In light of polls showing that most New Yorkers won't even show up to vote, 4 Democrats are still vying for The Right To Lose to Mayor Mike Bloomberg in the upcoming 2005 mayoral election. You've probably never heard of them, so I'll provide you with a little information on each: there's Fernando Ferrer (I think he has some important position up in the Bronx), Virginia Fields (she's Black), Anthony Weiner (I have no idea who he is) and Some Other White Guy.
Apparently, the race for The Right To Lose To Bloomberg is getting tight as the favorite, Ferrer, may not be able to get the 40% of the vote needed to avoid a runoff. Wouldn't THAT be....I don't know, kind of embarrassing??? But lucky for Ferrer, he just got an endorsement from pseudo-preacher and FBI informant Al Sharpton, so Ferrer will probably win the primary now since Black people love Sharpton so much! Of course, all of this is kind of ironic in a "liberal" town like New York City, where the President would be hard-pressed to get a vote, yet has seen a Republican in the mayoral seat for 12, going on 16 years now.
