Client #9 - Busted

Eliot Spitzer, one of the most evil men in America, got busted today. Too bad it wasn't for his true crimes.

When it finally registered yesterday that Spitzer had been elected governor in a landslide, I felt like a knife had been thrust into my chest. Hence my blog comments.

Spitzer, Hitler - What's the Difference?

Given that Spitzer was a brazen ruthless ruiner of men and was elected to his office in a landslide, do we now understand how America can elect a Hitler? And what does this say about the fascist underbelly of the Democratic Party?

I heard a colleague of his defending all the good things he had done in his short term as governor, trying to salvage something, anything, of Spitzer and the Democrats in New York. My ears were in rebellion. I wretched.

This fascist ugliness is just behing the drape in our current political drama. And this, I say, is the primary lesson in this matter. WAKE UP!

Thanks for the comment Principlex. And while I can certainly sympathize with your feeling of repulsion towards Spitzer and your disdain of an electorate that put him in power, I think it's a bit much to equate him to Hitler. Doing so trivializes the mass murder of 6 million people.

Nonetheless I do agree that when a petty thug like Spitzer can be elected on a platform which basically amounts to: "The law and due process be damned, I can and will do anything that I judge to be in the (undefinable) public interest", we've definitely taken more than a few steps down the road towards totalitarianism.
