You just have to LOVELOVELOVE New York State, and the crazy dysfunctional relationship they have with politicians.
No where else in our great country can you reinvent yourself with such an sweeping disregard of character, or even, viable residency.
First Lady, Hilary Clinton, moved to Chappaqua, New York (for about a week) so that she could be given (excuse me:) elected to a Senatorial seat, by which to parlay into Secretary of State, so that she can run for President with more options then ‘Stand By Her Man’ playing at her acceptance convention.
And Elliot Spitzer is running for State Comptroller because it’s as close to the ‘top’ as he can get nowadays, unless you count that time with ‘Client #9″.
But, the all time greatest reinvention, has got to be Anthony Weiner, attempting to garner enough signatures to be officially put on the ballot for Mayor of NYC (because being Mayor of Creepy Tweets to strange young women asking for confirmation of your big package wasn’t creepy enough).
And ya know the C-R-A-Z-Y thing?
They will all succeed.
Every damn one of them.
Because NY loves a live performance, starring forlorn, misunderstood, down-on-their-luck, stalwart, ethical characters…
