How ludicrous that the person doing an in-depth report on the actions of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Dominique Strauss-Kahn is none other than the illustrious Eliot Spitzer. No way is fiction more provocative than real life.
When Ah-nold made his public apology, requesting that “I ask that the media respect my wife and children through this extremely difficult time. While I deserve your attention and criticism, my family does not.”, he should have considered his family more seriously thirteen years ago when he fathered a son outside of wedlock. How dare he now pretend to have concern for the welfare of his wife and children. Where the hell was that love, respect and care for his family when he made that irresponsible decision in the first place? He has no more contemplation for his family now than he did back then. His role modeling for his children was dead thirteen years ago and is dead today.
