New Yorkers have a few choices this November.




Quote:



Kristin Davis came out with some zingers during the New York Governors’ Debate at Hofstra University debate Monday night.

Calling career politicians “the biggest whores in the state,” she sparked laughter in the David S. Mack auditorium when she said, “I might be the only person on this stage with the right experience to deal with them.”

Davis also cited her own colorful past when talking about the MTA. She told the audience that “the only difference between the MTA and my former escort agency agency” was that her agency was better-run and always delivered the goods on time.

Davis, who already claims some ties to the governor’s office through her connection to the prostitution scandal which brought down former governor Eliot Spitzer, was easily the winner in the unofficial outre comments poll conducted in the media center.

Regardless of what people think of her, Davis markets herself on being the PA system for libertarians.

The former escort empress said the legalization of prostitution and marijuana could provide $2.5 billion in revenue to help close the budget gap.

“I’m a natural Libertarian,” said Davis, who also embraces gay marriage and the views of the National Rifle Association.

Possibly her brest line was when she said she would cut taxes to save jobs.

Well she nearly said that. What she did say was: “We need to cut taxes, otherwise businesses would leave faster than Paladino at a gay bar.”

That guy sits outside on his porch waving a cane and muttering at passerby, doesn't he ?

Seriously, though, can't exactly disagree with his stances there, and I liked the shoe line at the end . Sounds interesting, to say the least, will be curious to see how he fares in the election.

And Kristin Davis...well, she's definitely got a sense of humor, which I like. And with the exception of the NRA stance, I do agree with her beliefs overall. I think it's kind of amusing and says a hell of a lot about politics that we turn to former escorts who were involved in high-profile scandals to run our country better, but hey, if she can prove that she knows her stuff politically and does her job right, then go for it.

(I tried so much to avoid leaving room for perverted jokes in the above statements about her. But I'm sure you can find room for one somewhere )

Rent Is Too Damn High Candidate Doesn't Pay Rent
Updated 11:43 AM EDT, Wed, Oct 20, 2010

Your rent may be too damn high, but Jimmy McMillan's sure isn't.

The Vietnam vet stole the spotlight at the gubernatorial sideshow debate earlier this week, bellowing his campaign platform and party banner, "The rent is too damn high."

But McMillan's indignant pontification doesn't appear to stem from personal experience. As it turns out, he doesn't pay rent at all -- and hasn't done so since the 1980s, according to a published report.

McMillan missed payments on his $800-a-month one-bedroom apartment in Flatbush and his landlord allowed him to live rent free in exchange for maintenance work, reports The New York Times.

The 64-year-old retired postal worker dismissed questions about whether his own affordable situation cheapened his platform.

"It's not about my rent. It's not about me," McMillan told the Post, noting that rents have gone up steadily virtually everywhere else. "What about the children's future? Where will they stay?"

While the rent may not be all about him, the Internet's been flooded with McMillan buzz since his performance in the bizarre debate. He's a top search phrase on Yahoo.com and his mayoral campaign video from 2009 was the most played video on NBCNewYork on Tuesday (see above).

Along with the comedy, however, controversy has marked McMillan's campaign efforts over the years. He's been accused of posting anti-Semitic rhetoric on his website that blames Jewish landlords for the lack of affordable housing in Williamsburg.

$800 a month was too high?

He should have been evicted when he stopped paying rent.

Everything is too high because of government regulations and unfair taxes.

If you disgree, please state why you believe a big central government, that continues to infringe on your personal choices and continues to increase taxes on just about everything, is your idea of a good thing????

Should all regulation be removed? Will that put you in a safer less expensive rental home?

You were asked this before, but the answer you gave ended up being untrue. So how has the government infringed on your personal choices?

Am I imagining things or do my non-American peers pay way more in taxes and often higher rent?

My answer untrue?

I can't walk into my school cafeteria tomorrow
and buy a carton of whole milk.

Why was my answer untrue?
