Spitzer: How Will The "New Type Of Politics" Handle This?

Posted: Updated:

It's 2.25pm EDT on Monday March 10, 2008

The New York Times has broken the Spitzer prostitution story. Other media are all over it.

I wonder how long it will take for standard-issue photographs of Spitzer and Hillary Clinton attending the same events - of which there must inevitably be many - start getting posted all over the blogosphere? Even though those photos will have zero to do with the case. Even though Hillary Clinton will have nothing to do with the story.

Of course as we are now in the age of the "New Type Of Politics" - there won't be any posted.

Right?

Right!
