A Pile-Up on Responsibility Road
The news that Gov. David Paterson (D-N.Y.) won’t seek a full term of his own in the wake of a new scandal reminds me of this TV ad that Paterson and gubernatorial nominee Eliot Spitzer ran in 2006, and which first became darkly ironic when Spitzer resigned in a prostitution scandal.
Video after the jump:
The “all the way to the end” line is especially bitter now. And it’s especially hard to see how Spitzer’s rumored designs on a comeback campaign for state comptroller will work now that his hand-picked successor is going to leave in disgrace, loathed by most of the state’s voters.
