Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.
- President Dwight D. Eisenhower

David Paterson

He is a black man. He is a a blind man. He will be the governor of the state of New York.

Well, Spitzy-boy has called in his chips. He's leaving the executive mansion in a cloud of scandal, and if he's lucky, he'll get a closeted libertarian on his jury, and beat all of the prostitution and money laundering charges. Of course, these days, the only people that get on juries are people too dumb to figure out a valid reason to get off of jury duty. Indeed, the people that WANT to be on juries are excused by either the defense or the prosecution.

Smart, engaged people are harder to sway.

Spitzy-boy is screwed.

This guy was sleeping with prostitutes for TEN YEARS. Wouldn't it have been easier (and way more legal) just to have had a few girlfriends?
