Only a day... away...

Tomorrow's the day, election season 2005. There are a few notable elections being held, on the east coast the governor of New Jersey is up for grabs, and across the bridge its mayor of New York City.

I don't have much comments on the NJ gubernatorial race other then Fox 5 New York (bias implied) feels that the ad that uses John Corzine's ex-wife may damage his chances of getting elected. I find it hilarious that his opponent would sink so low, and as if the words of probably the most biased person against Corzine to comment about him.

Corzine summed it up by saying "I think it speaks more about him then about me." Amen to that brother.

As for the race for mayor of New York City, the winner, uh I mean the current mayor, Michael Bloomberg, currently has a 30 point lead. The loser, oh I'm sorry, his opponent, Fernando Ferrer, still has yet to establish what his platform is other then he's not Michael Bloomberg.

OK, Im not a fan of Michael Bloomberg, his attitudes on civil rights is appalling, but at least I know where he stands, at least I know what I am getting, and he has proven to be not a bad mayor.

Fernando Ferrer? I have no clue what he stands for, to be honest, I'm not sure he does either. I missed the debates, I intended to watch them but no one really seems all that interested in them. Did anyone watch them?

So far the impression I've gotten is that Ferrer is running on the "I'm not Bloomberg" platform, and I've yet to meet anyone who's voting for him (which aren't many) who are voting for him for any other reason then he's not Bloomberg.

Not a strong position, especially since Bloomberg isn't as bad as Ferrer would have you believe.
