The Gateway (Burning Pants Edition)
Given the failure of Vito Lopez's real political opponents to mount a write-in campaign for a credible candidate, Republican Richy Martinez looked to be the only Republican (other than those who cast a vote in the legislature for same sex marriage, or are running against a member of the Barron family) who was a sure-shot for a Gatemouth endorsement.
"He seems like a genuine guy looking to help the community any way he can,"
UPDATE: Martinez later said he's really running, but his honesty is slightly less credible than Mitt Romney's. WNYC News Blog - Lopez Opponent Backpedals: I Won't Drop Out of Race http://www.wnyc.org/
In a new low, even for him, hate-exploiting slimeball bag of excrement and smegma David Storobin cites the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) in opposition to a Mosque.
In reality, The ADL is the founding force behind "The Interfaith Coalition for Mosques” a group whose purpose the ADL describes as "…to assist Muslim communities who are being denied permission to build mosques in their neighborhoods."
If I have this right, in the great mind of constitutional scholar David Storobin, the free exercise clause of the constitutional is a wonderfully elastic provision, under which:
1) If you are an ultra-Orthodox Jew, the government has no compelling interest in informing you about the scientifically determined consequences of a medical procedure so that you can make your own choices, fully informed.
2) If you are a modern Orthodox or non-Orthodox Jew, the government has no right to inform you about the scientifically determined consequences of a medical procedure so that you can make your own choices, fully informed, even though, if you had knowledge of how that procedure was to be performed, you would find that it violated your own religious scruples.
3) If you are a Muslim, the same government has the power to block you from building a House of Worship, even if you have complied with all applicable government regulations.
When the Board of Elections posted all but one (Restler/Olechowski) of the primary results on Wednesday, I thought I was the only one who noticed Simcha Felder's write-in campaign pulled off a victory against on the ballot David Storobin in the Conservative Party primary for State Senate in SD 17.
I was saving the news for use as part of my regular post-primary results analysis piece that I intended to post this weekend.
Obama: Now, it will be interesting to see what the guy who was playing Mitt Romney yesterday will say about foreign policy...
