The Top 10 list didn't take long:

Top Ten Eliot Spitzer ExcusesTop Ten

Oh come on, like you were never involved in a prostitution ring

Hookers is fun

Just trying to help the economy

Have you ever been to Albany?

It's part of my new MTV prank show "Spitz'd"

Haven't been myself since Roy Schieder died

Uh, tainted beef?

Whether it's a hooker or your wife, you're always paying for it -- you married fellas know what I'm talking about

Wanted to be known as the Charlie Sheen of politics

I thought Bill Clinton legalized this years ago

Exactly. JFK allegedly had tyrsts with Marilyn Monroe, Angie Dickenson and a long affair with this beauty Judith Campbell Exner




Considering how elegant and classy Jackie O was I think he still showed really bad judgement, but I could understand.

Bill Clinton and Monica I don't get it.


For the money Spitzer spent, and considering that is Silda Spitzer is smart (Harvard Law and high powered lawyer in her own right) and good looking, the hooker better look like a supermodel.

that was a lead in..and you missed it. 2 demerits!

a hint - there is not enough blood in the body to operate two major organs at the same time. we'll coin a new phrase -the "Spitzer Effect"

Name the organs...

Adultery = ridiculous standard? I have to say you lost me there.

Marquette - would you please grace us with one of your senryū creations ?

As a native New Yorker, I'd be very honored if you would dedicate it to Governor Elliot Spitzer.

While I agree with you that prositiution should be legal, he did wrong (1) committing adultery, and (2) committing a crime which as Attorney General he had prosecuted others for.

First, two one-liners... not original and I'm sure they've already been done, but it came to me while I was washing the dishes...


-------------

You can't be too tough on Spitzer. After all, one of his promises was that he was going to get hard on crime.

-------------

The prostitute came forward today and made a plea for Spitzer. She said to be lenient with him because he's already done lots of hard time

Limerick:

There once was a governor from albany
Who liked to pay women to watch them pee
But then he got busted
The public disgusted
Now he's left with just Internet pornography

Limerick:

This is the tale of Elliot Spitz
A straight-shooting man who knew how to blitz
He went one hooker to far
Got caught in his car
His only hope is that the prosecution acquits

What he did wrong was fail to live up to his own publicly announced standard. Where I come from that's called hypocrisy.

So, I've been thinking about this while making dinner...

democrat president has affair with intern; wife gets senate seat and shot at white house

democrat governor pays for hooker. I'm thinking we're looking at the next congresswoman from new york.

Oh, and I have a confession to make. The first time I heard this story, the first thought I had was "I wonder if he paid her with a variable annuity".
