Spitzer has been all over the Tee Vee Machine lately, so you know something had to be up:
Former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer (D), “who stepped down from the governor’s office amid scandal, is now strongly considering a run for state comptroller,” sources tell the New York Post.
“Spitzer has in recent weeks had discussions with some Democratic donors and insiders about the position currently held by Tom DiNapoli.”
“It’s unclear whether a Spitzer candidacy would rely on a Democratic donor base, or if the former governor — whose family is wealthy — is thinking of pouring his own dough into a campaign. It is also unclear if he would challenge DiNapoli in a primary, or if he’s considering running as an independent.”
So it’s a maybe, perhaps, could-be situation. Clear?
Cheers erupted along the Columbia River on Thursday morning as Sarah Palin and her large family of “Rogue Runners” approached the start line for the annual Turkey Trot.
Oh boy! A chance to rub shoulders with Barbie McLipSchmutz in a running outfit, this time not leaning on the American flag!
I can just hear the murmers of adoration, smell the anticipation-induced sweat, taste the fangirl/fanboy fervor!
Both fun run participants and spectators who’d been waiting more than an hour in the bitter cold for a glimpse of the former Republican vice presidential candidate rushed to snap her picture with cameras and cell phones.
I hope every potential snapper got satisfaction this time. I mean, after that last fiasco in which Barbie abandoned her groupies, she wouldn’t dare renege this time, right?
Palin had announced on Twitter that she would be running the 5K race, organized by the Benton-Franklin Chapter of the Red Cross.
However, she didn’t finish the race, opting to leave the course early to avoid more crowds at the end. About 40 minutes into the run, people gathered at the finish line to get more pictures of Palin started to learn that she was gone.
Ruh-roh. This can’t end well.
Towards the end of the race, the officers asked Palin what she wanted to do. Palin decided to divert off the course and head back to their cars so the family could get to their Thanksgiving dinner, Pitts said.
Sarah the Quitter should quit while she’s behind.
