The Leftist Mind: A Spritz of Spritzer

Eliot Spitzer, the media anointed Eliot Ness of Wall Street has instead been revealed to be Eliot Mess.

His once stellar career has been brought down by his taste for hookers, and I really feel sorry for his wife and daughters. Trust me I know, my 2nd Wife Vadeela of Flokia Secundus is friends with Xran's 4th ex-wife Zoga, and I remember their little 'venting sessions' echoing through my palace.

But I'm not here to rub salt in the Spitzer family's wounds, that's for the divorce lawyers.

I'm here to talk about how Eliot Spitzer is the perfect leftist.

1. He assumed all who stood against him, were evil. We've all seen it, the default position of leftists is that people who oppose them, are not only wrong, but evil, and act out of some sort of malicious ulterior motive. Ironically, he never thought about the nature of his own motives, since the leftist is usually a solipsist in social-crusader's clothing.

2. The law had nothing to do with justice, but with with his own power. Any serious review of his career as a prosecutor shows tactics and methods that made Mike Nifong look like Perry Mason. They weren't even used to get convictions, but to get Spitzer's face in front of TV cameras. He was also not above using the law, and its officers, to pursue his political enemies on usually specious reasons.

3. The law was for others, but not for him. I was amazed at how many of the settlements he extracted out of corporations involved putting his friends in cushy positions on corporate boards, and landing massive donations to "community groups" that ended up beholden to Spitzer, and supported his election to governor. I also find it interesting that he shut down so many "escort services" while partaking of similar services himself.

4. He claimed to stand for utopia, but he really stood for his own power. All through his legal and political career he promised that he would deliver the promised land, yet all he ended up doing was trying to get more power for himself.

I'd feel sorry for him, especially when his wife's lawyers are through with him, but this is his own petard and he happily hoisted himself on it.

Maybe when everything dies down he can get a job on Wall Street?

Keep watching the skies, because we're watching you.

I feel sorry for his daughters, but not his wife. Allegedly, she was one of the ones urging him to not resign. Typical shark lawyer.
