Marlin Blog

Conservative activist and former Port Authority head George Marlin now has his own blog, Street Corner Conservative, which he is promptly using to give Eliot Spitzer the kind of treatment he once reserved for George Pataki.

Here, for example, is his take on how Spitzer fared in dealing with the legislative leaders on congestion pricing:

“Bruno and Silver really hustled Spitzer – but one would never know it from reading statements emanating from the governor’s office. That’s because Spitzerland is adopting another page from Patakiland’s political manual: press release government. The impact the fine print of these deals will have on taxpayers doesn’t matter to the governor’s handlers. What does matter is promoting the illusion in press releases that Spitzer is still the champion of self-anointed Do-Goods.”
