Your Tax Dollars Hard At Work

If you own a television or radio and haven’t been totally oblivious to the news, you’ve probably heard that staunch anti-corruption Governor of New York Eliot Spitzer (pictured) was recently caught by the Feds as “Suspect #9” in an alleged high-profile prostitution ring. Spitzer supposedly spent $80,000 in this scandalous little operation and was found out after some suspicious money transfers linked to the Governor.

So it’s obviously a terrible thing for the Governor’s wife and three daughters to have to deal with, and while I have no sympathy for Spitzer’s call for resignation, at least it was a “high-profile” prostitution ring and not some low-rent operation run by some Staten Island fuggo working at Scores.
Not sayin’, just sayin’.

In other political news, there’s been some outrage over former Representative, former Vice Presidential nominee, and current financial adviser to Hillary Clinton’s Presidential campaign Geraldine Ferraro‘s comments about a certain Democratic Presidential candidate:

“If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman, he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept.”

Plenty of people are outraged over Ferraro’s statement, though she later went on to say, “Let me also say in 1984 — and if I have said it once, I have said it 20, 60, 100 times — in 1984, if my name was Gerard Ferraro instead of Geraldine Ferraro, I would never have been the nominee for vice president.”

Senator Clinton informed The Associated Press that she does not agree with Ferraro’s comments, saying, “”We ought to keep this on the issues. There are differences between us. There are differences between our approaches on health care, on energy, on our experience, on our results that we’ve produced for people. That’s what this campaign should be about.”
Right, because you’ve been great at that so far, Hill.
