Well, in a move that should surprise exactly no one, Eliot Spitzer has resigned the Governorship of New York. People don't like politicians who visit prostitutes, even if the prostitutes in question are the super-classy $1,000-an-hour variety.
There's been a lot of ink spilled on this story, but for me, here's what it boils down to:
- Don't be stupid. Your personal morality is your own business, but use your goddamn brain.
- There are two things the universe loves to punish: hubris (see also: the Titanic) and hypocrisy. Spitzer had to know the other shoe was about to drop. I hope 'Kristen' or whatever her name was was worth it.
So, yeah. Time to move on, I think.
