For those of you following it, an amusing theatrical turn in the pathetic Roger Stone/Spitzer's dad nasty phone call saga:
Mr. Stone also said in his statement that he had attended a performance of the Broadway play “Frost/Nixon” on the night of the alleged call and could “highly recommend it to Governor Spitzer.” He added, “It shows you what hubris and lying brings you.”
But a blogger for New York magazine pointed out that the play had no Monday night performances.
“Well, then I’m mistaken,” Mr. Stone said later. “My wife already reminded me I actually saw the play on a Wednesday. I still recommend the play to the governor.”
Monday or Wednesday, Roger, it was still a loser alibi. Everyone knows nobody goes to the theatre anymore. At least not to a straight play!By the way, even if there was a Monday show, there's another hole in the story: the intermissionless Frost/Nixon is a shortee and comes down before 10pm, the time of the call.
Oh and if you haven't heard it yet, here it is. A doozy. Can anyone corroborate my theory that Stone is drunk? I swear he slurs the word "senate" at some point...
