2005_04_pintailondonkey.jpgWell, we can at least say that the mayoral race this year is good for uncomfortable laughs at the candidates' expense. After yesterday's interesting NY Times article about campaign year gaffes politicians haven't been able to shake and thereby lost elections, Gothamist is eager to see what else should happen. For instance, yesterday was supposed to be a good day for the embattled Fernando Ferrer, as there was a press conference announcing State Comptroller Carl McCall's support. But it turned kinda sucky when it became a discussion about Ferrer's Amadou Diallo shooting remarks - McCall made it clear he disagreed with Ferrer on that note. The Daily News' Juan Gonzalez thinks the political journalists are confusing the issue because Ferrer never did flip-flop, but it almost seems too late to argue that.
