This is who we elect!

Linda Rosenthal

(I write "we" in the general sense.)

It's very difficult to write about this woman without coming off as a mi­sogynist and/or an anti-Semite, but her public display of stupidity has me on the edge of both, simmering for the past ten weeks.

In March, NYS Assemblywoman Linda Rosenthal (D-Man­hat­tan and representing most of the upper West Side) intro­duced legislation to prohibit anyone under 12 years-old from entering a gun show in New York, saying:

"Children should be learning to read and write, not to shoot a firearm."

First, where is the legislative finding that such a law ad­dresses a need?

Ms. Rosenthal has obviously never been to a "gun show," #2, and, #3, how exactly is this bill going to reduce "gun violence" or promote firearms safety?

Here's the deal: you don't have to like guns, but if you're going to rail against them and those of us who have them, at least know what you're talking about.

One would think her district is the picture next to the definition of "gerrymandering."

What are you talking about, Andrew? Do you even know?

I would think so; I've bordered this district for decades and know many of these players personally. If you knew the buildings on each of those blocks you'd know what was "cut out" from a logical squared district. The UWS is known as very democratic, very liberal. You can actually map it to the building the Republican "stronghold" (sarcasm: it does not exist here) on the UWS.

I'm sure this is all very clear and coherent to you, Andrew... it's not to anyone else!
