Which is the bigger story?

Ah, the good ol' New York Times. The same newspaper that printed innuendo after innuendo regarding Senator John McCain and a "female lobbyist" has now decided to apparently even the score by informing the world that New York Governor Eliot Spitzer paid thousands of dollars for the "services" of a high-end prostitute last month.

After the dust settled, no evidence revealed that McCain did anything untoward or morally sinister with said lobbyist, Iseman. Unfortunately for the Times, end of story, and the world moved on.

Now the worm has turned. Across the proverbial party aisle, Governor Spitzer, a "crusading [democratic] politician who built his career on rooting out corruption" now finds himself in the position of having to apologize to his family, his constituents, and to the world for behavior much worse than having dinner with a pretty lobbyist.

So, I guess all that drama the Times craved has now packaged itself in a pretty ribbon and landed on their doorstep. The only problem is, it's centered around a high-ranking member of the wrong party.

Be careful what you wish for, right? Karma can be a real bitch.
