New York Shitty Day Starter: Rage Against The Machine

Today’s the big day kids.

We, the people, get to choose between a jackass and an elephant plutocrat for mayor.

The 34th City Council district has an incumbent running against a puppet of her former mentor: the inimitable Vito Lopez.

Behold, the Davilamobile! As witnessed by yours truly yesterday on the Southside.

As the 33rd, well, we have this guy:

levin

Steve Levin. Another Lopez puppet.

Here’s a letter the Mister and I received from Mr. Levin last weekend.

When I searched the Gotham Gazette’s voter guide yesterday to learn what alternatives I had to Levin I got this:

gothamgazette

NO SHIT.

But if this is to be believed there will be someone running against Levin. Those of you who wish to vote in protest to Vito’s influence over/strong-arming our community might want to vote for Ms. Tretter.

Yes, this election will be tantamount to getting a colo-rectal exam: it sucks like hell, but you know you should do it.

You can do it

You can do it, New York Shitty!

P.S.: The lack of effective opposition against Levin (and my own ego and hubris) in this 33rd City Council race makes me feel behooved to run against him (and Vito) next time around.

My preliminary platform/platitudes are as follows:

  • I have lived in Greenpoint/33rd District longer than Levin.
  • You could choose worse.
  • I give a shit.

Unlike career/machine politicians I will not promise anything I cannot deliver.

Last Gasp: Remember to Vote Tomorrow!

Did you know Mike Bloomberg is running for mayor? If the numerous fliers and callers/hipster hitters of buzzers didn’t remind you of this fact maybe my answering machine (and inbox) will!

Just 24 more hours, dear readers, and it will be over.

I suspect I speak for many when I say I harbor no, zero, ZILCH enthusiasm regarding the upcoming election. Even though we, the voters, ostensibly have a “choice” the selection of candidates for the 2009 Mayoral Race strikes me as being tantamount to selecting between syphilis and gonorrhea. Either way you’re still sick.

Which brings me to a “write-in” candidate I discovered at the Lorimer Street entrance of the L train earlier today:

anarchy

NOBODY.
