New York Republicans are having the gosh-darnedest time finding a replacement for swinish Rep. Vito Fossella (R-NY-13), who announced last week that he will not seek re-election. Fossella became a national punchline after being arrested for drunk driving in Virginia; statements he made to the police at the time brought attention to the existence of the family values Congressman's three-year-old love child in Alexandria.
A veritable Who's Who of Staten Island and Brooklyn Republicans are running like crazy from the race, giving excuses such as an antipathy for raising large sums of money.
These are politicians saying this, mind you.
Two more years for Speaker Nancy Pelosi, that's for sure. Thanks, Vito!
