You know things are bad when...


A majority of New York voters would rather see Eliot Spitzer, the state's hooker-happy former governor, back in office than his beleaguered successor, Gov. Paterson, a new poll revealed Monday.

The latest poll from the Marist Institute for Public Opinion showed 51% of registered voters would rather have Spitzer in the governor's mansion right now. Spitzer resigned in March 2008 following revelations he patronized high-priced prostitutes.

Strikingly, even though Paterson is the state's first black governor, 53% of non-whites said they would prefer Spitzer as the state's chief executive.

The number of voters rating Paterson's job performance as "good" or "excellent" plummeted to 19%, marking a seven-point drop since Marist last asked the question in March.

i would gladly take back spitzer over this clown

i think too much emphasis is placed on politician's personal lives

-Joe said...

Yes--Spitzer any day.

Patterson is useless cracking down on the citys curruption and treats the tweeds like endangered whales.

Spitzer gave us patterson and you would gladly take him back? forget the "private life issue", because elected officials are held to a higher standard. The man was and is a mean spirited bully with no concept of the rule-of-law. And you call Bloomturd a dictator? Spitzer was the scariest dictator of them all.

Grandpa Al Lewis for Governor!!

He may be dead, but he can't be worse than any of these other "blood sucker" politicians!!

You know what I find messed up about him?

It's not that he was a married guy hiring hookers. That's his wife's problem. It's that he was going after people that did the same thing. What a hypocrite!

-Joe said...

Didnt he only like 1 hooker girl ?
Maybee he really liked her, who knows how his wife treated him.

I see these "princesses" with workahaulic billpayer professional husbands all the time in Manhasset.
These woman turn to totall crap once married !! Bunch of crazy cheating drunken soccer moms.
Watching hogs Benzie and Lexie kill each other outside the Nail Salon over parking spaces is great

However it's cheaper for the husbands to keep them !!!
---Lots of Wall Street Irish Catholics ya know.

Some tell me:
"DONT GET MARRIED WITHOUT A PRE-NUP"
"You need a shrink not a priest"

"If it Fly's, Floats or Fornicates RENT IT !!!"
Most are LAWYERS LOL !!!

I think where most of these pampered little prisses go wrong is they start ignoring their husbands and get more caught up in shopping and their tennis lessons. Some may even let themselves go. You couple that with husbands who work long hours and go away on business trips a lot and there you have it. The woman is SHOCKED when she finds out her husband is getting his jollies somewhere else.

-Joe said...

LOL...So thats what 30 Love means !!

I see these idiots groping each other in the tennis pits walking to to get my King Of Corona at Villa Milano .

I guess thats why the UPS guys do late lunch break there everyday. Sometimes you can count 6 or more trucks on Memeriol place around 2:15 PM yet never see the drivers.

UPS guys aren't elected officials - he was - f him!

linda said...

LMAO no way! can't wait for election day to come already.

-Joe said...

At least Spitzer fessed up like a man. Spitzer also had better taste in woman.

If it was OK for Bill Clinton what difference would it make what Spitzer does on his own personal time?
Guys can’t get divorced (or married for that matter) due to the shitty judges and unfare laws in this state.

My ex turned into this was a raging alcoholic who liked to sit around sniffing dandruff with garbage people.
Ohh the sh*t she put everbody through.
Give her 1/2 of every thing I own, my classic Corvette or Camaro...I dont think so !

Lucky for the kid and myself she met her maker herself with help of a telephone pole without hurting anbody else.

Hell that rapist Clinton also lied under oath and also messed around with other Female workers under him.

People are pissed at Spitzer over what he did behind closed doors legally in another state ?

linda said...

joe, thank god you have your child and you can let it go now.

spencer was more than just a womenizer, he was a corrupt governor. he had his crazy ways in office too and we're lucky this got him out. now for the bloomy idiot we have now, which he in reality isn't running the state is destroying us even more.

Oh Joe, that is horrible!

faster340 said...

I agree with IG above. Even though she had problems your child is without a mother now...

Patterson is a second bannana who's time in the top office of the land benefit the last old school black Harelem Plos club of Dinkins, Patterson Sr., Sutton and Rangle that sucked Harelem dry and made their club member rich beyond any of these guys ever hoped for. That sucking sound is loud as can be - time is running out as senile Rep Rangle is approaching 110 years old and Paterson Jr is such a dim light.

Elliot Spitzer is dead politically and as far as voter in this State are. We are not that stupid are we? Maybe he should run as Gov of Nevada!

-Joe said...

without a mother now...
--------------------------

Don’t want to go OT but I have news for you.
When the mother becomes a nutcase or druggie who cant or refuses be helped CPS will demand you get a divorce (on your wallet) or they take the kid away.

The kid is then left with NO parents.

If you do divorce you risk loosing 1/2 of everything you own with these crazy NYS judges plus pay alimony.
They always side with the woman or mother, especially if they hear the father is a musician !!
I dont have lots of cash like Billy Joel to pay high end lawyers

By the time you get through the mill your 1/2 broke and the kid ends up having to go to some overcrowded "multicutural" tweeded NYC or Nassau county public school.

I still have my small farm & house in Southold; the school is great ---no tweeds in the Mattituck-Chutchoge schools like Riverhead or Queens.

Its 99.9 % Italian, Polish, German and Irish.
..some rather nice Greeks to !

I know this is off topic here and I don't know your whole story Joe but "In sickness and in health" means a lot to me.

faster340 said...

I am sorry I won't say anything else. This is not what this specific blog post is about. Later....

italian girl said...

To summarize:


Joe was happy his ex croaked rather than give her one red cent.

Nice.

Joe, my heart goes out to you. In my case, a close female friend was saddled with crazy CPS regulations that have given a vicious ex-husband and her mentally-disturbed child cart blanche to beat and attack her.

When a neighbor called the police while her child was beating her crippled, almost blind mother, smashing her glasses and trying to put her through a wall, the CPS showed up to make sure that the child would not break a fingernail while slaughtering her parent.

It is not surprising that the government takes the side of the crazies because they are crazy too.

Only someone familiar with domestic abuse can relate to how fed up one can get with the situation. My friend wishes her child was a drug addict because then there might be a cure for the behavior. Evil has no cure.

linda said...

wow we are so off the topic and onto joe's life! first joe i know of a few men who got their children and not the mothers. i guess it's the way your case was handled. sorry dude for your heartaches and hope your kid has excelled.........

italian girl said...

Actually Joe, I apologize for my previous post. I shouldn't have said that.

-Joe said...

Im not offended at all, not by anything posted.
Everybody has a right to free speech and opinions.
New Yorkers "tell it to ya"
Its part of real New Yorker culture and heritage, blogs like this are good thing.
This must be protected IMO

....and still legal as of now anyway.
We may be in big Doo Doo with the next US Supreme Court judge to be appointed by Obama and the insane "Offensive Speech" Bill.

italian girl said...

I hope the next judge they pick is as Liberal as they come.

conservative bad
liberal good

Strikingly, Crapper still thinks all black people act in lockstep with their own.

And some people call the former president simple-minded.

"huh?" is the story of your life, crapper. Strikingly, I'm just mocking your word choice.

No, it's not the story of my life. Amazing how you would assume you know my life or my views based on an excerpt copied from an article not written by me.
