Now Eliot Spitzer Wants To Make A Comeback

Former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer – who resigned from office in disgrace more than five years ago after he was busted paying prostitutes for sex – is the latest politician to attempt a political comeback.

The 54-year-old Democrat announced his intention to run as Comptroller of New York City this week, following in the footsteps of disgraced politicians Anthony Weiner (the former U.S. Representative who’s running for mayor of New York) and Mark Sanford (the former South Carolina governor who was recently elected in a special congressional election in the Palmetto State).

“I love public service,” Spitzer told The New York Daily News. “I believe in it and hope I will be given a second chance. After being out of office for five years, thinking deeply, reflecting on what I was able to do when I was in government … I’m going to try and seek the controller’s office and ask to the public to consider me.”

Hmmmm …

Look … we have no problem with prostitution. And have said so. Like everybody else, we believe governors should be free to purchase sex if they so desire.

Here’s the thing, though. Spitzer was a two-term New York attorney general who aggressively prosecuted prostitution – in fact he went so far as to attempt a crackdown on American companies that booked tours to prostitution-friendly foreign locales.

And that’s where our problem with Spitzer lies … his hypocrisy.

Anyway … all of this is really just an excuse to link back to pictures of Ashley Dupre, the $5,000-a-night hooker who brought Spitzer down. So yeah, here ya go …

Cumbucket

A vessel, typically made of stone, occasionally of hammered bronze, used to capture male ejaculate. Cumbuckets are commonly found in Mesopotamia, or present-day Iraq.

Thousands of years ago men would gather round communal cumbuckets and engage in a circle jerk as part of a religious ceremony. Once a bucket was filled with male ejaculate a female virgin would be drowned in it, and then consumed in a celebratory feast.

This practice has begun to fade in recent years, and cumbuckets have all but disappeared outside of college fraternities.

1. The Smithsonian has a new display of cumbuckets recently unearthed in Iraq.

2. I got gay drunk at a frat party and circle jerked into a cumbucket.

“And that’s where our problem with Spitzer lies … his hypocrisy.”

A familiar website championed our own SC love gov., breaking a nasty story 2 days before his SC1 election.

I’m not at all sure this will work unless he becomes a Jew for Jesus…but then again NY, NY is not exactly the Bible belt as the revived Wiener has demonstrated.

“I love pubic service” Spitzer? Wasn’t that CNN show his “second chance?” I guess he gets a pass on that as Sanford’s Fox gig was also a big nothing.

Dude looks like a goblin in that picture.

Sanford is like the sex affair Jesus; he was crucified by the media and rose again, and now anyone can be born again. Indecent exposure? Sex with a minor? Soliciting a prostitute? Sending pictures of your ding dong? Skipping town to see your mistress? Behold the mercy of political career salvation! Mark Sanford goes to D.C. to make a place for thee!

Sanford will widely publicize his mandate that his office staff recycle post-it notes and xerox paper but will keep quiet about flying off on your $78,000 dime to sleep with Miss Mango.

King of hypocrites…..Congressman Mark Sanford. Any woman would rather have her husband pay a prostitute than have an eight year affair with the same woman.

Bigger political problem: Like FITS and Sanford, Spitzer is a Silver-Spooned Legacy Pledge, who thinks he’s entitled to our office and our voice…He’s never had to make it on his on…and he is accustomed to a phat gov’t paycheck throughout times in his life…

At least Sanford is on our side, politcally, which is the only reason he has any value. Hopefully he’ll realize he is nothing, despite his daddy’s money, w/o the support of the people who DID Build it…

Spitzer and FITS are on the side of the bitter, Obama-takers, and are worthless…

Berlusconi Mulls New York Race

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report) — In a stunning bid for a political comeback, former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi said today that he was considering running for office in New York City.

Mr. Berlusconi announced his intentions after several local polls showed him with a higher approval rating than the candidates currently on offer in the city.

For the disgraced former Prime Minister, the chance to start over again in New York is “like a dream come true.”

“In Italy, you make one little mistake, they throw you in jail seven years,” he said. “New Yorkers are much more forgiving.”

Mr. Berlusconi said that he had not yet decided what office to run for, but was leaning toward public advocate.

“Once they see how good Silvio does at that, they make him mayor or governor, no?” he said, with a booming laugh.

Mr. Berlusconi said that he was unconcerned by rumors of a possible bid for office in New York by another former European politician, Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

“Just let him try,” he said. “Do I look worried? I am not worried. I walk down street, people tell me thumbs up. New York loves Silvio.”
