Geez. I can't possibly imagine that tone being taken with, say, a Republican governor who had abandoned a divisive proposal to ban late term abortion. Why does the NY Times always have to root for dems, even when they are crumbling apart like this demagogue Spitzer?

I liked this from the editorial:

Mr. Spitzer can either figure out how to operate the governor’s office more skillfully for the next three years, or he can fail in his vital mission to reform and restart New York State.

Doesn't have to be either/or. He could become a more "skillful" governor and still fail to reform the state - i.e., he could successfully implement lousy ideas....like driver's licenses for illegals.

I read that and the only thought I could come up with is that sounds like the praise you give retarded kids when they learn to tie their own shoelaces. I do hope the accounting department at the NYT has a billing number set up for the Democratic party.

What!?! Another example of the editorial page failing to read their own news pages? Say it ain't so!

Or was this just another example of partisan "bucking up" on the news pages? Who can ever tell with the Times?

It really does look like Bloomberg will run for governor, and not president.

hit and run

From the editorial:
When Gov. Eliot Spitzer dropped his proposal to make driver’s licenses available to undocumented immigrants yesterday


I've got good news and bad news? Which do you want first? The bad news?

Well. They call them driver's licenses.

The good news? OK.

They call them undocumented immigrants, not illegal immigrants.

Now, if they can just properly frame driver's licenses as "documents", we could make this work.

"Documents for the undocumented immigrants". See, it sounds much better that way.

Sincerly,
