Random Thoughts: New York Class Warfare

I had mentioned in a previous post my dislike of the “class warfare” our party goes through at times, putting the “champagne crowd” vs. the “beer crowd.” When I decide who I vote for, it’s going to be the candidate who is heavy on policy and not on catch phrases.

So I found this quote from NY Senate candidate Bruce Blakeman amusing, “They don’t want somebody sitting in an ivory tower and telling them what to do from the 20,000-foot altitude. They want somebody who came up through the grassroots level like I came up who understands and relates to them.”

I would also argue that going on your third decade of politics and being anointed by Al D’Amato doesn’t quite qualify as coming up through the grassroots.
