Will Eliot Spitzer resign in time for this evening's network newscasts? I wouldn't if I were him. I'd wait until right afterwards, so that my smiling face wouldn't appear simultaneously on every TV set in the Western world.
This is not New York provincialism. Spitzer is practically the most prominent and powerful Democrat in a huge state Hillary Clinton's state, Wall Street's state, the state of millions of Democrats.
Spitzer's boner really sticks out, even in this day and age. He didn't just get some on the side. He violated the law, if the federal complaint and published reports are true.
Yes, it will be more important to the country when Citigroup finally collapses. That will be a real disaster.
Still, there's some meat to this Spitzer thing. In any case, the way it went down was a case of exquisite timing, coming on the heels of last night's final episode of HBO's The Wire.
My buddy and former colleague Adamma Ince just texted me:
Looks like Lester got Spitzer on the wire too. She's referring to Lester Freamon, the ace detective on that ace investigative entertainment series about political corruption. Lester, adept at tapping and taping politicians, lawyers, and drug dealers, was the shining cop of all "murder police" on that instantly legendary series.
Judging from the complaint that apparently involves Spitzer, there was some pretty good bugging going on against him too.
Lost in the babble over the Spitzer story are the dubious prostitution laws. Why exactly is prostitution criminalized? However, it is, and Spitzer just got finished with a long stint as attorney general, where he hounded others for breaking laws. And now he's governor.

It's time to resign--- and bring this episode to a "climax".
For spitz, I recommend the withdrawal method.
It should come to an end.
Thought bubble over elliot's head: Yeah, why IS prostitution illegal, anyway? I know! I'm the governor! I'll make it legal!
Hannity & Colmes guest from Albany just reported if Spitzer does not resign they will begin impeachment process.
I think he did around 1200 am Feb 14
Love the pic, slicker use to bite his lower lip.
Spitzie is actually swallowing both of his.
Maybe wifie is administering a wedgie out of camera shot.
Adios, leftist scumbag lawyer-pol!! These three words make it a redundant phrase...
When will Spitzer Finally Pull Out?
It is my understanding that he already did that a number of times, and that he paid handsomely for the privilege each time he did so.
Wonder if the evidence will stand up in court.
Maybe he’ll have a hot attorney.
Caught with his pants down.
Maybe Missy has been phoning up Hildebeast for tips on how (and why) to “stand by your man”.
