually focuses on her poor struggling music career.  How about getting this girl some therapy, an AIDS test, and a into good church first before she goes to jail!

Eliot Spitzer Resigns

Posted by Ryan on March 12, 2008

Finally!  After mulling it over for a few days, facing impeachment charges by the brave Republicans in the NY State Legislature, and realizing two days after everyone else that his political career in New York is over, Client #9 Eliot Spitzer resigned his office today, effective Monday to accommodate a smooth transition.

Good. 

Spitzer broke the law, demeaned his wife and the office, and should be completely ashamed of himself.  Then they should haul him into court, drag him over the coals and throw the book at ’em!  So, I’m pleased about today’s development. 

But what I wasn’t pleased about was seeing Spitzer’s poor wife Silda by his side again.  For once, I’d like to see an embarrassed, hurt, and degraded First Lady behind another mic outside away from her scumbag husband, calling him an SOB, and expressing her wishes to immediately file for divorce.  Had She Who Must Not Be Named done that in 1998 I would actually respect the woman.  Mrs. McGreevey was so shocked about her husband’s gay love-affair that I could understand her lethargic stares, but Silda Spitzer needs to step away from that sleazy whore-monger and treat him the way Type-A a**holes ought to be treated: publicly embarrass him, belittle him, and get your pride back, girl!  If for no one else, do it for your daughters who are watching how you behave when a man steps all over you in public.

Spitzer Swallows His Pride

Posted by Ryan on March 10, 2008

Eliot Spitzer, the illegal-alien-licence-loving Democrat Governor of New York, had to swallow his pride today and admit that he did something wrong, needs some down-time getting the trust of his family back, and will get back to us “in short order” (whatever that means).  It was all very vague and non-committal.

I had to hear the news on CNN since Fox News conveniently happens to be covered over by some school news channel at work.  Even after the brief legalese-filled press conference, CNN was showering Spitzer with praises and deeply hurt that such a man of character was identified as “Client #9” in an FBI probe of a prostitution ring.  Even some non-political types who were watching with me noticed the obvious bias in favor of a man who was renowned for being an arrogant, self-righteous, “progressive” jerk — who happened to be fingered in an FBI probe dealing with a prostitution ring, which are notoriously linked to organized crime! 

By the way, he’s also a superdelegate who has pledged to support She Who Must Not Be Named.  Priceless!  Why is it that everyone associated with our former President and his wife make me feel like I need to take a bath?

The story is still hot and the afternoon is still young, so there may be updates.

UPDATE #1:  Spitzer is facing possible impeachment charges from the Republicans in the NY Legislature. 

UPDATE #2:  Various headlines, whose links will unfortunately expire quickly, are turning this into the embarrassing just it is by saying things like the “Love Gov” from Fox News and “Ho No!” from the New York Post.
