‘Eliot Spitzer, What Are You Thinking?’

By

We don’t know what Liz Claman of Fox Business Network said to Eliot Spitzer to get him on her show last night, but it probably wasn’t, “Let me spend fifteen minutes or so pouring scalding wax on your nether regions — verbally, I mean,” which is basically what she did, starting with her opening line:

First of all, I’m sitting here thinking this is a little unbelievable. Eliot Spitzer, after this unbelievable fall from grace a year and several months ago, and here you are back out again. Why are you doing this?


I mean, what are you THINKING? How can you SHOW YOUR FACE when all everyone thinks is hookers hookers hookers prosties black socks penis penis?” Awkward.

She didn’t say exactly that, but she may as well have.

From the transcript sent to us by FBN:


We actually started feeling bad for Spitzer, who held it together, corrected her during the multiple times she got basic facts wrong, and even managed to get in a little dig when talking about how normal, non–Fox Business News people react when they run into him: “There’s a goodness to people that is remarkable. Other than the media, people understand that we are all working hard to do our best.” Subtle! After the cameras went off, though, we imagine he ripped off his mike and exploded in a string of expletives.
