The Wall Street Journal Can Blow Eliot Spitzer

Eliot Ness recently had a chat with Interview magazine (he also had his picture taken, at left. Don't worry, the other one is after the jump for those of you who need a fix). On the topic of shame, the noted hooker fucker said he's seen it "from every side." When asked what his biggest mistake has been, he coyly answered "I think the answer to that question is pretty obvious now" (it's not! Was it the socks during sex? Not even asking if you could wear a Scream mask when doing her from behind? ANSWER THE QUESTION). And as for the Wall Street Journal? While their chest hair and cankle coverage is commendable, they could stand to improve in some other areas.

"I don't think The Wall Street Journal has the foggiest idea of what capitalism is all about. They don't understand what markets are and how they work. I believe that for markets to work, you need a government that brings enforcement actions and sets parameters the way we were trying to when I was AG. It was part of a much more nuanced argument that I was trying to make when I was governor about what government should do. But populism, which is driven by anger, isn't going to get us to the point where we actually create jobs or wealth for people. It's a visceral response. What we need is a more sophisticated understanding of how the economy really works-and the caricature that's put forth on The Wall Street Journal's editorial page is just as wrong as the one put forth by the angry populists."
