Eliot Spitzer: Day One With Sanjaya, Everything Changed

Further scenes from Saturday's White House Correspondent's Dinner:

Sanjaya Malakar, the shy, slender, 17-year-old "American Idol" reject, was at his table when a tall, middle-aged man stopped by to ask for an autograph. The boy's hosts, from People magazine, tried to shoo him away.
"We are trying to let him eat," they explained.
The man protested: "But I'm the governor of New York."
And so Eliot Spitzer got his autograph.

And this is how it ends: One day you're "the fucking steamroller," the next you're some poor schmuck reduced to begging People flacks for access to this year's version of William Hung. Oh, Eliot. We liked you so much better before Shelly Silver took your balls away.
