‘Colbert Report’: Eliot Spitzer Has Nothing to Lose
Eliot Spitzer is attempting to work his way back into the public’s good graces, and the former New York governor braved “The Colbert Report” on Tuesday night, only to be roundly “condemned” by Stephen Colbert. However, Spitzer has a certain likability, Colbert admitted, which might have something to do with having nothing to hide anymore. Nearly two years after his resignation in the face of a prostitution scandal, Spitzer is once again hot on the heels of Wall Street’s shameless bandits, and he thinks we all ought to be furious that the government and Wall Street are “rebuilding the system exactly as it was before” the economic cataclysm of 2008. –KA
