I saw a little of it.  I thought "Rents Too High" was Samuel L. Jackson in disguise.  A caller to NY1's recap referred to the female candidate as "the chick with the blonde hair" - what else would you call her? 

The "debate" didn't change my mind - I'm voting for Cuomo.

For the first time, I am now conflicted on who I am voting for. I was solidly in the Libertarian column, but how do you turn down an opportunity like this:

He was like a charachtor from a Saturday Night Live sketch.     

He was funny, but him and the ex-prostitute did not belong in the debate.

I wonder why he wore gloves during debate.

I'm still with Cuomo, who will be amazing, but loved McMillan of the Rent is TOO DAMN HIGH Party (though I hear he's got issues concerning anti-semitism, so while I find his presentation entertaining, I have never been able to vote for him).

Yes, but Jimmy McMillian didn't do anything to cause the subprime banking crisis:

So at least he has that going for him.

And, at least to my knowledge, he never played Marilyn Monroe to the hooker screwing, abusing police force governor Elliot Spitzer like Andy did:

So nope, still going for the rent is too damn high guy. He may screw up royally in the future, but Andy's got it on his resume right now.

It is best to vote for Cuomo, he is better than anyone, even the New York Post endorsed Cuomo.

It should have been Paladino and Cuomo.     The ex-madam is just being vindictive, and rent party guy is just nuts,or out to make money.  I can see Charles Barron (who I like being included, since he is legit and qualified.     The rest were a joke.  Libitarian guy was good at times, but he twice took unneccssary pitshots at Paladino, showing he is just out to be liked, going way the wind is blowing. Not a true libitarian to me.

I agree with Sweeer here, minus the endorsement of Rent is Too Damn High guy.

I simply do not trust Andrew Cuomo.  As HUD Secretary he was a huge cheerleader for subprime mortgages, not sure that I can blame him for the entire thing, I think both parties failed there.  But, he was a big part of it.

I also remember something about $59 billion being lost under Cuomo's reign at HUD.  He didn't even investigate the loss of that money.  It just disappeared. 

His support of President Obama's atrocious Race to the Top is disappointing.  The last thing we need at a time when there are huge state budget cuts is to have to compete with one another for cash.  It's a pathetic way of treating education.

I also doubt that Cuomo is someone who has the average working and middle class in mind.  His campaign contributions include more than a thousand donations of $10,000 or more, including one of $55,000 from a parking lot.  Yes, there was a donation that was actually made by a parking lot.  Sketchy, no?

I am voting for Warren Redlich, the Libertarian candidate.  To me, he is the strongest candidate, socially and economically.

I'm going totally off topic here to say I read your blog about your little Nugget, and it's totally charming!  You're a really good writer and it sounds like a great start to a future book.  :-)
