The cutie and comeuppance

The 'Net's been filled with stories over the last few days about now-former New York governor Eliot Spitzer's imbroglio with a top-dollar call girl (pictured) and his subsequent resignation. I don't really have much to add except that it's really sweet watching this poster boy for hypocrisy, one who has put so many people behind bars as a prosecutor for breaking what are often unconstitutional laws in the first place, twist in the wind. I can only hope that if it is proven that he used public monies for his trysts, he will spend time in prison with some of those same folks he helped put there. I won't go so far as to say that if this comes to pass that I hope he is violated sexually while in the pokey, no doubt as some of his victims have been, but that would be poetic justice.

This is the type of behavior and arrogance you get, folks, when government is peopled with career bureacrats/politicians.

Take care.
