Megan McArdle (March 12, 2008) - Eliot Spitzer resigns

Megan McArdle (March 12, 2008) - Eliot Spitzer resigns: "To be sure, many people--including, yes, me--are taking glee in Spitzer's downfall even though we think all his actions should be legal. There you are: having people you disagree with revealed as stunning hypocrites is emotionally satisfying. Plus there's a positive side (I mean, beyond New York State possibly getting a decent governor). If this makes everyone rethink our nation's ridiculous prostitution laws, Eliot Spitzer will finally have made a lasting positive contribution to his country."

As is often the case with Megan, you should read the whole thing.

Megan is strong whiskey that needs to age a another decade or two in a stout oak barrel. That's my impression, anyway. She's still a bit raw and altogether too single minded about whatever her current obsession is.
