Politicians Make Bad Bedfellow Choices
Obviously, the Internet is full of people talking about NY Governor Eliot Spitzer and his inability to keep his pants zipped. I read a great post over at If I Ran the Zoo along with one by Lance Mannion, too. It made me want to write a bit about the subject myself.
My first thought is that if I were his wife, I would be pissed about how much money he spent. Don't they have three daughters to cloth, feed and educate? What message is he sending to his three daughters? (I am sure that when we was getting serviced, he didn't think about them.) How do they feel having to go to school or anywhere else for that matter?
As Steve, pointed out there was no IF in Spitzer's statement, no real apology either. It should be about ideas he says. Yes, well, it should be, but it is more than that. He transported money and a hooker across state lines which is a felony. He is guilty, he should resign and pay for his crime.
Mr. Spitzer, you cannot be perceived at righteous, tilting at windmills and chasing down the flaws at everyone else and not expect to have people out to get you. You have chased after some of the most powerful men in the US, did you honestly think that they would not lie in wait for you?
Please, they were wishing and hoping and praying for you to make a mistake. You did, you made a big one. You got caught, don't be surprised, take it like a man.

He might see himself one way, but everyone else disagrees. What a disappointing fool!

Rumor has it that he's resigning today. Now if we could only get the Mayor of Detroit to follow suit.
