bitches & hos

and in this case the bitch is spitzer.

i thought i should share with you momgo's response which is brilliant:

"Holy crapballs. I thought it was going to say he had an affair with a top aide but it was over blah blah blah. This is really awful. He should resign."


um, yeah. my mom said holy crapballs. does your mom say that? i don't think so.


and dadgo followed up with this:


"Spitzer is another man who has his brains in his pecker. Is screwing around with a professional worse than having your winky whacked by an intern? Because I do not recall our wanting Bill to resign over that indiscretion. Oy Veh!!! What a sad state of affairs!"

yeah. equally brilliant. "winky whacked by an intern" -- amazing.


i am really saddened by this because i naively expected more from my governor. i knew there was something kind of smarmy about him but he was a relentless attorney general and he fought the good fight. and even though that all still stands he is going to have a very hard time bouncing back from this one. . .and to be honest i am getting tired of having to forgive these idiots and i don't think i should have to settle into a place where i expect nothing from the people who i elect. so why does this anger me more than bill's penis debacle?


because spitzer PAID for it. he paid a woman a large sum of money and brought her across state lines to have sex with her. this wasn't just an affair. this was paying for sex with a prostitute -- something that spitzer railed against when he was the a.g. and if i find it hypocritical that someone like larry craig gets to solicit men in the bathroom while spouting homophobic rhetoric than i should find it equally hypocritical when someone participates in the very industry that they spent years trying to dismantle as an elected official.


and i will never understand these wives who go to the mea culpa press conference with their douche-bag husbands. if it were me i'd be all "oh, hell no! fuck you, you asshole and your little 'i failed my family press junket' -- you get to go it a. l. o. n. e."


and then i'd throw a plate at his head and then i'd make sure that he had to go to the press conference alone with shards of fine china all over his suit and in his hair so that the public would know that this is one wife who wasn't going to play nice and wear pearls. and i'd tell his p.r. people to get away from me -- so that they way they could all sweat a little bit over what i might do or say.


and then i would buy a first class ticket -- no i would buy first class tickets for me and my friends so we could all go somewhere ridiculous like nice, or cannes, or bali and drink a lot of beverages with alcohol and umbrellas in them and we would stay in the fanciest of hotels and have spa treatments all day every day and then i would come home looking fabulous.


and the press would be like "look at mrs. blah da blee blah -- she looks gorgeous. and she's so smart and funny. he's such an idiot."


only then would i decide what to say and how to say it.


silda, feel free to use my plan of attack as you get through this humiliating debacle. but if you do all i ask is for a seat on that plane. . .i've always wanted to go to bali.

The problem for Silva is she is the one with all the $--so she ends up paying for the trip to Bali! I thought the throwing a piece of fine china a nice touch!

btw, shaygo (and i'm surprised dadgo didn't point this out), bill lied under oath (arguably) but otherwise, didn't do anything illegal. whereas what spitzer did was illegal. cheating isn't illegal. paying for it (morality aside) is illegal, and that's why the dude got busted and might go to jail.

Saw an interview with Mike McGreavy's wife. I'm sure you know he was the former gov of Rob's home state, who resigned after admitting a gay affair and coming out. In response to a question on a wife would stand beside her man, she said you do it b/c you are in shock. She said most of the time, the wife is told about the whole triggering episode and then told there is a press conference in an hour. She said your head is spinning, and you are so used to being cooperative for him and his aides, you just go along. She said today she cannot believe she did it.

BTW -- what do I have to select to have my comments published as Momgo?

Momgo said...

Never mind; I obviously figured it out.

Just read an article about Silda, and I had my facts wrong, Dadgo. Spitzer was the one born with the money; daddy was a real estate developer. Got confused b/c I knew she had been an M&A lawyer at Cravath, so I assumed she was the one with the dough.
