Is Prostitution Prosecutor being Persecuted ?

“… he did knowingly transport and hire the hooker … “

Spitzer swearing inNot a full day has passed before the story seems to already have gotten thrown off (or perhaps ‘on’) the rails. We think that the countermeasures were predictable. There is an article at Raw Story that is more revealing, but not convincing. In brief, the story suggests that Scott Horton, NY Attorney and Harper’s contributor believes Gov. Spitzer was set up. We think Raw Story just wanted to scoop because they didn’t even use Horton’s first name in the article. Right there was a tip-off.

Secondly and maybe even more revealing, the article features a picture of Horton, not Spitzer. We think that this is more revealing about the purpose of the original article as a way to self promote Horton than to point to any definable plot against Spitzer. After all … he did knowingly transport and hire the hooker, no ? He did confess to having, at least, disappointed his family and State, no ? But to listen to Horton’s suggestion, he thinks Spitzer should be invoking the ‘Shaggy’ defense “It Wasn’t Me!” We think Horton’s premise is a self-aggrandizing attempt to throw his name in the political spotlight.

Sad But True

“… didn’t require the skill of Sherlock Holmes …”

As for the original report by Brian Ross at ABC, it was a good and the many other reportsHolmes have made it clear that Spitzer was the object of the investigation and that suspicious money transfers were the original object of the investigation. It is not difficult to understand, certainly for a crime fighting prosecutor, that criminal investigations are a continuous set of theories that lead professionals in various directions. It doesn’t matter whether its a U.S. Attorney or Daschell Hammett – everyone with a pulse over the age of 12 pretty much understands this global reality. This didn’t require the skill of Sherlock Holmes to uncover. Perhaps he and his wife have an understanding. No doubt they do now.

At the Speed of Might

“… paranoia would have served him as a better mistress.”

We think it highly likely that Spitzer has made an enormous cast of enemies in his rise to power. He has been noted for a fierce fighting style and he has been quoted by a list of Msters Bookdetractors – having made direct threats about prosecuting prominent evil-doers. We think paranoia would have served him as a better mistress. In an instant, the Eliot Spitzer has become a household name that will likely be the new “Hypocrite” for a time.

While Spitzer would have to prefer being defined by his successes, as he is portrayed in a highly flattering Eliot Ness-ish portrayal of an avuncular crime fighter in Brooke Masters’ book: Spoiling for a Fight – The Rise of Eliot Spitzer; we are loathe to think of the next books that will sum up the corporate rocking Governor Spitzer because he, essentially, cheated on his wife and hired very expensive hookers.

The Political Process Will Pay the Price

“… everyone’s vision will be obscured by the political food fight.”

Make no mistake about it, allegations will fly – novels will be written and a few fortunes made over Eliot Spitzer’s indiscretions and quite possibly, crimes. It’s the very fuel the that keeps the lights burning so that as we stare at the fire – Washington insiders are busy shredding the Constitution. He’s a Democrat and before long some bloated Right Wing hate monger is going to reveal that he once dated Hillary and before long the Left will respond and everyone’s vision will be obscured by the political food fight.

So Eliot Spitzer’s romp was more than just a whipped cream and a trip on Amtrak. This was a harpoon to Democratic Politics and a further leg-up to the neo-cons, who have hijacked the Republican Party and replaced it with politicians – the likes of highly offensive and disturbing Rep. Steven King of Iowa, or Rep. Jack Kingston of GA, two of the House’s most blatant graffiti artists, who will, most assuredly, tie this into Barack Obama’s middle name.


GOP Offensive Language : Destroying the American Image at Home and Abroad

Jack Kingston (R-GA): An example of the cancer rotting GOP

Jack Kingston epitomizes many citizen’s worst nightmares about our government. That being, that it is infiltrated by essentially unproductive irritants that treat our government and leaders in the opposing party, as enemies of our country. We, at The Almost Daily Binx, opine that Jack Kingston represents the low of politics. A Tom Delay styled smiling joke-ster that repeats platitudes and follows the orders of his political bosses with the precision of a blindly faithful village idiot.

Of late, his Billy Cunningham styled repeating of Barack Obama’s middle name is not onlyRep. Jack Kingston - R-GA offensive to Obama supporters, but rather points to another ideology of the Republican Party that offers offense to anything Muslim, or even Middle Eastern. It is offensive, un-American and by any standard, pure bigotry. The lapel pin controversy that this career liar has perpetrated is another example of his blind faith in following the orders of his party bosses who sent him out like human mine-sweeper. Of course, he’s ambitious and evil enough to jump at the chance.

Islamo-Facism ?

Not only an incredibly inappropriate term, but how did these freedom eating zealots get away with insulting one of the world’s most prominent religions? Well, they didn’t. It’s not only George Bush and his White House, but his eager, willing and dim-witted accomplices such as Kingston and scores of others, that have routinely insulted other nations, other religions and lauded the invasion of a Sovereign Nation and presiding over the deaths of untold tens of thousands of Iraqi civilians, the displacement of millions of surviving Iraqis and the creation of the largest terrorist condition that this planet has ever known. Imagine of we condemned TV Evangelists because Pat Robertson has routinely spoken in a most un-Christian manner. Imagine -Christo-Facist? Bapto-Facists? Biblo-facists?

The list is endless of Republican counterparts that words are carried by C-Span all over the world. Vile words, insulting to Ally Governments and Enemies -without distinction. With a strong push to limit the Democratic upsurge in the next election cycle, the Republicans have stepped up their offensive language. It’s as offensive to at least half of the American population as it is to the world.

We’ve listened to McCain assert that those opposing the Iraq Occupation are cowards; regularly hear speeches where Dick Cheney simply makes stuff up, and the President of the United States actually unaware of the serious situation with the economy, insisting that we are not in a recession – as though his will were enough to make it so. But all these comments are punctuated with Islamist, Islamo, Islamish – or any other nearly unpronounceable prefix for terrorism, facism, extremism and killersism. It has gotten so awful that friends of The Almost Daily Binx have reported canceling business trips because they fear our Government has put every American at unnecessarily increased risk. They’ve also pitted Americans against Americans and created a dichotomy in the country that is unprecedented, unproductive and openly vicious.

GOP Will Suffer if McCain, Romney or Huckabee Represent the Brand

Truly, there’s no hope for the GOP in its present form. Many Republicans that we’ve been flagnotrepubtalking to have openly expressed that the GOP has no appeal to them any longer. It essentially started with Gingrich’s conflation of history and ideology. Tom Delay was an anomaly that has most career politicians unwilling to talk. Where do guys like Chuck Hagel go? How about Olympia Snowe? Reasonable politicians that didn’t subscribe to the extremist views of the insurrection that performed the coup in the GOP. They’ll get their party back, when the Jack Kingstons, the Peter Kings, the Norm Colemans, the Ted Stevens, the James Inhofes and Mitch McConnells are gone to start. This is only a partial list – but they certainly have their work cut out for them. Apparently, the panic is starting to spread – be on the lookout for very drastic measures from the GOP.
