Did anyone else get a giggle when in his Goobernatorial Exit Speech New York Guv Stritcher said:

I go forward with the belief, as others have said, that as human beings, our greatest glory consists not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.


Though it be indelicate to say as much, Spitzer's ability to rise to the occasion was the one thing which was never in question.

I expect he'll pull a Marion Berry, go into rehab for some nefarious addiction, and then come back in a blaze of glory and be re-elected to much ballyhoo by those nutty Noo Yawkuhs. This is going to be interesting.

$80,000! That blows my mind. What an idiot.

I LOVE the word goobernatorial! I wish we used it up here.

fhb - For real. He could have been a lot more creative, frankly.

babs - Yeah, it's especially fun when used to describe peanut-farmer governors. It's a fun word with which to take libraties, too.

What amazed me is that he was dumb enough to believe that his regular large cash payments could go undetected - chump deserves everything coming to him.

I, OTOH, expect he will slide into the anonymity from whence he came. I never even heard his name until the day before he resigned. And his successor was referred to as "the 51-year-old, legally blind son of a Democratic Party operative." High credentials indeed!

I liked the bit about "taking responsibilty for hais actions"...only when caught apparently!..you have to laugh.

dba dude - Hubris. He was arrogant and thought he was untouchable, except by hookers, whom he wanted to touch him. What is actually gross is that on some level, he has to be loving the scale of the scandal and that he's now known for being such a badboy horndog. Yuck.

g bro - he certainly has a weasely way about him, doesn't he? If we're lucky, we won't hear from him again.

thud - Yeah, that was really special. I confess I've chuckled a bit.

Best thing about it is ol' Hill lost a super delegate. Client #9 was a SD and a Clinton supporter as is the new gooberner. Howsomever, the new lootenant gooberner is a Republican. Don't think he'll be going to the same convention, do you?

I saw clips of his press conference, with Stoic Wife by his side, suffering silently. I'd LOVE to see... just ONCE... a woman in that situation crack and do what normal women would do... to wit: slap the living SHITE out of him, live and in color.

Just once. Please, God.
