Best Wishes on Your Scandal!

posted by on March 10 at 15:29 PM

Hillary Clinton’s statement on the Spitzer prostitute troubles:

“I don’t have any comment on that, but I obviously am sending, you know, my best wishes and thoughts to the governor and to his family,” she said.

When asked whether she thought the beleaguered governor could survive the scandal, the senator declined to comment.

“Let’s wait and see what comes out over the next days, but right now I don’t have any comment, and I think it’s appropriate just to wish his family well, and we’ll wait and see how things develop,” she said.

At least Bill didn't have to pay for it.

Bill only paid for the cigar.

Spitzer probably didn't have to pay, either. Sure, he was funny-looking, but the guy was a prominent governor, and a rock star in certain quarters.

Best wishes?!

How gauche. One offers "Congratulations" to the john and his family.

Has Hallmark started a line of cards to mark this yet?

Against the darkness, I light a candle/
Wishing you the best in this latest scandal.

I feel sorry for the children in all of these familes.

Maybe Bill Clinton will be client #10.

Crap, that reminds me. I forgot to mail my "Best wishes on losing the Democratic nomination" card. And I bet I'm out of stamps too...

This should keep Rezko out of the news cycle, for a while.

umvue @4, i agree. "my sympathies go out..." is much more appropriate in this circumstance than "best wishes"--gah! or maybe "i feel the family's pain" would be good. yeah, that's the right sound byte.

On the other hand, Bill had to be the thoughtful, Walt-Whitman-books-of-poetry-buying lover of a chubby adolescent who poured her heart out to the likes of Linda Tripp, and who saved his semen stains. It's a hard call.

This is marvelous. Simply marvelous.

@5 That's funny.

Why even make this post? What is Hillary Clinton supposed to say? It has nothing to do with her.

What did Barrack Obama say?

I just think he's got the perfect last name for a guy with a taste for hookers.

What would you like her to say? "Can't men keep their dick in their pants"?

Posted by Vince | March 11, 2008 8:22 AM

Senator Hillary Clinton of New York?

Wouldn't it be great if she took a toy-boy? I would really relish that.
