Imagine That...

Someone else is taking exception to the Democrat's hypocrisy in the New York State Senate. The Albany Times Union took that position with Malcolm Smith and company's recent release of their flimsy imitation of a so called newscast titled One New York, which has since been removed from the internet.

Here are a few snippets, and read the entire editorial here.
The issue:
Senate Democrats spend taxpayer funds on self-promotion.

And in the course of the film, we're informed that Democrats "recognize that we have to change the way we do business in this chamber."

If there was an Oscar for chutzpah, this would surely be the nominee to bet on.
This faux documentary came just days after Democrats made a splash decrying the Senate Republicans' abuses of power and public funds.
Yet even as they were spouting about Republican excesses and appointing a committee to study reform, they had at least nine state employees working on a feature-length campaign commercial.
As was said before right here - Hypocrites!

One would expect nothing different from the Albany Times Union. Cut'em some slack. I am sure it was just an oversight.

It doesn't stop with cable TV. Senate Dems were barking for years about legislative reforms to make the Senate more open and accessible.

The result so far? Nothing!

Seven bills passed, nothing on committee agendas, no fair distribution of resources, lack of bipartisanship.

Hypocrites is almost too polite a term. They lied! We bought it. Shame on them. Shame on us.
