'Monday Can't Come Soon Enough'

His best 'Popeye' imitation...

Liz Benjamin blogs: former Assembly Minority Leader John Faso, the Republican who was outspent and summarily trounced by Gov. Eliot Spitzer in the 2006 election, did not go so far as to say "I told you so," but did point out that he brought up issues of Spitzer's character during the campaign - but no one wanted to listen.

Faso expressed sadness for Spitzer's family and called the scandal "a tremendous disappointment" for the state. He insisted he does not feel vindicated in any way, but added: "Monday can't come soon enough."

Bye Bye, Eliot! VIDEO... Michelle Malkin reacted to to the Spitzer statement: "The words did not match his still-defiant attitude. The continued emphasis on “private failings.” The continued lack of humility. The continued emphasis on his commitment to the “public good.” He’d best serve the “public good” by staying out of the public eye and quit his do-gooder crusading."

A commenter on HotAir noted "He acted like all he did was steal a few cookies out of the cookie jar. And I can’t believe his wife stood there by his side again like a Stepford wife.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
