I haven't really been paying attention as much as I should, but this election seems to be everybody against Christine Quinn.

When he wins, I look forward to the same level of outrage and indignation that accompanied the disgraced Mark Sanford's political rehabilitation.

Wow did you guys realize Anthoney Weiner's last name is a euphamism for penis? I bet we could make all kinds of jokes about that. Good thing he's relatively new on the scene, or else I bet those jokes could get old, fast.

Outrage and indignation??  All I heard was a lot of laughter.

I expect the same.  Expect?  Hell, we're getting it right now.

I guess you can't hear it over the sound of your whining.

DId Weiner spend public money to finance affairs?  If not, I will just regard him with simple contempt.

Or completely abandon his post as Governor of his State without warning and without leaving any contact information so he could go bang his mistress in another country and then return to campaign on a family values and responsible government platform...

All I'm hearing so far is endless penis jokes and double entendres. I'm not hearing any, "Geeze, cant we do any better than  that pervy weirdo narcissist?"

Mark Sanford ABANDONED HIS DUTIES, used taxpayer money to fly to Argentina, and lied about his whereabouts. His conduct since then has been nothing but sleaze, AND he's part of the party that prizes itself on allegedly being all about 'Family values'.

Weiner tweeted a picture of his clothed junk.

One of these things is more severe than the other.

Actually, a lot of us are upset because he's turning this thing into a joke. He's a joke.

In fact on Viewpoint, the democratic liberal panel wished far more qualified people were running.

A popular joke with democratic New Yorkers.

And this is something you heard a lot of with Sanford?  Do you live in SC or something?  All I heard were endless jokes about hiking trails and debating cardboard cutouts.  I missed the critical introspection.

It's sad how Weiner who didn't even have sex with someone outside his marriage gets all this shiat while people who have like McCain, Newt, Limbaugh, Vitter, etc., people don't make a big deal about it.

A) Weiner didn't even have sex with anyone!!
B) He also didn't use corporate funds for it

The two are not even close.

Drudge has been pretty on the balls with his Weiner puns (punis?) lately.  Let's see what he has today.

Weiner's lead peters out...

Huma gathering 'Women for Weiner'...

Yep, he doesn't disappoint.

James!: I haven't really been paying attention as much as I should, but this election seems to be everybody against Christine Quinn.


there's a group called "Anyone But Quinn" running ads against her. she is being punished, rightfully so, for leading efforts to alter the city's constitution to allow Bloomberg to run for a third term as mayor. After Bloomberg won again, the city council changed the constitution again so no one else could run for a third term. scumbaggery

I hope its not Bill Thompson either. He's competent, but has the personality of a brick wall.

Joe Lhota is the only candidate that isn't a farktard. He has proven he can get shiat done.

So obviously my fellow new yorkers won't vote for him.

As a Democrat living in NYC let me just say:  IT WAS A JOKE ALREADY WITHOUT HIM~!

If anything, Weiner seems to be one who (other than the clothed jumk pics) doesn't look like a farking sham.

In fact on Viewpoint, the democratic liberal panel wished far more qualified people were running.

You can say this with just about any race for any political office in the country:  Take Wisconsin, for example.

he is a republican that can't carry Staten Island, thanks to his hiking of the VZ bridge toll to $15. he also wants to bring back the commuter tax, which is basically taxation without representation.

Lhota's sin is that he's using Guiliani's old political network to run;  Guiliani is a synonym for "hypocrite" in the city.

Oh fark no~!  Bill Thompson is as competent as Mike "You're doin' a heckuva job, Brownie!" Brown.  He's been a farking joke, is a farking joke and always will be a farking joke.  The fact that he almost won the last time he ran said more about Bloomberg running for a 3rd term than about Thompson's "competence".

I was unaware of the commuter tax thing (which I assume is when people that don't live within city limits pay 1% of their paycheck to the city). A lot of big cities do this. The way the infrastructure in this city is crumbling, plus the other budget shortfalls, I'm failing to see why the commuter tax is a bad idea. If you can afford to take metro-north in every day (or park) for work, you can afford a 1% commuter tax. Plus, you would think New Yorkers would prefer a commuter tax since it wouldnt affect them, as opposed to their MTA rates going up, or services being cut. Since it appears that you live in Dumbo, I'm just curious why someone like you wouldn't support that if it went to fixing some of this city's many problems. Not being snarky... serious question.

As for the tolls, this city doesn't need any more farking cars. I have no sympathy for people who chose to have a car, or drive into the city regularly, so raise the tolls even higher for all I care.

I agree with this; strangely.  You'd think that people from out of town who use public transportation or bridges owned and operated by the state/regional transportation authority wouldn't have a problem actually paying to keep said PT or bridges from falling apart.

Basically, what's more important to you out-of-towners: paying for a bridge that never breaks down with your taxdollars or complaining about a bridge that you don't pay for?

Because you already get double income taxed if you live out of state, and it's the tolls/fares that are supposed to pay for infrastructure upkeep.

commuters already support infrastructure through mass transit fares and tolls.

you have no sympathy for the hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers that don't have access to a subway or decent bus service? Most express buses stop running by 6:00pm, barely halfway through rush hour.

what about businesses that perform deliveries by cars/trucks? they don't have a choice at all.  think about that when your grocery prices go up again
