Spitzer Author, College Classmate Cheerleader for Comeback 4/23/10
Author of new Spitzer rehab book "Rough Justice," a love letter which dwells on the sexual but fails to examine the blackmail and selective prosecution tactics he used as a prosecutor, or his misuse of state funds to have State Police spy on his enemies, has revealed himself as a cheerleader for a return of Client #9 to public office.

Spitzer Book is Revisionist Crap 4/15/10
Peter Elkind's new book "Rough Justice," a chronicle of the fall and supposed resurrection of Eliot Spitzer, is a contorted piece of shit. Elkind joins the growing Upper East Side Liberal chorus that would have us forget Spitzer's violation of various state and federal laws, his repeated lies about the abuse of power involved in using the state police to spy on his political opponents and his lies regarding the source of the funding of his first two campaigns for Attorney General.

Paladino Makes Some Sense on Gay Marriage 4/15/10
Conservative businessman Carl Paladino is opposed to gay marriage in New York State. But because Paladino favors Initiatives and Referendums, he has proposed it be put to a vote and would abide by the result as Governor.

Hammond's Organ 4/12/10
The New York Daily News used to be the newspaper of middle-class New York. The paper favored by the Irish, Italians, Poles, as well as New York's emerging African-American and Latino middle-class, lost its place in the newspaper market by shifting left in its editorial posture and through its columnists tried to become the New York Times. This explains why they have a smaller and smaller share of newspaper readers in the New York metropolitan area.

Paybacks are a Bitch 4/12/10
Florida Governor Charlie Crist told former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani that he was unlikely to endorse any candidate in the 2008 Florida Republican Presidential Primary, but if he did endorse a candidate, it would be the Mayor. Unfortunately, Crist told Mitt Romney the same thing, except the former Massachusetts Governor would be the one picked. Only weeks later, Crist endorsed John McCain without even a courtesy warning to Giuliani or Romney. Back then Crist was the king of all he surveyed, with a 71% approval rating and the affection of Florida voters across the spectrum.

New York GOP Rumble 3/24/10
Former New York U.S. Senator Alfonse D'Amato, while theoretically a Republican, is a major fundraiser for New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo. D'Amato is hoping his perceived relationship with Cuomo will pay off for Park Avenue Strategies, D'Amato's lobbying firm which peddles influence in Albany and Washington. Why Cuomo, who needs to be seen as a reformer, is willing to be seen with a low-life like D'Amato is beyond me.

StoneZone Book Review 3/24/10
Historians are traditionally "men of the left," academics eager to re-write history. So it is with Ronald Reagan. "The Reagan tax cuts caused the deficit" we are told. "Federal revenues dropped due to the Reagan tax cuts" they sniff. None of this is true, of course.

The Spitzer Watch 3/24/10
Rich, bored, and unrepentant Eliot Spitzer continues to bounce from interview to interview trying out a new rationalization for his hooker-habit every couple days.

Memorandum For David Axelrod 3/9/10
I understand how you feel. Washington can be a cold and lonely place when the Georgetown cocktail set figures out that the Emperor has no clothes. Imagine the surprise of the cognoscenti when they found out that Obama was not only not Black Jesus, but he turned out to be Black Jimmy Carter; indecisive, in over his head.

Silver's Cabal 3/9/10
Embattled New York Governor David Paterson must resist establishment pressure to resign in the wake of various ethics sandals unfolding in his Administration. The elevation of unelected Lieutenant Governor Richard Ravitch is the desired game-plan of Assembly Speaker Sheldon 'Shelly' Silver who is elected only by a narrow swath of voters on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
