Bluto, Buddy the Elf, and the Burgermeister Meisterburger!

As I was watching tv last night I flipped back and forth between shows during commercials to catch up on the NYC Mayoral debate. It was a fiesty one as both candidates went back and forth at each other. Joe Lhota was clearly the aggressor, as he is getting bludgeoned in the polls and repeatedly attacked front runner Bill de Blasio. With only a few weeks to go before the election I think he and his team are getting a bit desperate to drum up support. Politics as usual!

Maybe it’s just me, but Joe strikes me as an angry bully with no sense of humor. He kind of reminds me of this guy –

Spitzer and Weiner – NYC Post Election Career Choices!

npbra

Well, we here in NYC sure dodged a close one when it came to the recent elections. Voters on this day had a multitude of bad choices to filter through and hoped the best candidates would turn out on top. It was like voting for the best of the worst, and hoping we did not become a total mockery in front of the rest of the country. It was bad enough we had a bunch of derelicts and sexual devients on the tickets this time around, and for awhile it looked like a few of them might win! Good thing the public came to their senses and escorted these idiots out of their political careers by choosing the better candidates for those positions. Now you just have to wonder where these wackos will end up, and what their next career paths will be. I have a few suggestions that come to mind…….

If the NYC Mayoral Candidates were Star Wars characters…..

corny-funny

In a city a long time ago, in an election far, far away…..

It was a period of political war.

Evil candidates from all walks of life, striking from hidden bases, ethnic backgrounds, sexual likes, and levels of wealth, have won their first victory against the fair citizens of NYC.

During the battle, Rebel spies managed to steal secret votes and endorcements of the Mayor’s office ultimate weapon against large sugary sodas, the BLOOMBERG STAR, an armored municipal building with enough power to destroy the entire city. The Naked Cowboy. Or, gasp, New Jersey!

Pursued by the candidates’ evil agents, the citizens race to the election booths this week, hoping to place their votes that will elect the right person who can save us all, and restore freedom to our great city…..  Continue reading If the NYC Mayoral Candidates were Star Wars characters…..

The 2013 NYC Mayoral Debates. Let the fun begin!

3v9y7nAs I viewed this past week’s NYC Mayoral debate I could not help but envision it going a bit differently than what I was actually seeing and hearing. After all, it was a bit of high drama mixed in with Saturday Night Live satire and a touch of Three Stooges tomfoolery. I fully expect our next mayor to take his or her oath of office in a clown suit!

Here’s my take on it –

“Welcome to the Democratic Mayoral Debates! Let’s get ready to ruuuuumble! We appreciate all the candidates being here to discuss their platforms and proclaim to the voting public why they should be the next mayor of New York City. God help us. This forum will be broken up into questions that are selected by a group of reporters, call ins from those watching, and also from those following via social networking.” Continue reading The 2013 NYC Mayoral Debates.
