"Rather Different Personality Traits"

Gov. Spitzer described in today's Times:

"Mr. Gyory is easygoing and gentle, while Mr. Spitzer is known for rather different personality traits."

Yeah, the Times has that right.

Conniving. Check.

Ruthless. Check.

Conspiratorial. Check.

Anger Management Therapy. Check.

Hedley Lamarr's Blazing Saddles Froggy. Check.

Captain Queeg's Strawberries. Check.

Whoa. Whoa, Governor. Why the F-ing? Why in front of the kid? All ya gotta do is say "earmuffs" to him. Check.

On Day 305, Nothing Changes

Shortly before his Inaugural Address, Gov. Spitzer told The New York Times:

“The theme of the inaugural speech is clearly going to be that we are turning a corner. We have to think of ourselves through a different prism, both in terms of ethics and as an entire state. We have to think of ourselves as one New York and not a series of interests that are spoken to, appealed to and mollified.”

So much for the "different prism." Gov. Spitzer's administration is in disarray, and to recover he decided to hire - a super lobbyist.
