Spitzer

I'm sick of reading libertarian disclaimers, with respect to Elliot "Ness" Spitzer, that prostitution should not be illegal, nor should arranging your financial affairs in such a way as to cover your tracks. That's why I said nothing about it in my post.

The point is: it goes without saying. It also goes without saying that if a man raises vicious dogs that attack innocent people, destroy their property and fruits of their production, and wreak havoc on the lives of their families, that we should be tickled pink and overjoyed when the same dogs turn on their owner.

I am. I don't care what happens to Spitzer. The State could waterboard that fucker daily for the rest of his miserable life and I'd never lift a finger or brain cell to do anything about it.

    The only issue here is whether a governor (and a former attorney general) ought to obey the laws of his/her nation and state. Whether any one agrees with that law is beside the point.

  2. "Whether any one agrees with that law is beside the point."

    Absolutely. Just live slavery.

    It's possible to observe (as they have over at LRC) that the whole system by which Spitzer was brought down (and whoring ain't a tenth of it) is filthy rotten, without denying that Eliot Mess lived by the rottenness of it and thus deserves to die by the rottenness of it.

  4. He made his bed, he chose the sword, he built the petard.

  5. Absolutely right, Jeffrey. I especially like how his own bank got him, but reporting his "suspicious" transactions to the IRS, who then apparently referred it to the feds.

    You don't suppose Spitzer ever "profited" from similar incursions into the private affairs of individuals and businesses.

    Delicious.

    It's a bit like feeling a black-hearted joy at Trotsky's murder. No doubt; that fucker deserved it, but, all the same…the bastard behind it was one evil motherfucker.

    As I've grown fond of saying lately;

    A pox on all their houses!

    "The State could waterboard that fucker daily for the rest of his miserable life and I'd never lift a finger or brain cell to do anything about it."

    Ditto.
