New York Governor Eliot Spitzer is in a bit of hot water, and we don’t mean a hot tub (well, maybe). Seems he’s connected to a prostitution ring and has been for some time. Oops.

What a complete jackass!
Expect the Left-wing blogs to bring up noted Republican hooker-lover David Vitter. That would fall under the category of “Well, this guy did it, too!” that they are so fond of. Difference being Vitter isn’t facing charges. Louisiana residents are free to vote against Vitter, who was found out after the statute of limitations passed, and he should be challenged in the primary. But that does not change the facts of the Spitzer did. No amount of distraction will change the facts of what Spitzer did, but that won’t stop the Left from trying…
The Dow: Oddly enough, it did rebound around 2:15 (when the story broke), but has since reverted to the realities of business, not this jackass going down…politically, that is.
