Coming Soon To Albany

27 Apr

As the long slog of budget negotiations drones on and legislators get feistier by the day, how long is it until the Albany Senate or Assembly chambers devolves into this?

In the Ukrainian legislature, this tomato, egg, and smoke bomb tossing incident ultimately escalated to physical confrontations.  All over a proposed agreement to let Russia use a shipping port on the Black Sea.  It’s not like they had a $9,000,000,000 budget deficit to fix…

Carl Paladino is sitting somewhere, stroking a teabag and thinking this is the way it ought to be.

The lesson, as always is IN UKRAINE, GOVERNMENT PROTESTS YOU!

    You have it all wrong.  The Ukranian egg-throwing parliament displays genuine partisanship and palpable outrage at bad policies and politicians.  

    In Albany, they’re all the same bucket of shit.

    This might be a good way to help balance that $9,000,000,000 deficit, auction off chances to hurl rotten eggs at the politician of your choice. I’d buy one, wouldn’t you?

    “Bring people.” Now, where did I put those eggs?
