Banks! Whammo! Housing! Kapow!

Judge Sidney Stein hammered Eliot Spitzer with a brutal right-left combination. Spitzer, according to the dual rulings, cannot trump the Office of the Comptroller in banking regulations and has to defer to the Clearing House Association in the housing lender realm.

Licking his wounds, Spitzer also dropped the remaining four counts of the 29 he brought against with Theodore Sihpol. A jury acquitted Siphol of the first 25 charges in June.

Spitzer’s lifetime record against Sihpol: Zero wins, zero ties, twenty-nine losses.

Too bad The Spitz didn’t nominate Harriet Miers.
