Eliot Spitzer Tells It Like It Is

by Mark Wilson

Eliot Spitzer, writing in Slate, said everything I wanted to say in my previous post, but did it better:

The unifying theme is an assault on the weak. The power of individuals, each of us feeble in isolation, to act collectively and hence stand up to the powerful is being eviscerated. Those who already begin behind are finding the few legal protections afforded them under attack. A critical element of the Republican agenda has become increasing the legal power of those who already have power, and diminishing the power of the weak.

If it weren’t for his resoundingly stupid escort scandal, Spitzer would be a viable presidential candidate.
