When Democrats Go Wild

Spitzer redefines hypocrite and coward
NY Gov guilty of crimes against the family

When the news surfaced Monday that New York governor Eliot Spitzer was named "client #9" in a federal probe of a prostitution ring, shock was felt throughout the political landscape. The father of three teenage girls, once viewed as a crusader against political corruption and a future presidential hopeful, can only watch as his reputation and political future fall apart because of his own disregard for the law and an addiction to high-priced hookers.

As you are well aware, your brilliant blogger usually doesn't care about the private lives of politicians or any public figure. Spitzer is a different story. As a two term attorney general he made his reputation fighting political corruption and ironically prostitution rings. His arrogance was obvious from day-one, but that plays well in a state filled with big ego's. He referred to himself as a "steamroller," when he was attorney general, fighting corruption in Albany and on Wall Street. His whore mongering as governor redefines the word hypocrite. His name now synonymous with the word.

Making matters worse is the shame he has brought to his family, especially his wife Silda who he has pimped out to appear at his side during press conferences. As Chicago Tribune columnist John Kass wrote, "did New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer have to drag his wife, Silda Wall Spitzer, up there, in her pearls and powder blue Chanel jacket like some prop to be shamed? Did he have to parade her before the cameras, so lovely and tired, disgraced and betrayed, for all to see?"

The question is valid and the observation is spot on. If you looked up the word 'humiliation' in the dictionary, her photo would appear. It's obvious she hasn't slept in days or stopped crying. So why did Spitzer drag his wife in front of reporters not once, but twice while addressing the prostitution matters?

Spitzer's demeanor says it all. He doesn't appear ashamed or admits that he did anything wrong. He apologies to what his family has endured and disappointing the public. At the same time his wife stands at his side looking like she should be placed under a suicide watch. Any man who puts his family through such horrors and uses them to make himself look better can only be described as a coward. That word shows Spitzer's face in the dictionary.

One thing that your brilliant blogger knows is that the soon to be former NY Governor believes that he will be back. Deep down he doesn't believe he did anything wrong. Men such as Spitzer believe the laws do not apply to people such as him. He is in fact above the law. He believes he can make a deal with the Feds that will keep him out of jail and have the charges reduced to a misdemeanor. He may be right.

In his mind this will justify his return to greatness. That is where he is wrong.

Ferraro comments comical and sad
84 VP candidate playing the gender card

Who would of ever though that a presidential primary race could last so long and be so entertaining? I don't think anyone did. However everyday I check the news with the same excitement as a child checking under the tree on Christmas morning.

This week the big present has been the stupidity and sexism displayed by former Vice Presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro. It turns out that the once pride and joy of the feminist movement believes that if Obama wasn't black or was an African American female he wouldn't be in his current position.

"If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman (of any color) he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept," Ferraro said.

There are certain things that you simply don't say, this is one of them. However, deep down everyone knows there is some truth to her comments. Would Obama been given the opportunity to give the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in 2004 if he was a white State Senator running for the U.S. Senate. Of course not. He is where he is today because of that speech.

As a senator from Illinois he has accomplished almost nothing. His offers no ideas and definitely no solutions as Hillary likes to point out. However he is young, attractive, black and a great speaker. That is why he is the Democratic front runner. His race plays a significant role in his candidacy and that is a fact.

What Ferraro is undoubtedly wrong about is the gender issue. If Obama was a female he would still be the front runner and in fact would have decimated Clinton before Super Tuesday. This notion that woman are discriminated more than blacks is ludicrous. I find is amazing how the feminist movement supposedly fights for equality and when it is granted to them they claim that evil men are being to hard on the poor little lady or beating up the female when they are confronted with the same scrutiny as their male counterparts.

Feminist icon Gloria Steinem's op-ed in the New York Times back in January is a disturbing display of playing the victim and her historic disdain for men and America. Has it occurred to the feminists of the world that Clinton being a woman is not her problem. In fact is she was a man she wouldn't have a political career.

Clinton is viewed by many woman as this great role model because of how she handled her husbands infidelity, especially the Lewinsky scandal. Your brilliant blogger, most men and many woman view her as a sap or doormat that stayed with a scoundrel to help her future political endeavors. Some how allowing a man to walk all over you is what the modern day feminist movement deems respectable. Go figure.

The fact is that in a large part Obama is where he is because of his race and Clinton because of her gender. News Flash people: The Democratic Party and their voters tend to discriminate against White Christian Men.

Think about it. John Edwards was great looking, a good speaker, stood by a wife with cancer and had an endless list of solutions (all disastrous). However he was white and Christian. Where is he today? Exactly.

Ferraro's comments weren't far off. They were just unacceptable in a political Party that places political correctness in front of the truth.
