Colbert presses Spitzer on his lack of ‘self-comptrol’ (Video)

Eliot Spitzer subjected himself to the Colbert treatment Thursday, and Stephen Colbert came loaded for bear.

A few zingers from Colbert:

"Shouldn't the job of comptroller go to someone who has shown a modicum of self-comptrol?"

"Because, before you had your fall from grace, or whatever her name was...."

"You were the governor. Aren't you at one and the same time above and below this job?"

"It seem that voters are more forgiving than they used to be. Do you think that signals progress for our country or the slow decay of our moral values?"
