Dems supporting Reps

THE NEWS BLOG has a great post about why Democrats are supporting A republican Mayor who may have been a RINO when he started but has demonstrated he is a true Republican lacking in governing skills since his election.

So Kos! A rose by any other name is still a rose. You say NARAL, I say Democrats! Tomato Tom-ah-to, let's call the whole thing off!

Asking why is a start but election day is right around the corner. Dems are flocking towards Bloomberg! Ferrer is not a bad candidate, he talks tough, he talks left, and he talks about really good things. So why not support him?

The answer is simple, NY is a crazy place and corruption is rampant, so you always want to be on the side of the winner, even if the winner is a perceived looser. When that winner is white, rich, and can buy his way into office, well you gotta get behind him. Cuz if he wins, he's gonna fuck you over if you don't support him. Your issue project will be dead in the water if you backed the other guy.

I dunno why Democrats aren't supporting Ferrer, but it must be time to kill these Republican supporting single-interest-groups Democrats right?!

UPDATE: For the record, NARAL backed Bloomberg. Why? See above re: corruption, but it doesn't mean that they suck and should die.
