Spitzer Take

Our beloved, bulldog of a governor - the guy who told record companies that payola wasn't going to fly any more - may be leaving office. Elliott Spitzer seems to have illegally gotten some nookie to cross state lines for his pleasure. Maybe he and the young lady just got naked and talked. Whatever happened was bad enough for the dude to apologize for it publicly and hunker down with his closest advisors in NYC to figure out what to do next.

My guess is he'll resign. Not because of some partisan threat of impeachment (the 48 hour demand to step down is laughable posturing). No, I believe he'll resign because he likely committed one of the very crimes he built his career on prosecuting. If he gets boneheaded, and refuses to resign, then impeach the doofus.

The guy clearly messed up royally and should pay for it. I hope Spitzer will take the high road and do this because it is the right thing to do. I can't imagine that he'll do it the "Washington Way" and change the rules so he can legally fuck people.
