Ode To Eliot Spitzer

What does Spitzer’s downfall prove?  That you don’t have to be a Republican to be a hypocrite.

Eliot Spitzer deserves a limerick, don’t you think?

Ode To Eliot Spitzer
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Though Spitzer has said he abhors
Prostitution, he paid to use whores.
And one of his cons
Was he punished the johns
While committing their crime on all fours.[tags]Spitzer Hypocrisy, Prostitution Laws, Eliot Spitzer Downfall, Legal Satire, Law Humor, Elliot Spitzer, New York State Humor[/tags]

  4. […] Now, the big news out there is that Eliot Spitzer is governor of New York no more. And where to start? There’s some concern about the use of photos from MySpace; Balkinization imagines a future Supreme Court decision on this topic, Eric Turkewitz makes a connection with medical-legal issues, Scott Greenfield wonders what next, and some commenters have even been talking about the money. The wonderful ‘recovering lawyer’ and comedian Madeleine Begun Kane even commemorated the events with a limerick! And what if he seeks forgiveness? […]

    how’s this. battle of the limericks!

    There once was a governor named Spitzer
    His call girl, he couldn’t resist her
    Until he got canned
    Doing something he banned
    Now I’m sure sex with his wife doesn’t exist, sir.

    Spitzer’s fate? it could not be much worse:
    His political corpse in a hearse.
    But the cause? Not the imp,
    But the Street, and the Chimp
    (And his spies) of the bloody perverse!

[…] The ever-witty Madeleine Begun Kane of Mad Kane’s Political Madness regales us with An Ode to Eliot Spitzer, whilst Therapydoc of Everyone Needs Therapy in What Would Freud Say: Eliot Spitzer presents us with a mischievous, Sigmund-for-Dummies-style dissection of the disgraced sleaze-buster’s drives and motives.  Here is but a brief sample: “The pundits keep saying, when they talk about Eliot Spitzer, the governor of New York, recently indicted for soliciting the services of a high-priced prostitute, […]

  10. […] It’s a shame when the news cycle grinds on before we can catch all the satiric poetry from Madeleine Begun Kane. Still, her Ode To Eliot Spitzer is not to be missed. […]

  12. […] The first submission I got for the carnival made me giggle, so I figured it was a good thing to kick off with. Madeleine Begun Kane presents Ode To Eliot Spitzer posted at Mad Kane’s Political Madness. At the same blog, and in the same vein, An Ode To Lefty Bloggers Who Hate Hillary Clinton and Ode To Randi “Queen of Obscene” Rhodes, both of which should raise a giggle and have you nodding your head in agreement.
