Spitzer: cold feet not an option

sock

So, it turns out somebody working for Republican operative Roger Stone dropped a dime on Elliot Spitzer. Or, more accurately, dropped an email to the FBI. Stone got his information from ”a social contact in an adult-themed club.”

Per the Wikipedia entry, Stone is the one who organized the so-called “Brooks Brothers riot” — remember all those dudes in natty suits hammering on the doors where the Florida recount was happening? That thing. He recently founded an anti–Hillary Clinton 527 called Citizens United Not Timid, acronym intentional.

The thumbnail biography makes him sound a bit of nutter, actually.

Anyhow, there’s old bad blood between him and Spitzer, apparently. Chris Matthews accused Stone on-air of leaving a threatening message on Spitzer’s dad’s answering machine, referring to the former as your “phony, psycho, piece-of-shit son.”

I don’t find the story all that interesting, but I could not possibly walk past this datum:

“It is also my client’s understanding from the same source that Gov. Spitzer did not remove his mid-calf length black socks during the sex act. Perhaps you can use this detail to corroborate Mr. Stone’s information.”

It’s those little details that breathe life into a drama, you know?

Interesting. Maybe that’s why she charged so much, because of those ugly socks.

It’s just one (two) less apparel item that has to be put back on, I guess.

But I find it difficult to believe he didn’t have an overwhelming desire to bathe (like for about a week) after the fact.

What about her? I mean, have you looked at Spitzer’s face? He looks like something participating in a satanic ritual. I get the same creepy feeling looking into the eyes of a goat that I do looking at Spitzer. But a goat in dark socks seems more charming. Brrr…

I really didn’t need that mental image on a Monday. I’m conflicted about Stone however… I think the acronym is tasteless and makes him look stupid, but the phone message turns out to be exactly right. I thought it was the banks that initially generated the suspicions? It looks like the FBI contacted Stone after they had started to investigate already. He’s taking more credit for helping than I think he’s actually due.

Of course that thumbnail bio makes him sound like a nutter. Isn’t Wiki run by liberal nutters?
Where do I contribute $$ to CUNT? That is brilliant (I dislike her that much).
Also, where is the guy going wrong when referring to goat boy as “phony, psycho, piece-of-shit son.” Sounds accurate.

It’s those little details that breathe life into a drama, you know?

The devil is always in the details. That’s how you judge just exactly what kind of punk a Spitzer is.

Stashiu3 –
I thought the FBI found out via the banks too.

Yeah, sorry, but I love that acronym. I’m a degenerate lowlife – no point trying to pretend otherwise.
It’s like that organisation in the game Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories – Citizens United Negating Technology For Life And People’s Safety.

I’d like to believe I’m a degenerate also, Gibby. Lord knows I’ve tried to be. Sometimes I fail, but I just climb back on that horse and let ‘er buck away again.

It’s a gift.

Yer poim is beautimus, Gibby.

Weaz – I hope you saw Ace’s link to Conservative Belle’s tribute to Moronbloggers!

You have NO IDEA how pleased I was to see ol’ billy there. It’s official now, m’lady. (I think it’s been official for a long time). No backing out now.

I like this sign (I NEED this sign). And Mesa’s right, at least ick-factor 11. I love Gibby’s song, too.

I need some socks like that. Whenever I wear dress socks at the end of the day my feet stink and I wish my legs were longer.

I’m the same way. I once started calling housekeeping at a Vegas hotel I’d just checked in to, to complain that something stunk horrid in the ventilation. My wife stopped me and pointed to my feet.

Sometimes, 6’2″ is way too short.

Man, McGoo…I go offline for a few days and all hell breaks loose. I got a email from Ace and everything.

And here I thought the catsophone was my ticket to fame.

Funny that, Cuffy: I just fired up Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City for the first time this morning, while I was waiting for the cable guy (cablemodem was dead — I’m back online now!).

I’m loving driving around Liberty City listening to the radio.

McG, it’s that Joe Cocker/Tom Jones song ‘You Can Leave Your Hat On’, not poetry. Or maybe song lyrics do class as poetry. I wouldn’t know. You and Lokki (say, what ever happened to him/her anywho?) are the poetry experts in the Moronosphere.
Weas, GTA III on the PS2, right? Or GTA: Liberty City Stories on the PSP or PS2? The Citizens United Negating Technology For Life And People’s Safety (CUNTFLAPS) is in the latter.
Anyway, yeah, the radio station make those games.

PSP. I bought myself one as a cheer-up-weasel present a few weeks ago. I meant to blog it, but I haven’t gotten around to it. I got GTA, some shoot-em-up and Patapon, which is a kind of a kick.

Anyway, I hadn’t fired up GTA until today. It’s hilarious. It’s like being King Sociopath of Crimeville. I can see why moms of America hate this one…

Yeah, I love my PSP. It’s essentially a PS2 in the palm of yer hand. Did you get the new slim bugger? I’ve got one of the old ‘fat’ ones, though to be honest it’s still king of small and thin.
Here’s a site you may want to look at if you want to get into the whole homebrew thing:

Hey, neat. That link doesn’t get me the big red hand (probably because it’s .co.uk).

I don’t know if mine’s slim or fat. I’ve never seen anyone else’s (if you know what I mean).

About the song ‘You Can Leave Your Hat On’ – Joe Cocker and Tom Jones did a version of it, but it was acually written by Randy Newman in 2001. Etta James did a great live version of it in 2002, and of course, it became a big hit because of the movie The Full Monty.

Not that this is relevant or anything, but I didn’t want y’all to forget that I’m alive. I just lurk-a-lot.
