or - my governor get's caught with his pants down.
Let's see another hypocrite in the political world - shocking! Eliot Spitzer, a man who as a prosecutor went after prostitution rings and white collar criminals with a passion. As attorney general continued to really fight for the people. Rose to governor, a rising star, a future presidential hopeful. A man with a smart and beautiful wife and three daughters, seemingly one of the good guys. A family man with a strong moral code.
Well that image is shattered - finding out that he's been participating in a prostitution ring (the kind he used to bust and prosecute) by allegedly hiring extremely high priced hookers for kinky sex.
And as he apologizes for his indiscretions his wife stands by his side fighting back tears. Gotta tell you maybe she's not as smart as I thought? Personally if I found myself in her shoes the only way I'd get that close to him again was if I had a weapon in my hand and was taking him down. I know couples do sometimes recover from infidelity and I even know one couple who managed. I doubt that I could or would take him back but even if over time I decided to do just that I can say with certainty that in the hours and days following a revelation like this there is no way I'd stand by his side and create a united front.
Some people see it as a sign of strength - to me it's more like weakness. Like being a doormat, like saying it's okay that he's a lying cheating bastard, I still love him, I don't deserve any better. It's part of the reason I don't like Hillary Clinton - I'd have wanted to castrate Bill after finding him cavorting with interns butof course it's well known that Monica wasn't the first indiscretion so maybe she was used to it by then? It's obvious at least to me that Hillary has her own agenda and Bill is just a means to that end. I mean anyone think she'd be running for president if her husband hadn't made it out of Arkansas? Nope - me either.
So later today - another lying cheating bastard who had an amazingly bright future will watch his dreams go up in smoke because he couldn't keep it in his pants. And unlike Hillary I don't really expect Silda to stick it out once the smoke clears.
