New York’s Extraordinary Government

Let me briefly summarize the state of New York’s government.

As I write, the Senate is in disarray due to a coup. The Republicans were ousted in the last election after holding that chamber for 40 years. Eight months later two Democrats allegedly switch sides and dump their party in the name of “reform” but no one can decide if the vote was legal. And they are actually fighting over who has the keys to the Senate chamber.

Our governor was ousted in a prostitution scandal. Our new governor has approval ratings so low you need a shovel to find them, largely due to his fiasco in trying to replace Senator Clinton.

Our judiciary has sued the governor and the legislature because they haven’t had pay raises since the days of the flood.

So the only thing left to do is make fun of New Jersey.

  1. The government has so much going on that you can’t really tell whose interest they are pursuing.

  2. Not even discernable if it is self-interest. Perhaps it is just fight over who holds the key.
