For the past two days, Glenn Reynolds has been furiously pecking away on the Spitzer story (and these are just the edited highlights):
UPDATE: More Spitzer comedy, with links to Spitzer jokes from Letterman, Colbert, et al. Don’t you think he wishes the writers’ strike were still on?
ANOTHER UPDATE: Unintentional comedy from Alan Dershowitz…"the outcry against Spitzer was not because he was some man seeing a prostitute, but because he was a guy who puts prostitutes in jail seeing a prostitute."
ROGER KIMBALL: "My own feeling is that there are so many reasons to dislike Eliot Spitzer that I would hate the issue of hypocrisy to obscure his many other, more heinous faults…
SILDA SPITZER JOINS PISSED-OFF POLITICAL WIVES CLUB, plans Senate bid.
THE EXAMINER: "There is no honorable alternative to Spitzer’s resignation." Which doesn’t narrow the field as much for him as it might for some . . . .
UPDATE: No love for Spitzer from The New York Times:
A TAX ANGLE to the Spitzer mess?
Meanwhile, it looks as if Spitzer’s real crimes were financial, not sexual.
Meanwhile thoughts on the hypocrisy.
UPDATE: Stephen Green: "Cleaning up New York one prostitute at a time. Sometimes maybe even two at a time."
ANOTHER UPDATE: Heh. Read the whole thing.
MORE: Big roundup from Professor Bainbridge.
STILL MORE: Heh: “Prostitute Admits Link to Elliott Spitzer; Resigns From Escort Service in Disgrace.”
Also: Clinton Declines Comment on Spitzer.
MORE STILL: "Maybe Vitter should have made things right – and changed his political affiliation before getting caught."
FINALLY: A Wall Street reader doesn’t want Spitzer to resign…
And another game of Name That Party! at ABC.
Plus, a funny…
And, Governor Giuliani?
Now let’s take a look at Putz’s entire output on the David Vitter (R-LA) hooker story:
I HAVEN’T PAID MUCH ATTENTION to the D.C. Madam story…
Yep, still totally non-partisan.
Still going. Just like Pavlov’s dog.
