A Spitzer with Our Weiner

It's hard to imagine many decent, informed people signing petitions for the thuggish, sleazy, hypocritically prostitution-prosecuting, bullying, business-bashing, campaign-funds-abusing, law-warping, anti-medical-marijuana, disgraced filer-and-withdrawer of groundless cases that is (or once was?) former governor and aspiring comptroller Eliot Spitzer -- and one's limited faith in humanity might almost be redeemed by Roger Stone's July 15 entry suggesting that Spitzer probably hasn't gotten as many signatures as his underlings claim (though Stone, of course, has his own host of issues).

On the bright side, we will all enjoy the (Stone-orchestrated) spectacle of Spitzer running against a former madam for the position.

(And, hey, The Nation was pushing Spitzer for vice president back in the day, so think of what might have been and be grateful we do not live in an even worse alternate universe.)

Maybe former Brooklyn Congressman Fred Richmond, who is 89, can run for Public Advocate on a ticket with Weiner and Spitzer.
