"The Wire" ends; real-life drama begins

The Wire's finale aired last night, but now a real-life wiretap drama looks to be just as interesting.

New York Governor Eliot Spitzer has been "caught on a federal wiretap arranging to meet with a high-priced prostitute at a Washington hotel last month," the NYTimes reported in a monster scoop this afternoon.

Sex, corruption, politics ... all we're missing is some crack, a lying reporter and maybe a failing school district and we've got the whole show right there!

Or, as New York Magazine succinctly put it:

BREAKING: Eliot Spitzer Completes Tommy Carcetti's Character Arc

As for the story itself, I particularly like this part, from the affidavit against the prostitution ring, filed last week. Lewis is a defendant, Client 9 is reportedly Spitzer.
LEWIS continued that from what she had been told "he (a reference to client 9) would ask you to do things that, like you might not think were safe."

Kristen responded "I have a way of dealing with that. I'd be like listen dude, you really want the sex?"
The rules change, but the Game remains the same...
