The Great Debate

Last night we watched the NY Governor's Debate. I have to say it was one of the most entertaining shows I've watched in a very long time. We watched the entire 90 minutes of the debate.

Sure, there were semi-normal candidates. Like Mr. Paladino, the Republican candidate. He didn't yell or swear at anybody. And during his closing statement, he claimed that he's not angry, just passionate about helping the state.

And the Democratic candidate, Andrew Cuomo. He's the son of a former NY State Governor. And the apparent "front runner". (Did you also know that he was dating Sandra Lee?? The Food Network Star and author of the Semi-homemade cookbooks...)

Then there was this guy. He's apparently from Syracuse. And he promised a government job for every unemployed person in the state.

This guy was our favorite candidate. He was well-spoken, intelligent and had the best ideas to fix the State of NY. He even had a great sense of humor.

Then there was a former "Madam". She was all about legalizing marijuana, gambling and prostitution. Her best line of the night... “Career politicians in Albany are the biggest whores in this state. I might be the only person sitting on this stage with the right experience to deal with them.” She might have a good point.

Then there was Jimmy McMillan. This guy stole the show. If you've watched the news today, you've probably heard about this guy. He ran on the platform of, you guessed it "Rent is Too Damn High". And that's really the name of his "party", and it's really on the ballot. He was also all for gay marriage and said “If you want to marry a shoe, I’d marry you.”

The best candidate of the night, in my opinion, was this adorable canine. She was running on the platform of "More treats for all dogs." She's getting my vote, on the cute factor alone.

Jenny has our vote too. If she doesn't mind moving I'll write her in for Mass. I think she'd do a better job than the choices we have.
