The Emperor's New Clothes-New York Politics Reinvented

The Emperor has new clothes.
I had to laugh to read that the former Governor of New York Eliot Spitzer wishes to petition to run for Comptroller of New York.  In case you did not hear Spitzer had to resign because of his dealings with prostitutes while Governor.  I guess he truly respects both his wife and women in general.
But hey what is the big deal?  I see more and more politicians who really have no ethics or morals.  Their egos being as large as they are really have no need or respect for rules or laws that we common citizens must follow.  This is why Anthony Weiner is running for Mayor of New York City.  To me he is another politician who has no ethics or morals and thus is confident of his omnipotent power.  But in both cases neither man has anything to offer to the positions they are running for other than satisfying their bloated egos.
Power corrupts more and more each day in our political system.  The disconnect between economic reality and our political system grows daily.
And we as citizens and taxpayers must continue to view the folly of these stale and corrupted politicians forcing themselves upon the voting public.  But then again I have enough corruption to deal with here in Connecticut-New York's neighbor.  Both Spitzer and Weiner are hypocrites in the purest political sense.
