A good night for incumbents in NYC. Democrat, or otherwise.

So much closer in the Mayoral race than expected.  If only Thompson had won - he is such a good man and would have been an amazing Mayor.  I was shocked by all the negative ads by Bloomberg trashing Bill Thompson - shocked and offended.  He could have just run positive ads touting his record, which has a number of accomplishments - he did not need to slander someone.

I am sad to see the loss by the two Democratic Asian council candidates, Yen Chou and Kevin Kim.  I know them both well and was looking forward to seeing them in the Council.

Frankly hardly worth the click.
Speculations. But a cute little cartoon.
