Quotes of the day

If Mr. Spitzer wants us to butt out of his private affairs, he should from here on in set an example by butting out of everyone else's private affairs.--Donald J. Boudreaux

Prostitute Admits Link to Elliott Spitzer; Resigns From Escort Service in Disgrace--Radley Balko
Spitzer Swallows?--Economist

From Troopergate to Shtupergate--Suitably Flip
To be sure, we already knew that Eliot Spitzer had no respect for the letter of the law--his signature move was going after people on the basis of moral outrage, rather than, say, violating a statute. But his behavior since he got into governor's office has been, in the deepest sense of the word, scandalous. His use of the state police to prosecute petty political battles, and now his flagrant violations of statutes that he himself used to enforce, seem to indicate that Spitzer thought he had been elected to the position of Third World Dictator. To call him a hypocrite is too kind--he isn't even paying tribute to virtue. If he had an ounce of shame, he would resign.--Megan McArdle
