At the stroke of midnight, in different time zones, two dopes made history in 2014.

The first dope made history in New York City, when a politician left of Leon Trotsky was elected mayor of New York.

Yes, here in the United States.

His first order of business?

Get rid of horse carriages.

Yes. He's doing it because a liberal will do lots of things they can do, once given the power to, good idea or not.

In his bid to bring poor people and rich people closer together, he’s getting rid of horse carriages.

“We are going to quickly and aggressively move to make horse carriages no longer a part of the landscape in New York City,” Mr. de Blasio said at a news conference as reported by the New York Times. “They are not humane.”

Um, no…they’re equine.

Glad he can tell the difference between a horse’s ashhhh…ah, forget it.

In any event, he didn’t seem to posses such knowledge when he was supporting the communists in Nicaragua known as the Sandanistas.

de Blasio, as many such morons do, went to Nicaragua in 1988 to help the children. At the time president Reagan was helping the Contras topple the Sandanistas, who were allied with Cuba and the Soviet Union.

But, scratch a liberal and somewhere, somehow, they’ll blurt out that it’s all about the children.

“Bill de Blasio, then 26,” writes the NYT, “went to Nicaragua to help distribute food and medicine in the middle of a war between left and right. But he returned with something else entirely: a vision of the possibilities of an unfettered leftist government.”

Unfettered leftist government is what is known as sugarplums to Commies at Christmas time.

And you thought New York was in trouble when Weiner and Spitzer were running for mayor?

Ha! Welcome to Barack Obama's America where perverts look better than the converts.
