Two weeks ago, Virginia’s governor, Tim Kaine, dined with Eliot and Silda Spitzer and said Silda was “really delightful.” Today, she’s standing before the cameras beside her cheating husband, being played for a fool.
It doesn’t matter how accomplished, attractive, or devoted a wife is when her husband decides to let his auxiliary brain – the one with the IQ of 3 – start calling his shots.
When the man is wealthy or a public figure and the wife chooses to stay for whatever reason, she sells her soul to him, just as the hooker sold her body to him. The duped wife teaches her children it’s OK for Dad to betray Mom and maybe give her an STD – as long as Mom gets to keep calling herself Mrs.
Behind closed doors, I hope Silda Spitzer’s calling her lawyer, packing her bags, and using Eliot’s checkbook to write a nice down-payment on a condo for herself and their three daughters.
After all, the 22-year-old call girl involved in this mess is getting her 15 minutes of fame doing interviews.
A man who turns his family inside out by indulging his worst instincts deserves no loyalty. He can never be completely trusted again. He should get the heave-ho, and the wife should get a nice settlement and walk away with some self-respect.
It will serve her well if she ever wants to run for president and have people think she’s a strong woman.
