New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer became the butt of jokes faster than, well, faster than it would take a prostitute to ride Amtrak from New York to Washington.
"I sat next to the guy three times and I didn’t pick up on any of this," said Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert, "and I usually have excellent whore-dar."
"It’s just mind-blowing that he spent $4,300 on a hooker," said New York comic Lisa Landry. "It just shows how high the cost of living is in New York. That same hooker would cost $50 in Newark."
"They’re talking about impeaching Eliot Spitzer if he doesn’t step down," David Letterman said, "and I’m thinking, ‘Whoa, a Democrat being impeached for extramarital sex. Well, happy days are here again!"
For the second day in a row, Spitzer was the topic of Letterman’s top-10 list. This time, it was "messages left on Eliot Spitzer’s answering machine."
No. 1: "It’s Arnold Schwarzenegger. Thanks. I’m no longer America’s creepiest governor."
Spitzer, accused of being the prostitution ring’s so-called Client 9, was Topic 1 again with late-night comics Tuesday. "Not surprisingly, clients 1 through 8 were Charlie Sheen," NBC’s "Late Night" host Conan O’Brien cracked.
