So the kinda-successful Democratic Governor of New York State, Eliot Spitzer, has been caught in a prostitution bust.
So I have a simple question: is it required in some super-double-secret clause of the American constitution that chief executives and legislators get the monogamous part of their brains removed?
(Cynics: feel free to speculate in comments on whether those parts of the male brain even exist.)
I mean, this is just stupid. Spitzer not-too-subtly had his eyes on the White House. And, you know, it's not like the Dems have had any trouble with zipper-challenged Presidents in the past.
Maybe he can shake this off by 2016 and run to replace President Obama (see what I did there?) but really, stupid stupid stupid.
And I can't help but feel bad for Silda Spitzer, who's just been humiliated in a way that only a few women can really imagine -- maybe she can call the junior Senator from New York for advice.
