Chris Christie, The Governor?

NEW YORK — November 6, 2013. Yesterday’s election saw Chris Christie re-elected governor of New Jersey, Bill de Blasio elected NYC mayor, and Staten Island City Council Member Debi Rose re-elected. What tied it all together was the fact that the winners didn’t have to wait long to hear the results of their respective races: Christie, de Blasio, and Rose all won in landslides. Here, for your viewing pleasure, are some loose ends.

Following her loss to Chris Christie, Barbara Buono lashed out at fellow Democrats and what she called “good old boy machine politics”:
“The Democratic political bosses, some elected and some not, made a deal with this governor. They didn’t do it for the state. They did it out of a desire to help themselves.” [1]

Shocked to hear about allegations of corruption in The Garden State, NY Dada reached out to former Atlantic City treasurer Enoch Thompson (Republican) who declined to comment.


Mark Macron, Mayor of Pripyat?

Across the Kill Van Kull from New Jersey, Republican darling and City Council candidate (District 49) Mark Macron was soundly defeated by incumbent Debi Rose. A poorly placed and unnamed / unreliable source tells NY Dada that Macron is considering running for mayor of Pripyat in the Ukraine. Macron’s campaign for the New York City Council appeared to center around his fondness for ferris wheels. Pripyat has a ferris wheel and, in the wake of Chernobyl, a very small electorate. Odds are Macron could run unopposed.

NEW YORK (Borowitz Report) — Political observer and satirist (if that isn’t redundant these days) Andy Borowitz “reported” on two recent developments that may be of interest to NLN readers:

On April 3, Borowitz revealed that “the Supreme Court decided today that annual physicals were unconstitutional and should be replaced by random strip searches conducted by the nation’s police.”

On April 5, Borowitz reported that “In yet another public relations setback for the beleaguered cruise industry, Somali pirates today said they would no longer board cruise ships, citing ‘unsafe working conditions.'”

[ There are some pundits who believe that Andy’s work is fictitious but this reporter is of the opinion that more fact checking goes into a single piece by Borowitz than the entire body of work produced by Fox News. — Editor ]
