The Honey Trap

The story of Governor Spitzer's downfall has all the features that make American journalism the marvel of the modern world. We do it better than anybody else.

Eliot got caught, and good. A sting by the surveillance state has nailed a card carrying member of the same fraternity. Karl Rove's magic still rules the realm.

As the NYT says in a big online headline:
Spitzer Is Linked to a Sex Ring as Client

Sex Rings are new to me, but I guess we'll be told what they're all about. I hope it doesn't involve piercing.

As for the morality, cryptogon nails it:
Elite deviance is par for the course in these circles. The remarkable thing here is that the activity involved an adult woman.
