Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way

It's the economy, stupid

Hey, Barry, remember that time when you called John McCain up and asked him to join forces with you to issue a bipartisan statement on the economic crisis? Remember how John then turned around and made an announcement intimating that this renewed bipartisan spirit was his idea (and invoked 9/11 just for kicks)?

Then remember how John used the opportunity to pull the fire alarm right before the midterm — er, debate? All right after you called John up and offered to reach across the aisle to show Americans that both candidates have our best interest at heart? Remember that?

Well, that was stupid, Barry. Don’t do it again. Just as there is no crying in baseball, there is no true bipartisanship in an election. I hope you’ve learned your lesson.
