Posted on 03/04/2010 6:26:11 AM PST by AtlasStalled
Eliot Spitzer says buying sex from hookers was less of a "violation" of his marriage than a love affair with an "emotional component" would have been. * * * Asked why not just have an affair, instead of going to hookers, Spitzer said, "I know this is parsing it very thin, but the emotional component would have in some ways been a worse violation."

I can understand his pov, as twisted as he is.
What a stand up guy.
LOL! I didn’t believe that was the real title of the article so I had to check it out. Sure enough!
Pride goeth before a fall.
That reminds me of this NPC character in one of my favorite games.... . Fernando’s New Beginings.... he’s a pimp, but he markets his prostitutes as an outlet to sexual fantasies to avoid emotional attachment that comes with sexual infidelity, so as to “save the marriage”...
Sure...so he did it for his wife's sake, right !

"Eliot Spitzer: Why I liked hos"
PIG - and an ugly pig.
Technically you are correct. I don’t know if there’s a casual rule about real short words, putting in an apostrophe just for visual clarity? But you are right, apostrophes are for contractions and possessives, and hos is neither.
She likes Ding Dongs.
Some like half a Ho Ho.
“I know this is parsing it very thin, but the emotional component would have in some ways been a worse violation.”
What a guy! Yeah, meaningless sex with a prostitute using money-laundered campaign funds is much more ethical than an affair of the heart.
(Two snaps up for the title.)
Just as Bill Clinton said fil?”*tio isn’t sex.
Visiting hookers isn’t bad either?
Well just ask your Wife what she thinks about this b.s.
OR if the rolls were reversed and it was the ladies getting
Their weenkies wanked what would the gents be saying????
I have guns around here. And the little lady knows how they work.
Without daddy’s money Spitzer would be a sign boy on a road crew.
It is twisting rationalizations such as Spitzer is making that allows receiving oral gratification to be classified as something other than sex.
hos, not ho’s.
Unless the word following ho’s is assumed to be something said ho possesses.
He continues to humiliate his wife and daughters.
What a piece of garbage.
Pathetic. Theoretcially, one should be in a marriage “with an emotional component” ... which is why the non-emotional-hooker-banging is just as offensive as emotional-non-hooker-banging.
Yeah, like “tomatoes” and “potatoes”.
It should read:
"Eliot Spitzer: I'm a ho."
Depends on what the definition of is, is.
I don't like those NYC tabloids, but I've always loved the creativity of their headlines.
Ho's what? Eye color, hair style?
Illiteracy in gardening is a sad thing.
Yes. Especially, when his wife takes his dentures away ....
We discussed this conundrum re; Tiger Woods. Folks were saying Elin might have been able to forgive one indiscretion but not a dozen.
IMHO - one infidelity, like Gov. Sanford’s *soul mate* betrayal is one too far - thereafter, why bother to count.
So Spitzer’s logic is twisted, but hey - any port in a storm.
“Yeah, I F’d her. That's right, I F’d her. Bur baby; I make LOVE to you!”
bwaney fwank doing lewinskys?
SHould be hoes. Hos would be a dude in Texas missing an ess.
Whether he believes this or not, whether he is right or wrong he is still a jackass for continuing to talk about the matter. Hasn’t his wife been humiliated enough? When does this woman get her life back?
The only size that matters with a hooker is the size of the wallet.
THAT is why he liked hookers - and nothing else, I’d wager! ;-P
Only lawyers and dims think like this. Everyone else knows it’s laughable. “It didn’t mean anything!” Heh heh. Yeah, that’d fly in my house. My widow would wear black...
May I ask what Rummyfan means?
I thought Romney, or gin rummy.
As a kid I use to play Rummy and Gin Rummy with two very old Holocost survivors.
Just asking. Meaning no insult or harm.
Like to play rummy and gin rummy too.
I actually understand his logic, not condoning it mind you. He was looking for sex, and using a call girl certainly means you can order what you like, and there are no further obligations.
>> than a love affair
You can’t buy love.
Hos have contractions...
IMO it is kinda silly for anyone to feign shock or actually believe Spitzer was taken to the woodshed because of his morality/immorality/ hiring $5000 Hookers.
Becoming a real big shot these days likely involves something akin to “making your bones” before the true powers behind the scenes.
We as peasants have no idea what really goes on behind the closed doors of Mansions on Private Estates now do we?
People like Spitzer may have to perform like talking monkeys. Compromising themselves long before those who allow them to move into position of public power do so.
Perhaps he was relatively conservative.. he reportedly was only having sex with females. Perhaps we should be encouraged that farm animals were not somehow involved?
Let’s take a different tack for a moment,
What if Spitzer mistakenly began to believe he was in a position of authority to benefit the people?
That would set those behind the scenes players on fire now wouldn’t it?
Read this Article in the Washington Post which came out a few months before his “Fall from Grace”.
“Predatory Lenders’ Partner in Crime”
He really slams the Banksters far more than President Bush doesn’t he? Missing the mark if one supports enlightened progressive politics where he should have been slamming Bush and giving the Banksters a minor role.
He also reputedly went on as Governor to sink a number of big monied folk’s plans to get their hands on a steady stream of NY Tax Payers money.
Spoiling for a fight: the rise of Eliot Spitzer
By Brooke A. Masters
Editorial Review - Kirkus Reviews Copyright (c) VNU Business Media, Inc.
A balanced biography from Washington Post reporter Masters of New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer, called “Crusader of the Year” by Time in 2002 and a headline-hunting bully who is frequently the target of Wall Street Journal editorials.Spitzer, like one of his reformer heroes, Theodore Roosevelt, comes from a privileged background yet has earned a reputation as a foe of corrupt financiers ...
Like I said.. what if he were so foolish at one point to believe he was actually in office to represent the people?
What if the same were true for Bush Jr? He started out like a house afire. Genuinely seemed like a fella interested in doing good...appeared to have a good heart.. then faded in the stretch.
Could he have also been told just “How the Cow ate the Corn” by the rich and powerful?
I really wonder at times if we haven’t by sheer accident put or found relatively honest persons in power.. then thru our ignorance, brushed off our hands and said to ourselves..
“Our work is done” never to fully realize the depth and breath of institutionalized corruption that exists.
That the apparently, species most rare, the honest politician, probably cannot even obtain an honest staff in a place like Washington DC.. waltzed around, wined and dined and attacked from all sides.
The information and facts on any issue controlled by Staffers selected by Party Heads and Special Interest Organizations.
Heck, I do not know.. But it is an interesting possibility at least to me.
Somewhere in there might there also be a kernel of hope?
That’s for clearing the underbrush.
