Win one for the Giffer
The young men who would be Mayor still like being young men, it would seem.
Gifford Miller and Anthony Weiner both stopped by Drinking Liberally at its original Hell's Kitchen last night, after short talks at the McManus Mayoral forum.
The Metropolist covers the night, pointing out that Miller and Weiner fit in at a place known for cheap beer and hot dogs.
But the bigger story is that Giff was a hit.
Weiner held on through a few jeers to give a good speech; but Gifford stayed nearly an hour, talking, drinking, eating, singing part of the Puerto Rican national anthem on request and being very, very human.
His endurance paid off: the Liberal Drinkers were impressed.
One maybe a little too impressed. A young woman who told Gifford his red tie made him look too much like a salesman pulled the Speaker a little too close as she studied his tie...she soon learned that he has a loving wife and two kids.
