A new kind of journalist

As the nation's media shed jobs like my cat sheds hair, one news outlet is hiring.

Slate Magazine has just published a column by, get this, horribly disgraced former New York Gov. Eliot "Client 9" Spitzer. It will be a regular feature by the magazine that once published "Eliot Spitzer, Wimp."

It's true, kids. Here's his first column, under the hilarious banner "The Best Policy: Making Government Work Better."

If you are not familiar with Slate or the Spitzer scandal, here is a sample of the magazine's articles:


* "Spitzer Gets Spitzered" where they used this now famous AP photo ...


* "How to Prosecute Eliot Spitzer";


* "Eliot's Wasteland";


* B.S. Eliot;


* "Eliot's Mess";


*
"Tainted Gov," billed as "Slate's complete coverage of the Eliot Spitzer prostitution scandal."


* and the ironically prophetic "Sex Sells."
