Spitzer Opposes Downsizing…

At least when it applies to him.

Spitzer's New DigsRed County’s all a buzz, and Jubal’s panties are all in a bunch, over Assemblymember Spitzer’s assignment of new quarters.  It seems that Speaker Nunez needed to assign larger quarters to a member with a larger staff than Spitzer.  So to that end, Spitzer was downsized to smaller quarters.

The Republicans are screaming that Spitzer is being punished, for opposing the Speaker on some legislative issues.  If that were the case, I think the move would have occurred long ago. Speaking out against Democrats and the Speaker is nothing new for Spitzer, and last I checked there was no recent power shift in the Assembly.

Anyway, I cannot understand all the fuss. I thought Republicans endorsed the downsizing of government.  I guess that theory doesn’t hold true in when it is applied to one of their own.

    1) I don’t wear panties.

    2) And even if I did, they’re not “in a bunch” to quote your schoolgirl metaphor.

    3) It was me, not Spitzer, who posted about “downsizing.” And it you was you, not anyone else, who equated putting someone in a smaller office with reducing the size and scope of government — and you subsequently, in a feat of pretzel logic of heroic proportions, tried to make that an example of GOP hypocrisy.

    Hopefully, you are joking and it was just lost in translation, because I thought you were smart enough not to get your logic in bunch like that.

    Just effin with you Matt. 🙂

    I was rhetorically speaking when I refered to Spitzer being moved to smaller quarters as the downsizing of government. I remember this as a GOP mantra. I do not however see my connecting these dots to be a “feat of pretzel logic.” Rather I see it a logical extension of the illogical GOP talking points regarding downsizing in general.

    Actually Matt,

    I can think of at least one other OC Assemblymember who is far more deserving of placement in a “Closet.” That would be resident homophobe Chuck DeVore.

    DeVore in “the Closet,” now that would be poetic justice.

    So Chris, the choice is now boxers, briefs, or commando.

    I swear, sarcasm is lost online.

    I have to admit. Moving Spitzer to a smaller office while cracking a joke about downsizing government is pretty funny.

    Nunez ought to put Spitzer with Jim Silva and make them share bunk beds. Sponge Bob boxers anyone?

    Hahahahaha! I love it, Art! Now which one would drive the other one into a complete nervous breakdown first? Lordy knows Mr. Crybaby and Mr. Bumblebums have been causing other people so many hair-pulling moments of complete frustration.

    hehe ; )
