Spitzer Hires Veteran Obama Flak Amid Rumors of Affair

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013

On Monday, the Eliot Spitzer campaign announced it had hired Lis Smith, former Director of Rapid Response for Obama’s reelection, as a spokesperson. It is the second Obama campaign veteran Spitzer has hired for his political comeback race for NYC Comptroller. Sources have told Breitbart News the staffing up of PR specialists is due to growing rumors that Spitzer is engaged in an affair with a married woman. 

Spitzer was forced to resign as Governor of the Empire State after revelations surfaced that he was a frequent client of a high-end prostitution network. His recently announced run for city Comptroller was meant to be his political comeback, assuming an office that would have wide discretion over the city’s pension fund investments with Wall Street firms. 

The rapidly deflating fortunes of Anthony Weiner’s mayoral candidacy and new rumors that Spitzer has been caring on an illicit affair with a married woman, however, threaten his comeback. One person with first hand knowledge of the impending Spitzer scandal told Breitbart news, “While the New York Post has reported that Silda [Spitzer's wife] will be filing divorce after the general, now with Weiner’s sinking implosion and attention turned to Spitzer, Silda may very well be able to serve Elliot the papers the day after he loses the primary.”

“I hope Elliot rolls up his black socks, it is going to be a bumpy ride.”

Spitzer’s chief opponent in the race is Manhattan Burough President Scott Stringer. Stringer passed on the Mayor’s race to run for Comptroller in a deal reportedly brokered by US Rep. Jerry Nadler. Recent polling has shown Stringer narrowly trailing the better-known Spitzer.

“The Quinnipiac poll, which has a long track record of accuracy in New York races, is great news for Scott Stringer,” New York political consultant Sam Nunberg told Breitbart News. “With the Spitzer media onslaught, he only maintains a small edge.”

“Scott is well-known in New York and his base of support is much more likely not only to continue to increase but most importantly turn out on primary day,” Nunberg added. “Plus, he has a long track record with the unions. Elliot’s campaign narrative is also short sighted.  His first set of campaign TV ads was the mea culpa.  But Scott is also well-financed and will be able to saturate TV and radio with contrast ads reminding all primary voters of Spitzer’s hypocritical malfeasance.”

Spitzer’s hiring of Lis Smith is a clear sign he expects the campaign to get very rocky ahead of the September primary. She is famous for aggressively challenging negative news stories about her candidates. Forbes Magazine reported last year:

The Obama campaign’s director of rapid response, Lis Smith, is not afraid to take the gloves off on Twitter. She uses her feed to, well, rapidly respond to the news. Smith also gets points for interacting. She often mentions others in her tweets and sometimes gets into multiple tweet disputes with people she disagrees with, which are always fun to watch.

There are other curious aspects to Spitzer’s hiring of Smith. There is a certain element of simpatico. We will leave that discussion for another day.

Save your tabs and Panorama tab groups in Firefox 4

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013

Firefox 4 save tabs

When Firefox 4′s tab grouping tool, Panorama, had its keyboard shortcut changed to the finger-breaking combo of Ctrl+Shift+E, we thought Panorama would get dropped before FF4′s final release — but, thankfully, it made the cut!

If you’ve used Firefox 4 and Panorama, you might have noticed that Mozilla’s new browser doesn’t always save your tab groupings when you close the browser — a bit of a pain, if you spend a long time setting up the perfect groups! This is tied into the removal of the ‘Save and Quit’ dialog box — and enabling Panorama tab group saving is just a matter of re-enabling the Save and Quit dialog.

Open a new tab and head to about:config. Click through the warning and type ‘quit’ into the filter box. Double click browser.showQuitWarning to change its value to true (see image after the break). That’s it — now you’ll have the option of saving your tabs, and thus tab groups, when you close Firefox.

Scrabble Helper helps you improve your Words With Friends gameplay

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013


If you play Scrabble (or a scrabble-like game) from time to time, you may want to check out Scrabble Helper. This simple website is a godsend when you’re at a loss for words. Simply enter whatever letters you have, and the word you’d like to connect with. Scrabble helper comes up with a whole bunch of suggestions sorted by score.

The site lets you select one of five dictionaries – Scrabble International/US, Lexulous International/US, and Words With Friends. Some people might say this constitutes cheating — I think if the other side knows you’re doing it, it’s definitely not cheating. And it doesn’t take the challenge out of the game, because implementing Scrabble Helper’s suggestions and deciding which words you’d like to connect with still takes a fair bit of thought.

Very handy, though perhaps not one for the Scrabble puritans in the crowd.

CBS Bizarrely Wonders if Pope Francis is ‘Breaking With The Vatican’

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013

Monday's CBS Evening News offered the usual biased coverage of religion, and specifically, the Catholic Church, as it reported on Pope Francis' widely misrepresented remarks on homosexuals. Dean Reynolds' only talking head was a former priest who apparently "quit the priesthood…after he felt the Church intended to purge gays", and even wondered if the Pope was throwing out Catholic teaching: "Do you think he's breaking with the Vatican?"

Reynolds also hyped that the Roman pontiff offered a "potentially controversial position" with his recent remarks, when in reality, they are consistent with what the Catechism of the Catholic Church outlines. [audio available here; video below the jump]
