Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.

Eliot Spitzer

He humps prostitutes.

All right, I don't really find the crime to be all that horrible. I don't... I find sex work to be a greatly maligned and dangerous profession that requires openness and regulation, not criminalization and stigma. Folks are gonna pay and get paid to hump. That's a fact.

Tax the hell out of it.

Eliot Spitzer is a horny dude. He also betrayed his wife. He is also... a hypocrite. The first one is forgivable, the second one is only forgivable by his wife, and the third one... The third one is where I draw the line. I can't call for his resignation. I'm not a New Yorker, that isn't my place. However, I CAN say that I do not abide hypocrites.

The prostitute humping is irrelevant. The hypocrisy is the REAL story.
