And just FYI in 2008 Staten Island went for McCain/Palin and has a Republican Borough President. Bloomberg is really hurting people in need who aren't as liberal as he is for a damn race.
Youre right, this is not at all funny. People are cold, hungry and desperate and this blooming asshat takes the only lifeline, not to mention the police resources, to make a race happen. I’d love a list of companies sponsoring this event.
Who said this was funny? I’m not talking about Staten Island - but NYC and Bloomberg. I guess they did elect Rudy though. I’d lay odds that Rudy wouldn’t have diverted the food and generators for a marathon.
“And just FYI in 2008 Staten Island went for McCain/Palin and has a Republican Borough President.”
Which is why Bloomberg is diong this. For people like Nurse Bloomberg and The Won, it is not enough to reward those that support you. You must also punish those who do not.
It’s funny in a heartless sense because elections have consequences and the New Yorkers have elected that blooming-idiot several times now. His stupidity and ego are now on full display. How or why he ever self identified as a Republican is beyond me.
There should be some way that the national parties can eject, expel, excommunicate those whose standards are diametrically different from the party itself.
