Weinergate

I watched the press conference yesterday, and the subsequent coverage and recapping of the press conference.

Andrew Breitbart, the conservative blogger who broke the story, was crowing because he actually got this story right. As Stephen Colbert pointed out last night, that makes Breitbart correct in 1 of the 4 big stories he has broken. (The others: NPR, ACORN, and Shirley Sherrod were incredibly dishonestly presented). Don't scoff. Breitbart's now batting .250. That's good enough to start at any position for the Cubs this year.

But to me, the one show I wanted to see handle the subject was Eliot Spitzer's show on CNN (for obvious reasons). Here's how that went.

Spitzer said the press conference was "cringe worthy" (which of course it was), but added something none of us could have added: "Believe me, I know. I've been there."
