CNN: D'Souza vs Spitzer

Former Democratic New York State Attorney General and Governor Elliot Spitzer is being touted as the new card in the hole for CNN.

This brash Lawyer who dishonored himself (and his wife) with his extra marital affairs with numerous prostitutes is now a part of the new face of CNN.

Frankly I don't get it....but non the less in one of his first show case episodes, Elliot Spitzer and Kathleen Parker interview Dinesh D'Souza on his new book 'The Roots of Obama's Rage'.

It's plain to see that Spitzer is eager to make an impression and so he goes on the attack early by declaring that Dinish is "nonfactual" in his book. He of course doesn't provide any legitimate examples that he isn't himself corrected on by Diniesh. At one point Dinesh has to remind Spitzer that Pakistan isn't in the Middle East (it's actually a part of Asia).

If it's a debate that Elliot wants I'm afraid his lawyer antics aren't going to hold up with the quick mind of Dinesh who is well versed in the art of the debate. He won't just answer the questions in a court room style of "just Yes or No". Dinesh was very polite despite the aggressive Elliot and he even has to control his amusement at the remedial antics of Mr. Spitzer.

Anyway, there are a few articles depicting Dinesh as a boob and Spitzer as phenomenal in his new role and that is portrayed as hope for the new program.

I think it's quite obvious that, in this episode anyway that Spitzer needs to do more homework. Parker herself is lost to the upstaging Elliot.
