Who's dancing on Spitzer's grave? This may give us a clue as to how the wiretaps managed to find Spitzer instead of Al Qaeda (
Investment News):
Kenneth Langone, the target of former New York State Attorney General Eliot G. Spitzer's lawsuit regarding the hefty compensation package for former NYSE chairman Dick Grasso, felt little remorse for the Empire State's embattled governor, who is charged with having dealings with a prostitution ring.

"We all have our own private hells," Mr. Langone said in an interview with CNBC television on Monday night.

"I hope his private hell is hotter than everyone else's."

When asked if Mr. Spitzer should be forced to resign, Mr. Langone, a former director of the New York Stock Exchange and co-founder Home Depot, said: "Absolutely. He is a hypocrite. He destroyed reputations of people with good reputations and deserved reputations."
Well, gosh, that sounded sincere, until you realize that Langone was defending his role in giving former NYSE chairman Dick Grasso $187 million, about which Spitzer had made the wild claim that it wasn"t "fair and reasonable."

Governor Sex Fiend Spitzer made powerful enemies and is paying the price for it. Senator Sex Fiend Larry Craig, meanwhile, is free to go about his business of enacting the Republican agenda because he refused to resign over a trifling airport men's room blowjob.

Wall Street has bigger priorities than fighting Al Qaeda, despite its having attacked their clubhouse in lower Manhattan. They have grudges, you see, and payback is obviously a higher priority than security.
