“Kristen” Comes Into View

It took about 48 hours.

The New York Times has posted the first interview – complete with pictures, of course – of Kristen aka  Ashley Alexandra Dupré aka Ashley Youmans.

And, to make the momemt oh-so-current, she has a MySpace page. The comments she’s received in the last couple of hours remind me why I’m not all that eager to join the social networking frenzy.

She’ll be on Larry King, the View, Ellen or one of the morning shows before week’s end.

Apologizing Spitzer Style

Governor Spitzer’s just-concluded appearance in which he announced his resignation effective Monday was classic Spitzer…aggressive, to-the-point and blunt. He provided no details of his “failings” as he termed them – clearly has drawn a line that says “we’re not going there” – and also made it clear at several points that he’s removing himself from public life. This, of course, won’t stop the media digging and questioning, but it’s probably the right way for him to handle it.

A tough day for the Governor and the Spitzer family but they’re probably through the worst of it now – assuming he’s come clean to his wife and prepared her for what’s still to be revealed via the media – and assuming there’s no truly horrific twists like he videoed his trysts or there are pictures of him playing some weird form of dress-up.
