I think he's going to pull a Dwyer, we'll see. He was an a*hole from the very beginning, a stubborn spoiled a*hole and everyone basically hates the guy. Now he's done, political suicide.

Just goes to show again - ya gotta be dishonest to be in politics. What else would you expect to be in a career such as this?? Until the country imposes term limits on ALL political postions(4 yrs., run just like a jury selection), this is what you can expect to happen. I'm already giving him the benefit of the doubt - he's only human, BUT......setting yourself up to be caught is sheer stupidity. Just who N.Y. needs to be ruuning the show..................

Gee, NBC & ABC didn't mention Spitzer was a democrat. Now if he had an (R) after his name the broadcast would have started with "Republican". The Associated Press didn't mention it, the NYT mentioned it in the 15th paragraph of a 19 paragraph story. MSNBC and CNN's web site also had no mention of his party affiliation. Media bias na.

Better than affirmatively misrepresenting his party not once, but 3 times, don't you think?

Holy Crap!!!! This is hilarious. I was sitting there watching the news the other day (not that I wanted to...I was waiting for the weather report...see signature below remember that I do consider myself a moron at times...weather report...70% wrong and they still have a job) and I saw the NY Gov. story and I was wondering the same thing..."What is his political party? They never mentioned it? This should be an interesting topic on the Anthracite Coal forum!" :lol: Naturally after a few channel changes I finally found out.

Now that link that Stocking posted...that cracks me up also....good ol' FREE press!! So what do you all think? 2 examples...one from Stocking one from spc...is the free press advertising driven or is it politically driven?????? Naturally it can't be both... :lol:

You are comparing nightly news, the NYT, AP with oreilly? I won't even count MSNBC and CNN. Oreilly does like 2 million viewers a night, the nightly news NBC & ABC does 18 million. AP goes all over the world. Got any more?

Don't get me wrong: Spitzer amply deserved what he got. To me, he's most akin to Rudy: the tough-guy DA who's cleaning up the street. And who thinks none of it applies to him (or, in Rudy's case, his friends too).

I've seen it analyzed that there are 3 qualitative levels of political damage from a "personal mistake." The least political damage is done if it's really a "mistake." More accrues if it's a mistake that's hypocritical, and by far the most when a mistake isn't really a "mistake" but rather is misbehavior borne of hubris. Because Spitzer lived by the indictment and ran roughshod over his adversaries, because he knew well and even used the same devices which ultimately brought him down, there's virtually no sympathy for him, even (and maybe especially) in his own party.

It was so breathtakingly stupid that it borders on a political suicide attempt. One which proved successful.

Good riddance.

Looks like the new NY Gov. Paterson is going down slowly. Who's next in line?
