Today is just brimming with news about gone, but not forgotten New York politicians. First, the people of the city learned that they will no longer be able to watch Eliot Spitzer’s cable television show, and now it’s been brought to our attention that Spitzer’s replacement in office, David Paterson, will teach a course for NYU freshmen this fall. It’s called “The Teachable Art of Governing.” [Insert joke about Paterson’s record here]. This kind of reminds us of Stanley McChrystal’s course on leadership at Yale.
We just hope Paterson’s students don’t take to doing impressions of him.
