After sharing his insights on romance in an interview last week, the Luv Gov resurfaced on The Colbert Report last night. Colbert kicked things off by asking, "Got any big plans after the show tonight?" (Spitzer: "Going straight home!") But the conversation quickly turned to the financial system, with Colbert fretting that his banking buddies "down at the club" would be hurt by Obama's recent proposal. "We're not going to go through regulation, are we?" Colbert wondered, to which Spitzer sardonically replied, "Oh, I certainly hope not. We wouldn't want to regulate an industry that has just destroyed our economy." It's a pretty great interview; watch below and wonder how things might have been different if our political culture's hypocritical puritanism hadn't forced Spitzer out over some stupid (okay, fine, technically illegal) infidelities.
