A Girl Like Spitzer

March 20, 2008

A clever if syntactically challenged panhandler held a handwritten sign in Times Square: “I need only $4,300 so I can meet a nice girl like our Governor Spitzer” [hat tip: New York Times].

Speaking of political sex scandals, the release of Hillary Clinton’s schedule as First Lady may offer further insight into Interngate. Does anyone else find it odd that on seven occasions when Monica did it with the president, Hillary was in the White House at the same time? I guess Bill couldn’t just sneak off to the Days Inn a la New York’s classy new governor. But couldn’t he have kept his pants on until his wife was out of town negotiating bilateral arms treaties or freeing political prisoners? Then again maybe Bill and company were taking a page from the Friday-night play book of a mayor who became governor of New Jersey.

“But she will continue to find herself in a difficult position mathematically.”

It’s from today’s New York Times.
