Shelly Silver Sucks (contd.)

Back on June 3rd, when they were getting ready to vote on the West Side Stadium deal, I said:

Look, it’s either the stadium gets built, or nothing gets built. That bullshit residential/commercial plan the Dolan’s floated will disappear if the stadium plan gets squashed, because Shelly would never allow it to happen, period.

Today’s lead editorial in the New York Daily News: Sheldon Silver’s destructive power

He used this muscle to veto the stadium, which would also have served as a Javits Convention Center annex, on the ground that it would spark development in a fallow area of midtown. He saw that growth not as a boon to the city but as a threat to luring office tenants downtown. Now, Silver appears determined to do even bigger damage. He wants City Hall to jettison a plan aimed at transforming the same far West Side neighborhood into a vibrant business and residential district over the next 30 years. And he’s threatening to block the city from extending the No. 7 subway line into the area from Times Square if he doesn’t get his way.

When is someone gonna realize I am fucking brilliant, and give me filthy lucre to state the obvious for their publication? I mean it; sure, sometimes I’m a crazy bastard, but hey? You wouldn’t even need to have me coming into your house and scaring the witless j-school jerkoffs you usually employ.
