Patriot Retort: Okay, some brief notes on the election results thus far. Then I’m going to bed.
I don’t know if you guys remember me telling you about a kook in my neighborhood that put out a homemade sign in 2016 that read:
“TRUMP IS A FASCIST AND MISOGYNIST AND RACIST”
She kept that sign up for months after Trump won.
Well, I found out about three or four weeks ago that this particular kook wasn’t just any old kook. She was the kook running against my squishy Republican Congressman John Katko.
You know, when I found that out, I wasn’t the least bit surprised. My whole neighborhood is far-Left crazy. And this kooky candidate, Dana Balter, is an SU professor. Lots of folks from SU live in this neighborhood since it’s only a short walking distance to the university.
This neighborhood is so deep blue, you’d think most of the people are oxygen-deprived.
The Balter lawn signs outnumbered the Katko lawn signs by …
Who am I kidding? There are no Katko lawn signs in my neighborhood. In fact, you have to drive out a ways from SU to see Katko signs.
I also told you about the SU student who lives in the 4-unit across the street from me. I mentioned him a couple months ago.
He has three poster-board-sized signs in his living room window.
One says: KATKO KIDNAPS KIDS
Another one calls Katko a COWARD. And the third one says something about Katko being the enemy of working people – I don’t remember exactly what it says. It’s nearly midnight and my brain isn’t working.
Any old how.
I’d venture to guess that I was one of only maybe ten or twelve people in my ward to vote for Katko today. But given the fact that Balter lives in this neighborhood, she has home court advantage.
Any old how, just a while ago, Fox News called the race for NY-24. And Katko beat Balter like a drum. more here
