Weld out.

Well, would you hire this man to be gov?

Trump mulling Albany run, say GOP sources

Republican sources said The Donald - who in 1999 toyed with the idea of running for the White House on the Reform Party line - is mulling a bid to persuade New Yorkers to hire him as their next governor.

Senate GOP leader Joseph Bruno tantalized reporters yesterday by declaring a wealthy mystery candidate is "thinking" about seeking the party's backing to replace Gov. Pataki.

Weld's Role at College Still Troubles Some in G.O.P.

Some New York Republican leaders are increasingly concerned that William F. Weld, a top Republican candidate for governor in 2006, could ultimately founder because of his past leadership of a bankrupt Kentucky college.

Several party leaders, including some who are influential in vote-rich counties, said that they were troubled by new revelations about his 10 months as chief executive of Decker College.

It doesn't really matter which one runs because Eliot Spitzer will filet either like a bluefish, but this is about as obvious as it gets: the state GOP wants Weld out and self-financed-rich-famous-flop-hair in. And most of all they want Weld out.

If only the Republican party were this pathetic in the rest of the country.
