Evidently Randy Tobias resigned yesterday because he knew he was going to get the truly rotten publicity of showing up on a list of call girl clients. That’™s old news. As it is old news that Ms. Palfrey has threatened to expose the contents of her entire client list. I suppose I knew she might want to depose those clients, then have them testify at her trial. Somehow the image of those depositions and later trial testimony hadn’™t sunk in until this morning.

It is Ms. Palfrey’™s defense strategy that is now causing the biggest stir.

She not only intends to identify more of her high-profile clients, but has also threatened to call them as witnesses at trial to back up her claim that the services provided never crossed the line to prostitution.

I just have this image in my head that George Bush’™s stupid nicknames for his staffers relate to their activities with those prostitutes. Of course, ‘œturd blossom’ describes no sex act I’™d like to contemplate. But the whole thing makes me giggle. There’™s a funny idea here, like a George Bush nickname generator based on slangy sex trade terms, or something like that.

The guarantee here? Tobias is not the last one to resign in disgrace.
