Super Marios

They announced today that Eliot Spitzer will not be prosecuted for frequenting prostitutes. Just as Nixon was never prosecuted for criminal conspiracy. Just as Clinton was never prosecuted for perjury or sexual harassment or rape. Just as Foley was never prosecuted for sending sexually explicit text messages to a congressional page. Just as Scooter Libby never served his time in prison.

It seems like we are all normal Mario. When a regular citizen commits a crime there is a trial and a sentence. Politicians are all like Super Mario, Mario after the mushroom. When they commit a crime, they just get demoted back to regular Mario.
