All choked up

By Michael J.W. Stickings

It doesn't look good, Eliot Spitzer. It doesn't look good.

Each to his own, I suppose, much of the time... but choking women? Sure, it may have been a playing of roles, but did the women know that? Do you not think that they might not have appreciated your little power games? That they might have thought they were in danger, that you were going too far? And you probably did, and yet you seem to get off on pushing others around, on abusing others. Charming.

And what does it say about you that you supposedly responded to allegations that you were being overly "rough and aggressive" by telling the madam who supplied you with the high-priced women you abused, playfully or not, to define "rough and aggressive"? Nothing good.

Now, I realize that all this is being reported in a gossip column in the New York Daily News, hardly a bastion of high-mindedness, and that Madam Kristin Davis and "Annie" may not be the most credible sources. Furthermore, I realize that your lawyer has already called the claim "outrageous and defamatory." Maybe they are.

But you just don't have all that much credibility yourself, do you?
