In the city, TV talk shows are big news

as upstate they talk about the Governor’s reforms

and the Geithner investigation

NY Times gives Harold Ford page one for his “evolving views” (he’s for choice and gay marriage now, doncha know).

The snark in the headline may be due to the fact thet he chose NY Post to air those suddenly convenient views for NY first.

Here’s a paragraph I like:

A Ford campaign could become a delicate subject for the Obama administration, however, which is more reluctant to assert itself in New York politics after failing last year in its effort to elbow Gov. David A. Paterson out of his election bid.

How about his failure to support the black democrat in the Mayoral race against the billionaire Bloomberg?

But the show stopper is the NY Post which revives one of the classics (Ford to the Bronx: Drop Dead)

by illustrating a column on the cover.

Some of the points are strictly RW, but some I agree with:

The president of the United States hates us.He socks New Yorkers with massive new taxes to fund his health-care monstrosity.


He tells our governor to take a long walk on a short bridge.

Not since Gerald Ford told us to drop dead has New York been so clearly in the White House cross hairs. At least that made some political sense.
