Sorry, but when I think about the things that make Charles Barron going to Congress worrisome, the way he dresses does not top my list. Would Charles Barron Tie One On (A Tie, That Is) In Congress, Or Stick With His Nehru Jacket? www.nydailynews.com

A big hand to Rory Lancman for being frank in saying that income of $106,000 should be subject to the Social Security Tax.
And thanks to Liz Crowley for finally clearing up my curiosity as to why so many Queens civic and political types regard her as an intellectual (perhaps not the best choice of words) lightweight.
Btw, where is Grace Meng on this issue? Crowley and Lancman disagree on raising taxes to fund Social Security | Capital New York www.capitalnewyork.com
When your Party's nominee comes from the only town on the wrong side of river in a district contiguous only by waterborne transit, and otherwise only accessible via a bridge with a half hour wait to cross, it is called "taking a dive"
Why would the Republicans do that?
Perhaps because the real headline of this link should be “Democrat turned Republican takes on Democrat turned de facto Republican.” Democrat-Turned-Republican Taking On Carlucci | City & State www.cityandstateny.com
Storobin takes over Kruger’s district office, offering continuity in representation.
Is he hoping for the opportunity to collection the cash-filled envelopes slipped through Kruger’s mail slot by people who haven’t heard the news?
Apparently, Storobin was encouraged to keep the office by the GOP leadership because the State already had a lease on the space.
I would hail this as a laudable effort by Dean Skelos to save the taxpayers a few grand, if Skelos weren’t wasting millions of taxpayer dollars subsidizing new superfluous and unemployable Rabbis for Borough Park.
One has to conclude that if Skelos really wanted Storobin re-elected, he would help him to locate an office where his new voters are. Storobin To Open District Office Next Week, Will Be Kruger’s Old Haunt | Sheepshead Bay News Blog www.sheepsheadbites.com
I don't understand why John Liu is so upset about the stories about Simcha Felder allegedly campaigning on taxpayer time.
Other young yeshiva graduates spend a year in Israel. The Tischler boys go right from their Bar Mitzvah to running for office.
Insanity doesn't run in the Tischler family; it gallops.
Poor Junior Boyland couldn’t go to the Stop and Frisk rally in DC, and had to stay in Williamstown.
Junior lost interest in the stop and frisk rally anyway, once he learned that the protest applied only to instances when the authorities lacked probable cause. Mr. Boyland Tries to Go to Washington politicker.com
Though he has yet to apologize for throwing the burning rag (he's only apologized for causing offense by throwing the burning rag), I'm glad David Segal found a job where I'm not contributing to his salary.
Where I come from, burning things down is generally regarded as a backward step.
Hopefully, no one who opposes the affordable housing they seek to build will take Mr. Segal as their example when deciding upon tactics. Ydanis’ Controversial Former Spokesman Lands A New Gig politicker.com
New corollary to Kinsley's Law:
Now, this is a classic “Kinsley gaffe”: a politician telling the truth as he sees it.

Not that it has ever lit a fire under the tails of lefties and socially liberal centrists before, but, just to put things in perspective, this year’s election is the rubber match for generational control of the Supreme Court. The End of 5-4 prospect.org
