"Spitzer’s Resignation Would, In the End, Mean a Superdelegate Loss for Hillary"

There now seems to be a new element in the drive for Governor Eliot Spitzer's resignation. It is that his resignation would mean the loss of ONE superdelegate for Hillary Clinton at the Democrat convention as you can see in this KOmmie THREAD titled, "Spitzer’s Resignation Would, In the End, Mean a Superdelegate Loss for Hillary." Yes, just ONE less superdelegate. The Obama wing of the Democrat party are so desperate to defeat Hillary they are actually savoring that ONE superdelegate loss despite the fact that the loss of ONE superdelegate won't affect the outcome since Barack Obama (especially after last night's overwhelming victory in Mississippi) is comfortably ahead of Hillary in the overall delegate count. Personally I don't care one way or another if Spitzer resigns although from the DUmmie FUnnies POV I hope he remains in office since he would generate a lot of great DUFU material as governor. However, to the KOmmies it laughably all comes down to that ONE superdelegate loss for Hillary even though the loss of one delegate will have NO effect on the convention outcome. So let us now watch the KOmmies obsess over a mere loss of ONE superdelegate for Hillary while the commentary of your humble correspondent, noting that you can again access the DUFUs by simply typing in your URL box, is in the [brackets]:

Spitzer’s Resignation Would, In the End, Mean a Superdelegate Loss for Hillary

[That's it. Forget any laws Spitzer has broken. The fact that his resignation means the loss of ONE superdelegate for Hillary means he's toast.]

This is just a quick diary to point out that Spitzer’s resignation, which seems increasingly more likely, would result in the loss of one superdelegate for Hillary. Spitzer is, of course, a superdelegate who has endorsed Hillary and would vote for her in Denver.

[I am blaming Spitzer for Hillary losing since it was his plan to give driver's licenses to illegal aliens and her inability to answer a question about this at a debate that started her big decline in the primaries.]

Under New York law, Lt. Gov. David Paterson would take his place. Paterson is also a superdelegate who has endorsed Hillary. However, under New York law, Paterson’s position would be filled by the president of the state senate, Joseph Bruno, who is a Republican. Bruno would not be allowed to vote in Denver – and he certainly wouldn’t vote for Hillary if he were given the chance.

[Since David Paterson is legally blind, he still doesn't know that Hillary is white...yet. Hee! Hee!]

So Spitzer’s resignation would mean one fewer superdelegate for Clinton. Of course, there is also the guilt by association, which is unfair, but inescapable in the political landscape. The Spitzer case cannot but be damaging for Clinton. But whatever the public relations harm, when the dust settles, Spitzer’s imminent departure will favor Obama mathematically.

[By ONE whole vote. Although it would be great if Hillary lost the nomination by just ONE delegate vote.]

He, his wife, his children are destroyed. And all this site can look at is one less delegate for Hillary Clinton. Quite sad, really.

[But the pettiness is quite FUnnie, really.]

Its been 24 hours so now its time for horse race analysis thats the way political blogging works if you don't like it don't participate in it.

[Make that 24 BUSINESS hours.]

I can't believe this situation all comes down to "another delegate lost for Hillary." For pete's sake, I have never seen so much irrationality here as I have in the last 24 hours and that includes all the silly candidate diaries.

[Shhh! Don't discourage their pettiness. It makes for great humor.]

Got to admit the perverse side of me wants to know what you get from a $5500/hour hooker that you can't get from your average cheating housewife...

[Spitzer didn't have the charm to woo somebody's wife. He had to PAY for it.]

This was a terrible and incredibly stupid thing he did, since he of all people knew of every federal law he was breaking. It would be incredible, completely unbelievable, if it weren't rue.

[I thought her name was Amber, not Rue.]

Spitzer does not have any sort of special relationship w/ Clinton anymore than he does with Sen. Charles Schumer. Spitzer is no more Clinton's close political associate than is, say, Majority Leader Sheldon Silver of the NY Assembly. Spitzer was never busy campaigning for Hillary, but his replacement, Lt. Gov. Paterson, in fact WAS quite active--even going to Iowa to campaign for her.

