NY State Senate Coup

The New York Senate managed to accomplish what the Virginia Senate failed to do. Virginia Senate Republicans managed to snag a Democrat recently to come over and at least caucus with the Republicans, forcing a 20-20 tie, with Lt. Governor Bill Bolling casting the deciding vote in the event of a tie. Unfortunately, the Democrats were tipped off by a Jeff Frederick tweet (on Twitter) and managed to foil the attempt.

New York State Democrats were not so lucky as Republicans managed to contain the operational security of the mission in New York and took over.

The Democrats are livid, especially Governor Paterson who said:

“I should be standing here talking to you about the issues that the people need Albany to address. Once again Albany’s dysfunction has raised its ugly head. I came here today to stand up for everyone in this state who still believes in a democracy — that there are perimeters in which we govern, that Albany can be more than the dysfunctional wreck it has become over the years. And I don’t care if the only one standing, but someone has got to stand up and say that this is wrong.

“The last two weeks of session is not the time when we conduct campaigns. It is not the time when we elect leaders. It is not the time for politics. It is the time for governance.”

It was unclear what dysfunction he was talking about. Perhaps the fact that the Democrats ran screaming from the chamber, turned off the lights and shut down the internet, forcing the vote to be taken in the dark.

Surely he was not referring to a bipartisan group of legislators who are watching the Democrats run people out of the state by taxing them into poverty?

The Republican resurgence is in motion.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
