And speaking of heros, Corey Johnson, the speaker of the City Council, donned the robes of de facto mayor and took over where the real mayor was chatting up some auto workers in the Hawkeye state in order to elevate his now dismal, 0.2% rating in the polls. Johnson kept the city aware of what was going on and how to stay safe, doing the Mayor's job very competently and making a name for himself while under the gun. Photo Credit: coreyjohnson.nyc

You couldn’t make this story up. During last Saturday’s massive blackout on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, where tens of thousands were left in the dark, Mayor deBlasio was in …..Waterloo, Iowa, on his campaign for the Democrat Presidential nomination. Waterloo is a name associated with losers and that’s a more proper place for Hizzoner to dig his roots into rather than the Big Apple. DeBlasio’s response, at hearing the news, long distance, of this catastrophe, that he would stay the night munching on ears of campaign corn and return home the next day, nailed it for all New Yorkers.

He’s a goner for the nomination and he’s lost it as being respected as a devoted mayor of the city. At the time of his notification of the matter, neither he nor the Con Ed people had any idea of what the problem was nor just when they would get it fixed. It might have gone on for days. Yet Bubba Bill was content enough to wait hours to get home, leaving the mess to his underlings to handle. There are pictures of ordinary citizen, risking their lives, standing at major intersections, in pitch darkness, controlling traffic. They are the heroes of the night, not our mayor.

And speaking of heros, Corey Johnson, the speaker of the City Council, donned the robes of de facto mayor and took over where the real mayor was chatting up some auto workers in the Hawkeye state in order to elevate his now dismal, 0.2% rating in the polls. Johnson kept the city aware of what was going on and how to stay safe, doing the Mayor’s job very competently and making a name for himself while under the gun. A common NYC citizen, Nicole Gelinas of Hell’s Kitchen tweeted: “Mayor Corey Johnson has done a bang-up job during the last five hours. We have no idea what that random guy in Iowa is doing but good luck to him.” And throw in the left to the jaw of deBlasio by none other than Governor Cuomo who stated: “I’ve been governor of New York for eight years. In that time I can count the number of times I left the state on my fingers.”

However, de Blasio is dead in the water as a candidate. To prove it, while in Miami, courting Cuban exiles, he stupidly quoted the mass murderer of Cubans, Che Guevara, with words of revolution, “Hasta la victoria, siempre!” which translates to, “Until victory, always!” Of course, he apologized later when told of what those words meant and who was famous for using them. Perhaps he could spout a few quotations for Mein Kampf when he tries to woo Jews to vote for him. But they know better…..or do they?
