Tall Tales

Patrick Manning: Totally committed to family values. Except when they get in the way of his philandering.If anyone was wondering what Patrick Manning does in Albany when the Legislature's in session, now they know. Maybe they also remember when Manning announced he was running for Governor and said this about Eliot Spitzer:
We know when a man can't milk a cow and this man can't milk a cow.
Is that what they're calling Manning's recent activities these days, milking a cow? That's pretty weird. Anyway, we suggested back in September that Manning might successfully "capture the imagination of New York voters." I'd say that this week he's done that and more.
Manning has spent a lot of time positioning himself as some sort of thoughtful conservative. I guess his definition of a conservative is someone who only has an affair with one woman at a time.
