Spitzer: “Save Me!”

via Hot Air » Blog Archive » Spitzer-Take on Sanford

Of all the politicians in the country who might have seen the Mark Sanford scandal as a brilliant opportunity to disappear for a few days, Eliot Spitzer would have to top the list.  UnfortunatVely [sp], Spitzer saw Sanford’s misery as an opportunity for rehabilitation.  The disgraced former governor of New York and a repeat client of prostitution rings declared himself superior to Sanford for treating women like trash.  No, I’m not kidding:

Not only did Spitzer humiliate his wife through the public exposure of infidelities (and allowed her to share that humiliation by using her as a human shield during his press conference, a role Jenny Sanford pointedly did not play), Spitzer broke the very laws on prostitution that he used to build a reputation as a crusader in New York. Spitzer is right that he “didn’t fall in love with any of them,” although Girl 9 alleged quite a bit of fondness on Spitzer’s part, but is a married man buying flesh for sexual release really more honorable than a married man conducting an affair?

Honestly, what the hell is going on that so many media outlets are getting on board the “Steamroller Rehab World Tour”? Outfits like MSNBC keep giving him air time, citing his “experience” as the media-styled “Sheriff of Wall Street,” when the truth is he was an absolute failure in that role.
