Brace yourself ... it's going to be an exciting news day.
In breaking news, conservatives everywhere took time off from minimizing a teen-stalking Republican pedophile to point out in no uncertain terms that a Democrat involved in prostitution is completely unfit for office.
In other news, it's still not clear if pastors involved with meth and gay sex should be sat down for a stern talking to.
UMMMMMMM ... OK, I'm a bit baffled. The blaring headline at CNN reads, "Gov. Spitzer tells advisers he was involved in prostitution ring." My first reaction to that was, "Holy shit, the governor of New York was running a stable of hookers!"
But other news clips are not quite so dramatic, and suggest that he only purchased the services of prostitutes, which is still entirely unacceptable and grounds for immediate resignation, but it's not quite the same as the impression you get from being told that he was "involved" in a "prostitution ring."
At times like this, it behooves one to choose his or her words carefully, wouldn't you say, Raphael?
