Co-host spittin' mad over Spitzer (Elitist Kathleen Parker Faux Conservative FAIL)
NY Post ^ | 12/1/10 | TARA PALMERI

Posted on 12/01/2010 4:42:05 AM PST by jimbo123

Eliot Spitzer's TV sidekick is so fed up with playing second fiddle to the hooker-loving ex-gov that she's threatening to walk, sources told The Post yesterday.

Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker actually stormed off the set of the "Parker Spitzer" show during a pre-taping a few weeks ago -- furious that her co-host is continually allowed to take charge of their nightly CNN chat-fest, the insiders said.

Although still fuming, Parker did return to wrap up the segment, they said.

But she's angry that the show's producers are allegedly doing nothing to play up her strengths on the ailing show, the sources said.

Maybe CNN will get Peggy Noonan to replace her.

Why do people keep comments in the title? Why not put them where they belong - in the comment box?

You can't play what isn't there, Kathleen.

I don’t know about anyone else, but half the time I wouldn’t open the article if it wasn’t for the added comments.

Who knew that Ms. Parker was really live on the set? Viewers (all 12 of them) thought it was a cardboard cutout sitting there while the vile Spitzer blabbed throughout the show.

The problem with being put in the spotlight, Kathleen, is that it quickly becomes evident that you are a big nothing. That’s why Spitzer is taking the lead, not because of any plot. Go back to obscurity where you belong. Sit at home in front of the TV and argue with it every time Sarah Palin comes on.

Actually I like a “quickie” comment in the title ... easier to know “what” it is about if you are scanning titles.

Moreover, when did the verb “to fail” become a noun? Is it too hard to type failure now?

Why would she want to play up here role in a show that sucks on a network that sucks?

I like the comments in the title. Done correctly it gives a hint at what’s really in the article.

Mad because she’s not getting enough attention, this reveals much about her dislike of Sarah Palin.

Co-host team for political show would work if: (1) both quite strongly hold opposite views, e.g., Hanity & Colmes, or (2) both hold similar views, e.g., all liberal talk-shows in ABC, NBC, CBS, etc. It won’t work if one holds strong view, the other holds kind of opposite view but very mushy (aka ‘moderate’). The one holding strong view would always be the dominant one.

We suspected with Parker’s Palin-bashing that it was all about getting attention for her. This confirms what she is all about. She is just like the women Spitzer used to pay for - she just sells herself for a different objective and a different currency - a journalistic prostitute, driven by the need to get a fix for her ego.

What sane woman would want to sit next to this goblin five nights a week, no matter how much the pay is? Regardless the show will be cancelled within two months - a test pattern would draw just as many viewers and is a lot cheaper to produce.

Strengths? Ailing compared to what? It started out in the toilet on a network that fights for 3rd place.

Parker is a nobody, but evidently has a huge ego. Without Spitzer Parker would have even less of an audience. Of course, it is hilarious that this show was put on the air at all. I can’t imagine that it will survive much longer, but it has been instructive in that it makes clear what poor judgment the media left has.

I read her columns every now and then and they suck. I don’t know why her on-air persona would be a big improvement.

Replace Parker with a mule carrying a box of rocks and the level of discourse will increase. When Elliot says something, pan the camera to the mule sucking its tongue or the rocks laying there and we’ll all get it.

She has no self-respect. Why would she team up with a guy who cheated on his wife and diddled a prostitute and was forced to resign in complete disgrace?

Because she can't hold a candle to Sarah Palin and she knows it.

Don’t really see what harm it does.

But let’s go ahead an highjack the thread and discuss something that really does not matter.
