Captain Bubba and the Spitzer Space Vixens

by lestro

Richard Russo gives Eliot Spitzer the Law and Order treatment:

My fictional Eliot would be complex, would contain paradoxes. He would not be a hypocrite. My Eliot would believe with his whole heart in his crusades against the corrupt and the powerful and the privileged, even as he worked studiously to undermine his legacy. Fiction can accommodate such paradoxes, provided they’re explained.

It has everything: Sex, money, power, stunning hypocrisy, flawed leading character AND a high-class call girl with big time music industry dreams and a history of abuse. Shit, someone call Tom Wolfe quick before Russo writes it.

but more likely I expect an actual Law and Order episode (special victims unit, maybe) to already be in the works based on this sordid little tale…

it will probably be a two-hour special.

I’d rather see Star Trek handle it… because if Star Trek adapted it, it might look something like this:

I watched an episode on saturday in which beings with great powers disguised themselves as humans and took over the ship and the crew realized that they didn’t understand their human emotions and feelings and had to distract them so Kirk went about trying to seduce the blond woman who was really a 100-foot-long multi-tentacled alien. gotta love that guy.

it’s like if Bubba were a starship captain.

and the ‘beings with great powers’ are apparently kelvans and hidden tentacles or not, it’s tough to blame him…

there is just something about green-skinned alien slave girls that really works for the Spitzer story…
