New York Will Probably Get What It Deserves

This year's New York City Electoral Ballet is something of a farce, as disgraced Congressman (and purveyor of underwear bulge pictures) attempts to revitalize his failed political career by running for Mayor. He teas off against former disgraced New York State Governor Elliot Spitzer, who resigned after it became public knowledge that he was frequenting high dollar prostitutes. But wait, it gets better! Both Weiner and Spitzer are also being challenge by Kristen Davis, the "Manhattan Madam" who RAN the prostitution ring Spitzer frequented! She too is running for mayor! Love the choices New York?

Ed Morrissey's article at Hot Air has all the details, but the kicker is his final question to New Yorkers:

 If it’s possible to take any of this seriously, here’s a question for New York City voters.  Do you see elections as a way to make rational choices about public-sector leadership, or a platform for self-centered politicians to demand absolution for their past transgressions?  If it’s the latter, then this ballot is perfectly crafted for the occasion.  If it’s the former, voters in the city should make it clear that public service is about the public and not the bruised egos of those who broke trust when voters offered it to them earlier.
