Hello, 12 Years of Republican Governors!

Wait, didn't "The Wire" conclude last night? Are we certain this is actually happening? Apparently so, according to the NY Times, famed crime buster Tommy Carcetti ahem, we mean Eliot Spitzer has been nabbed in a federal prostitution investigation. Rickey's seen his fair share of hypocrisy in his life, but this is pretty freaking epic. But on the plus side, if Spitzer steps down or is removed from office, Hillary Clinton does lose a superdelegate.... So there's that.

Crime-buster Spitzer is caught paying for sex, and we get some blind dude as our next Governor? You can't make this shit up! No, really, you'd get your ass kicked out of any writer's room if you proposed this plot twist.

Spitzer is a disgrace, there's no other way around it. I mean dude, he paid $5k for sex? His wife is pretty MILFy in my book. What's wrong, Eliot? No dildo action from the Mrs?

I'm trying to come up with a "Spitzer swallows" joke, but it's just not working.

We dont get good good stuff like this down in Australia, all our politicians are just boring. Actually thats probably a good thing.

Ricky,
Your blog is a microcosm of new york to little ol' me, in that it is sprawling, crazy, diverse, clever, mean, and hilarious. Keep it up man!

What a fuckin' jackass. Normally I couldn't give a rat's ass if a politician uses public funds to hire a one-legged crack ho' to diddle herself with his veto pen. Who cares?

But when Public Moralizer No. 1 is caught doing exactly what he's destroyed others for doing, well he's gotta go. Spitzer is Giuliani's Democratic twin.

Adam: we're salivating at the idea of David Patterson as NYS Governor. It's a comedy gold mine for Rickey. David Patterson tossing out the opening day pitch at Yankee Stadium perhaps?

Diesel: wethinks you just did.

Alex: bland ain't all that bad. But then again, in many nations (particularly those of the non-repressed variety), no one would bat an eye at a story like this.

Der Blaue Reiter: Rickey, a microcosm of NY? High falutin praise indeed--many thanks.

Mike: agreed, it's Spitzer's history of fervent crusading that's going to do him in. Clients 1 through 8 must be breathing a sigh of relief at the moment.

Adam said...

Rickey, did you just make fun of Paterson being blind too? Awesome!

Rickey Henderson said...

What, you thought Rickey was above taunting the disabled? You fool!

Chris C said...

What I don't get is how spineless his wife is. I'm not even married but I would expect my clothes to be on the front lawn if I ever pulled this shit.

Oh, and Spitzer haggled over the price for the whore too! What a cheap fuck.

i worked for a company that he went after and a lot of innocent people (i will concede there were some guilty ones) lost their jobs.

i heard there was dancing on the floor of the new york stock exchange when this story broke.

karma's a bitch, i always say.

Rickey Henderson said...

Dancing on the floor, huh? That sounds about right. The man was pretty much the Democratic version of Rudy Guiliani...

leigh said...

oh, it's on!!!
good riddance.
