Will this help Barry next Tuesday?
Short answer, No.
I don't think it will help him even in New York and New Jersey. Because despite the vast media build-up and 24/7 coverage of the storm, Sandy was NO BIG DEAL anywhere except the NY/NJ shoreline. If you weren't within a mile of the ocean and at or below sea level, nothing extraordinary happened to you. Normal storm, normal storm damage.
In my case, the storm center tracked right over my house in Ontario. It was so windy and rainy that a bit of bark came off one of my trees. That was the common experience across most of the affected area. We all rolled our eyes, cut up the odd tree limb with the trusty chainsaw and went to work as normal Tuesday morning.
|Cars belonging to people who parked below sea level.|
People with underground parking on the southern tip of Manhattan are having a bad week for sure, but in all fairness they were warned and warned and warned and threatened and screamed at for a week to move those f-ing cars. Sorry dudes, but my sympathy is somewhat limited.
Today Barry will stupidly go down to the affected area of the Jersey shore. He and his security detail will frig up traffic and stop work for most of the day while he gets photographed looking pensively out to sea, maybe picking up a child's toy he finds right next to where he's standing in the wreckage.
|Where's the tape? How's Barry gonna find that?!|
|gaffer tape begone!|
Also there are some indications that Barry's personal fingerprints have been found on some of the solar power grants that went bad.
Unless there is some massive vote fraud and shenanigans, I hereby renew my prediction that Barry will be a one-hit wonder. Should shenanigans prevail and he gets elected by the graveyards of the nation, the House and Senate will go majority Republican and Barry will be impeached before Easter.
Enjoy your Halloween, and all you Americans vote early and often!
