Good for you Stew.

Like Lazarus. (or Jesus?)

You have arisen. :)

Or Lucy, ready to pull the football away from Charlie Brown.

It's not a baseball game, being a good sport about losing. He lost because he is a key player in why the whole system is not working. Legal corruption. Just like how deBlasio does everything legal - doesn't mean he's doing it morally. How far is a car salesman from a politician? No offense to car salesmen.

One comment: when I moved here seven years ago, I went in and asked if they could make regular deliveries of  cat food and litter. They said no, they do not deliver. So I ordered from Chewy.com. Why should I have to shlep heavy boxes of cat food and litter on a regular basis when I can have them delivered by Chewy or Amazon or any number of other companies? This may have been one factor that led to their demise.

I don't get the hatred towards this guy.  He lost.  OK.  He isn't a convicted criminal, like Monserate, nor did he form a coalition with the Republicans, like Peralta.  So he wants to run again after a loss.  So what.  Let him run again.

In an overwhelmingly Democratic area like ours, the two party system becomes irrelevant. The real election happens in the primary. And when the county party wields its power and influence to suppress any challenger that is not aligned with their donors, then, that's not a democracy. Crowley's voting record in congress was OK. But, locally the people he has supported over the years allowed for the piece meal sale of the boro, pushing the kind of LIC style development further and further into Queens. Empty condos that hide foreign money resulting in less affordability for middle and low income New Yorkers.

He did not take a stand against Peralta. He stood by him. So, that is an indication of what kind of moral compass he has. He's an affable guy. That's what an effective politician is. It's just about what kind of impression an individual is left with not what they actually go and do.
