Elliot 'Horn Dog' Spitzer

Elliot 'Horn Dog' Spitzer on how to spend a lot of tax money and cure the problems in education ..

Provide funding for robotics teams at every school. If you ever want to see intellectual competition in the arena that matters today—technological wizardry—visit the robotics competitions that now exist in some schools. Make these competitions as universal as football. Make it cool to design the next cutting-edge video game or iPod.

Watching guys sit in front of a terminal for fifty hours a week making a program video-game or circuit designers working on a CAD tool ... man it's going to take more than a whole lot more than just money to make that kind of stuff cooler than football.

It takes a weird kind of guy to think otherwise. It's like he's not even living on the same planet as the rest of us.

Or he's spent all but two years of his adult life working for the government.
