Eliot Spitzer Has Not Been Whoring Since He Was a Toddler.
This morning Today show host Matt Lauer interviewed Eliot Spitzer, asking the former New York governor and onetime State Attorney General pointed questions about Wall Street misconduct, outrageous executive compensation packages, government bailouts and how awesome is it to bust up prostitution rings in the morning and then have three hookers and a 55 gallon drum of chocolate pudding sent up to your hotel room that same evening.
Probably the most incisive (and by most incisive I mean most awesome) moment in the interview came when Matt Lauer asked Spitzer to reminisce on the early days of his whore-mongering and to clarify just how long ago that would be. Spitzer replied by placing his adventures in context with the geological time scale and noted that not many animal species have gone extinct in the meantime and so whore-mongering is a relatively recent phenomenon for him:
Lauer: …give me some ballpark, some estimation of how long this went on and how frequently.
Spitzer: Not frequently, not long in the grand context of my life.
Oh how the mighty have fallen. You were da man once, Spitz. We loved you when you were putting away Wall Street fat cats. The people of New York made you their governnor to demonstrate their appreciation. Now you’re just the butt of a joke. Sigh.
