Not that we don't already know that Gerald is a sore loser over last year's Congressional race, but his complete failure to recognize the Congressman for the vast stimulus resources he has brought to the region is so telling of the "sour grapes" in the Jennings campaign...

I know you aren't that bright, JJ, but the Congressman also represents the tens of thousands of citizens of Albany (as does the Common Council President) - so guess what, no amount of minimizing will take away from the fact that you, as incumbent Mayor, were just told by your own Congressman to make way for a new vision in Albany.

Throw the bums out...Albany.

Aw. Puppy. :(

Did anyone see the news story about the plane landing with the hulk hogan look alike...Please someone else say that they saw it I have been trying to find the video online and cant find it anywhere