[Someone needs to tell legally blind Paterson that Hillary is white.]

One thing you've got to love about all this: read any given MSM story about Spitzer and see how many times and at which points his political affiliation is mentioned. It certainly isn't plastered all over the place like David Vitter's and Larry Craig's were. If it is mentioned, it's waaaaaaaay down in the story.

So it must follow that Obami cut Spitz off at the knees. And the new Gov is black so he'll switch to Obami soon.

Spitzer once said the Constitution is a "dead piece of paper" and that progressives need to work to make the Constitution what they "think it ought to be."

Wrong about both the material and substance of the Constitution! Good thing he has been stopped.

Currently there is a contest underway for the most powerful position in the world. It is not something to be relinquished lightly. On the Democratic side it has come down to the vote of the super delegates. Neither Hillary nor Obama will win sufficient primary delegates to carry the nomination.

Elliot Spitzer is (or was) a super delegate. If you get 800 or so Democrats in a room, how many will have secrets like Spitzer’s? The occasional mistress, kinky sex life, gambling problem, whatever. The Clintons are ruthless people. They once ran the government, including the Justice Department. They have files. They simply say to the supers with dirt under their finger nails, “See what we just did to Spitzer? If you don’t pledge your vote to Hillary, you’re next.”

If you don’t think that’s plausible then ask yourself why in the world the FBI was investigating a prostitution case, for heaven’s sake. Don’t we have
other things to worry about?

Just saying….

Are you suggesting that the Clintons were behind the investigation of a superdelegate that had pledged his vote to Hillary? While they weren't in office? I don't doubt that the Clintons have the capacity to be extremely unethical, but this theory about their involvement in THIS investigation just has too many holes in it to ignore.

The investigation was undertaken because of "Suspicious Activity Reports" that Spitzer's bank filed regarding large cash withdrawals from his accounts. Those mandatory SARs were most likely the justification used to get the wiretap warrants.

Spitzer is a dumbass who knew what he was doing and how easy it was for law enforcement to detect it and still thought he could get away with it. Good riddance!

This scandal was just the straw that broke the camels back for Spitzer. He probably could of survived this if he hadn't had already sustained a few political body blows prior. His using the NYS Troopers to spy on his rival Joe Bruno kicking off the "Troopergate" scandal was his first blunder. His proposal to give Illegals drivers lisences, and his attitude and personal attacks on anyone who opposed the idea..which was about 75-80% of the state, was his second and a major blunder. His attitude and style of governance rubbed many people the wrong way on both sides. By the time this scandal broke, his approval ratings were already in the neighborhood of Chimpy's. Now only the frothiest of moonbats would still support him. Anybody who overpays for pussy that much is unfit to lead and should resign in shame.

Agreed. Some "alpha male" this dude is. Even Slick Willy managed to pick up chicks in bars when he was governor of Arkansas. And not to spam or anything, but a single RSD bootcamp is a lot cheaper than a single tryst with a hooker.

I fired them off this missive right after!

Pat Buchanan should be fired for telling Keri Goff to ’shut up’ last night on your show. Americans are tired of the racist bullcrap on our televisions. Has Buchanan ever told a white guest to shut up? No! Fire him for being a racist and the irony was not lost on your viewers last night that your guests were talking about Ferraro’s comments about Barack and then Buchanan felt the need to tell the only black panelist to shut up in a way that was demeaning and demoralizing.

MSNBC is getting more pathetic each day. Keith Olbermann is the only classy show in the lineup. You all should be ashamed of yourselves for allowing this kind of crap to go on! Fire Buchanan please!

Is MSNBC the new Fox news? Apparently so. Boooo-hisss. Zeeg Heil!

PASS IT ON!!!!!!!

Thanks, PJ. I'll pass it on.

That Cyndi Lauper song "True Colors" was the best song she ever did. Don't you think?
