Spitzer, hookers and a brand new book

Spitzer_2 Associated Press reports that the Penguin Group is publishing a book on the rise and fall (insert $5,000-a-pop hooker joke here) on former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer. The book will be written by an author who knows a bit  about rises and falls: Peter Elkind, senior writer for Fortune magazine and co-author of the 2003 bestseller Enron: The Smartest Guys In the Room. His collaborator? Filmmaker Alex Gibney, who made the documentary based on Elkind's book. The pair will also collaborate on a film on Spitzer.

There really are just so many jokes here I don't know where to begin. I'd solicit guesses at the title but it really is far too obvious to even use the word "solicit" here.

No word on when the book will be released.

Skip the book, go right to the movie. And who should play Spitzer? The answer is obvious.



Ha ha ha! ESpitzer wishes!

Then again, Robert Redford played Bob Woodward, so all things are possible (except of course this is a documentary...I guess that means we get Girls Gone Wild! footage)

Five words: "Nicole Kidman as Virginia Woolf."
