ok, more than one word. first of all, with my usual naivete i am utterly disappointed. i voted for this guy when i lived in nyc and he was making his way up. i like to believe in people who are anti-corruption. which makes it all the more depressing when they are caught out.
an interesting piece in the tv section of the ny times by alessandra stanley. she dissects her own assertion that men and women respond differently to sex scandals. a couple of bits that caught my eye:
"“Are you saying the women should feel guilty, like they somehow drove the man to cheat?” a visibly aghast Meredith Vieira of “Today” asked Dr. Laura Schlessinger, a radio host. Dr. Schlessinger replied, “Yes, I hold women accountable for tossing out perfectly good men by not treating them with the love and kindness and respect and attention they need.”"
aaaaargh dr laura! say no more!!
then there is david letterman's monologue from last night:
"“Holy cow,” Mr. Letterman said. “We can’t get bin Laden, but we got Spitzer.”"
