New York City has a packed field running for mayor. Since we’re in the New York City media market, we know more about New York City politics than what’s going on in Trenton. New Jersey doesn’t really have its own media, which is a problem for a whole lot of reasons that aren’t relevant to this blog post. The race has been fascinating in part because there’s the whole Anthony Weiner angle and also because of the amazing use of campaign ads.
Bill deBlasio was a complete unknown until he started running ads that featured his awesome son.
The kid has a great Afro and seems very relatable. He reminds me of Jonah. Thanks to the kid, deBlasio is now a front runner and Afros are all the rage.
Christine Quinn is the establishment favorite. She’s been endorsed by all the major papers, as her ads make sure to point out. She tells us that we SHOULD vote for her. Nobody likes to be told who they SHOULD vote for.
The worst ad award has to go to Anthony Weiner. Look at his head bob and weave with the mute button on.
A vote for Weiner is a vote for Slytherin.
