Eliot Spitzer is a man. And far be it from me to say that is a good thing. We actually don't know but assume he has behaved badly toward his wife. However, on the other hand, doing the wild thing with a prostitute doesn't screw over the people of New York. Right? So why is the media demanding his head? Is any real person doing so (excluding of course TV talking heads and politicians)??
Let's get real about this: the media is demanding that the results of the 2006 New York governor's election be revoked because Eliot Spitzer had sex with a prostitute. Just like they demanded that the 1996 presidential election results be revoked because Bill Clinton got a blow job from Monica Lewinsky.

I'm not the biggest fan of Hillary Clinton. Do I think she'll end up the Democratic candidate? Yeah. Will I support her if she does? Hell yeah. But am I excited about the possibility of Hillary as Prez? Let's just say I'm about as excited over the idea as I was over a Kerry presidency - better than what we have but not particularly exciting.
I have to admit, however, that some of the sexism that has been directed Hillary's way is really starting to piss me off. You don't have to look very far to find blatant examples - check just about any mass media story. In fact, you know things are going a little too far when even the wingnuts are starting to tire of the same sexist drivel.
