Shorter Spitzer takes

This definitely qualifies for the best comment on the Spitzer affair so far:

I expect that the next few days will feature any number of libertarians putting on their tap shoes and dancing with mad glee atop the dark and crawly final resting place of Eliot Spitzer's career. As Radley says, "sweet, sweet karmic justice".
