Sure, you’ve seen a hundred shots of Katie Holmes celebrating at The New York Observer‘s 25th Anniversary Party by now. If you didn’t know what Rex Reed looked like, now you do. And those pictures of Spike Lee, Mayor Bloomberg and Chuck Close? Sure, we could see how some Read More
Admit it: when you heard that George Pataki was preparing a presidential campaign, you thought you heard wrong. Then you laughed. And then you laughed a little louder.
It’s O.K. You’re not alone. Plenty of New Yorkers very likely had the same reaction, just as they did four years ago when Mr. Pataki spent a few ill-advised months chasing votes in Iowa and New Hampshire before quietly giving up.

President Obama will be at the World Trade Center site tomorrow and–while former President George W. Bush won’t be joining him–a number of New York’s congressional representatives will be making the trip back from Washington.

New York Post state editor Fred Dicker doesn’t think much of public radio host and newspaper publisher Alan Chartock, who yesterday accused Dicker of having an unholy alliance with the governor in some kind of agreement that included Dicker’s publisher, Rupert Murdoch.

George Pataki is having stock trouble.
Earlier this year, when The Observer profiled the former New York governor’s odd involvement with penny stocks, the article opened with a scene inside a 36-foot geodesic dome. “It’s tremendous,” he said, celebrating the tiny plastics company, Perf Go Green, whose board he’d joined. Music from instruments called Read More

Can they only drive at midnight?
George Pataki announced today the start of a cross-country “Revere Rides Again” tour for his anti-healthcare legislation group, Revere America. Four brothers from Florida, all between the ages of 19 and 22, will travel through the Midwest and East Coast in a Mustang convertible collecting signatures in Read More
George Pataki, who has recently gone from the board of one very odd-looking penny stock to another, is not going to be a senator anytime soon. He has decided to skip the Senate race, the Wall Street Journal wrote today, which is a lucky thing for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, whose poll Read More
I wonder who else, besides George Pataki, will invoke Michel Bloomoberg while opposing the health care bill.
