Ding...

Sheldon Silver in disgrace.

...but unfortunately it'll be awhile before the "dong" is heard from Albany.

The "Ding" part of "Yip" Harburg's famous lyrics came today when long-time New York State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, arrested last week on federal corruption charges resigned the powerful position he seemed locked into for the past 21 years.

And the "dong" part? That'll be when Governor Andrew Cuomo goes as well!

Whether in handcuffs as with Silver, or just shame-faced and quietly like Eliot Spitzer in 2008, the only upbeat aspect of it is that his father didn't live to see it.
