Angry New Yorker is coming back... because there's no shortage of things in today's NY to be angry about. Stay tuned!

It's rather stunning that we're already one week finished with 2011, leaving only 51 in which to fight the unholy troika juggernaut of ennui, inertia and politicians' inclination to spend more as an "investment" in the future. 2010 was, I'll be blunt, the worst year, personally, since 2001 - and that's actually really saying something.
But in 2011 I'm somewhat (that's a tentative and qualified 'somewhat') hopeful, because I think more and more people are waking up to the collective cataclysmic dangers facing us. The flipside, however, is whether this awakening is challenged into focused productive action or merely becomes a fatalistic impulse to stir up a new martini, pull up a deck chair and listen to the band run through its final chorus of Near, My God, To Thee, before the deck tilts, the stern rises and the waters ultimately close again.

Bloomberg Beclowns Himself
I've long thought that the only reason anyone voted for Michael Bloomberg is that the alternatives were so much worse. Time again he's proven to be a big-spending, nanny statist with virtually no understanding of how the average family lives in the non-Manhattan boros of NYC.
Yesterday he highlighted his clownish, yet again, stating without any evidence, without any factual basis, and without any knowledge that the Time Square failed bomber was likely “Homegrown, or maybe a mentally deranged person, or somebody with a political agenda that doesn't like the health care bill or something.”
Doesn't like the health care bill??!? Surely, if these were the Mayor's top three and best guesses of NYC's mayor he has beclowned himself on an entirely different level than he has before.
Why do so many politicians feel the need to spout on topics that they have literally no knowledge of?

What to say about the debacle upstate in the 23rd Congressional district. Suffice to say, Mr. Hoffman has our nod, for what little it's worth. Newt Gingrich is blowing a hole below the waterline in his ship of self with his endorsement of Dede Scozzafava. As Richard Brookhiser notes, the "contest in NY 23 is what the New York Conservative Party was made for."
As Mark Steyn quips, Dede Scozzafava "isn't RINO but DIABLO - Democrat In All But Label Only. It's not one of those "socially liberal, fiscally conservative" bi-swinger deals — not when you're pro-'stimulus', pro-cash-for-clunkers."
Enough is enough.

What next? Stalin's Birthday?
Has the moral decay set in this deeply? We would have thought it impossible, but alas we are often chagrined at our naivite when it comes to the depths. From National Review Online:
