Spitzer to Parker: Wham, bam, thank you ma'am!

Sam Schechner of the Wall Street Journal scoops that CNN is considering dropping Kathleen Parker from "Parker Spitzer."  So I guess it will just be "Spitzer"?   

The Cable Gamer reckons that this story is a strong hint to Parker to quit.  That is, say that she wants to spend more time with her family, yadda yadda.   Say anything, in fact, because quitting--along with a hush-money settlement--is a much more dignified way to leave the air than being publicly fired.

The mystery for TCG is why CNN is so in love with Spitzer.   Yes, he's smart, but he's gross, and at least some kind of lawbreaker--having been forced to resign as governor of New York less than three years ago.    But evidently sexual immorality is no big deal to the CNN Manhattan crowd, and because it's no big deal to them, they can't see why it's a big deal to the folks in flyover country.   But to TCG, that's the real reason the show is bombing: It's him, not her.

So they get rid of Parker and keep Spitzer.  Go figure.
