5 Ridiculous Things That Happened During New York's Primary This Week
As you know, I could not blog about specific campaigns during the New York City primaries because I was working on one and am I'm not an idiot. That didn't stop me from really, really wanting to however. And there was MUCH to blog about. For example, an intern talking to the press (WHAT?) and the Weiner campaign firing back and calling her a "slutbag" (BIGGER WHAT?). Maybe it's because I couldn't write, but there were SO MANY things I wanted to write about. Here are 5 things that happened in the last week alone that I wanted to share with you:
1) Corey Johnson Ad on Grindr
2) Vito Lopez INSANE sexual harassment flyer
3) Lawrence O'Donnell's Anthony Weiner Interview
These final three stories involved Anthony Weiner for whom my schadenfreude steadily dissipated as his public breakdown went from gratifying to cringeworthy. However, I think this story actually makes Weiner look good. Like high schoolers hanging out with ugly people to appear more attractive, O'Donnell's hyper-aggressive line of questioning makes Weiner seem sane. He starts out with "What's wrong with you?" and it goes on from there.
4)Anthony Weiner not on the voter rolls
Time to go get glamorous and beautiful for our GOTV (Get Out the Vodka) party! I missed you guys!
