Don't Sit, Don't Sit So, Don't Sit So Close To Spitz
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Someone call The Police . . .

What were the Parker Spitzer producers thinking? If there was one guy you'd want to keep at a decent distance from a female co-host, it's Gov. Love Potion #9. But tuning into the show, for the first time, tonight, I was shocked to see the way the pair had been virtually thrown into each other's laps.

A bit of inside TV baseball: I host a local TV show in my hometown. I'm always struck by how, when I'm sitting what feels quite close to a guest, we appear miles apart on camera. So for Parker and Spitzer to appear so close on TV, they must literally be rubbing, well, elbows.

They have as much chemistry as a couple in divorce court.

The only thngs they have in common are their love for Obama and their hate for Palin.

Spitzer is a jerk. He was hated in Albany before the scandal, and when it hit, everyone said it could not have happened to a nicer guy.

On top of that, his wife Silda is a very pretty woman.

He "visited" prostitues on multiple occasions.

Oh, and call me crazy, but the hooker he paid $7,000 to for an hours work looks like a reject who couldn't get picked up at 2:00am on ladies night in Massapequa Long Island (even post nose job).

The man looks like a character out of Middle Earth - and I don’t mean Aragorn!

This is the first thing I noticed about the show. How close they sit together and how small the table is. It gets worse when they bring in the guests. They are all so bunched together!

Parker is an Obama sycophant. They both deserve one another as the show swirls toward the drain of the ratings toilet.

I disagree.  They're both Obama sycophants and they're Palin haters.

Thanks, OTH: glad I’m not the only one to be struck by how strangely close they’re sitting.

I only watched about 15 minutes of the show. The overall tenor of the show is very creepy.

"Parker, supposedly the show's "conservative," condescends to Christine O'Donnell as a "girl" who, while "cute and spunky," Parker wouldn't want running the country."

OTOH, the Democrat females, largely fugly and frumpy are helping to run the country - INTO THE GROUND!

I heard a rumor that he’s going to be cast as Golum in the upcoming movie based on “The Hobbit”. The studio estimated that they will save almost $900,000 on make-up and masks...

When will the Chicken Noodle Network realize that giving killers and other criminals a show cannot end well?

It’s like giving a balloon to a porcupine. It’s amusing for all of 1 second.

I cant believe that even CNN would hire Spitzer to do a show on politics. Even for a lib, what credibility does he bring? Not surprised though that Parker would accept being on TV with him. Her views and standards as a rino are by definition for sale.

And when this latest CNN debacle is flushed, the news this morning is that they are trying to recruit Katie Couric to save them. Really, the execs must be on crack.

More likely just some bad Hopium.

In their new spring lineup, look for this show to be followed by OJ&Katie.

I kinda feel sorry for Parker-a sweet, Southern girl who long ago sold her soul for fame. Lots of Southern men have done the same (Willie Morris and Howell Raines come to mind), but it seems much sadder to see a woman do it.
