This week's New York governor's debate was supposed to be a clash between Democrat Andrew Cuomo and Republican Carl Paladino. Instead, by some accounts, it turned into a "farce" in which independent candidates stole the show.
Among the highlights: Kristin Davis, a former prostitution madam, told jokes about brothels and gay bars. And Republican Paladino surprised the audience by actually walking off stage in the middle of the debate to use the bathroom. "When you gotta go, you gotta go," his campaign manager told the New York Times.
But the real show stealer was Jimmy McMillan of the Rent Is Too Damn High Party, who spoke repeatedly about the high cost of rent, which had made it difficult for families to pay their bills, put food on the table, and take care of themselves.
Note to Mr. McMillan: You are one colorful dude! The whiskers are magnificent! Your "The Rent's Too Damn High" philosophy is closer to the truth than most would like to admit if you'd drop that "the Jews" shit, and of course you're as crazy as a loon to most people. Kudos also for collecting the 15,000 signatures necessary to get on the ballot by yourself.
You ain't got a chance and I hope you win. The Jews'll wise ya up as soon as you're in.
Mr. McMillan has been endorsed by the AMI.
NY state a brothel in need of a madame – governor candidate
At their first debate on Monday, candidates for New York governor made the usual use of metaphor and cliche about the state’s economic woes.
But candidate Kristin Davis (go look at her logo! Whee!) took it a step further when she compared the state bureaucracy to a badly run brothel, and New York politicians to whores.
And she would know.
She sure would! From the look of this lady, she earned every dime she ever made the hard way. One NY politician at a time.
She hasn't got a chance either, of course, and I hope she wins too.
Most gubernatorial and other political 'debates' wouldn't have let these candidates participate because they're a distraction from the corporate message. I am so glad New York did. We all needed it.
If I were not already blessed by being a Californio, I'd wanta be a Noo Yawkah! They're just as crazy as we are.
