2006_02_hospitalbedpan.jpgWell, that's just our working theory as Governor Pataki is sulking in his hospital room for yet another day. Doctors say that they are just monitoring his condition, to be sure an abscess doesn't form, but Gothamist's conspiracy think tank believes that New York Presbyterian Hospital is working with people who believe Albany and the governor have been shortchanging New Yorkers (in education, for starters). The NY Times suggests that NYPH hasn't been issuing as many press releases as the governor's previous hospital because "of his complications and the sometimes graphic coverage it has received." Talking about the governor's colon and its various functions is graphic? Hmm, while people talk about IBS all the time, but it's true, Gothamist never need to hear the words "bowel obstruction" with "Pataki" ever again.
