Oh, this is going to be a fun four years. Especially since I don’t work in the City anymore.
It really is a tale of two cities — this time with the tony Upper East Side getting the shaft!
Huge swaths of the city’s wealthiest neighborhood had been not been plowed by early Tuesday evening, leaving 1-percenters out in the cold, according to the city’s own map of snow-plower activity.
“He is trying to get us back. He is very divisive and political,” said writer and Life-long Upper East Sider and mom Molly Jong Fast of Mayor de Blasio.
Molly is, by the way, the daughter of Erica Jong, and is not particularly less liberal than is her mother. I mention this in case you were wondering whether we might have infiltrated a recon team into the UES: nope, that’s one pure my-ox-just-got-gored Democrat, there.
Come, I will conceal nothing from you. I know that many of you are thinking that the tweet below is the perfect response to this:
Maybe you asswipes shouldn’t have voted for him. http://t.co/ROhdY4HIeD

…and I admit: I agree. New Yorkers shouldn’t have voted for somebody whose life goal apparently is to get as close to actual Commie as possible without actually hitting the red line. But they did. Choosing to simply mock them for it, and never give them a hand to help get them out of the muck and the filth… well. It’s not moral, it’s not right, and it’s not even politically wise. I see far too many people on our side as it is apparently subscribe to the laughable delusion that modern liberalism is a 100% virulent and incurable memetic disease. It’s not. And acting as if it’s hopeless to change people’s minds runs perilously close to subscribing to despair.
And I don’t do despair.
