Christine Anderson, Governor Spitzer's Director of Communications, explaining the "upstate" State of the State.

(The second floor genius who came up with this first-ever fiasco-in-waiting better stay out of my office) . Is it weak? (Now this genius has me asking if the upstate economy is weak when I know a new report shows it lost 85,000 jobs between 2000 and 2006). What do we have to do next? (What I'm going to do next is find the propeller-hat in our administration who has no idea what the flack does).
