In Brooklyn we’d say “he thinks who he is”

I’m still in engagement lalaland but I couldn’t resist blogging this:

Former Gov. Eliot Spitzer was reading his newspaper on a recent Thursday morning when he was jolted by a comment made by his successor, David A. Paterson.

In the 22nd paragraph of a New York Times article on Aug. 21, Mr. Paterson said that aides to Mr. Spitzer had lacked experience in Albany, and added that the Spitzer administration’s management approach sometimes “just didn’t work.”

Mr. Spitzer grew upset, according to a senior aide to Mr. Paterson and another official. He picked up the phone, reached a Paterson aide, demanded a public apology from the governor and “issued threats, veiled and unveiled” against Mr. Paterson, said the aide, who insisted on anonymity because he did not want to anger either man.

No public apology was offered; Mr. Spitzer and Mr. Paterson have not spoken since June.

Hahahahaha. Sorry, is Eliot “brought down in a hooker scandal” Spitzer unaware that he’s no longer in a position to be demanding anything from anyone ever? He’s threatening the governor? Is he serious?

He’s an egomaniac, of course he’s serious.

Could you please fix your misspelling of Eliot? Thanks.

Just out of curiosity, if you were Eliot Spitzer, why on earth would you even open any newspaper for the rest of your life?

I really wish there was a post debate blog. McCain made my laugh with the best one-liner: (about Putin’s eyes) “I saw three letters; K,G and B” Ha ha.
I’d say a muted draw, but I worry the Rep supporters have painted themselves into a corner (O can speak without a teleprompter for example).
McCain seemed to run out of things to say, and at times possibly lost the audience IMO. Attacked well.
Obama did Ok, but could have done better. He spent a lot of time on the backfoot “correcting” stuff he could have let go.
I am really looking forward to the VP debate, Even if it means watching it the next day. IMO this will be a more critical debate for poll numbers than at any time in the last 20 years.

“Is he serious?”
In retrospect, it’s clear he never was. (At least, not in any serious sense of “serious”.)
