The WISH List

Filed under: Local Politics, Media

August is a sleepy month, unless you’re a politician facing a primary in September or a political junkie who can’t stop handicapping the races.

If you’re one of those junkies—and if you hold your nose and read Joe Illuzzi more than once a week (no link; you know the way), then you know that you are—then you’re not interested in reading a candidate’s sanctioned site. You don’t want press releases and bromides. You don’t care about Michele Iannello’s 40 ideas in 40 days. (Why stop at the primary, Michele? Why not a good idea every day even when no election looms?)

You want the kind of analysis that’s often served anonymously, as at What the Sam Hoyt? (or WISH), a new blog whose author says “The City of Buffalo is in a dangerous position. Our new County Executive is openly hostile to the city, the Assembly Speaker is a downstater, and the new Majority Leader of the Senate is from Long Island…It’s time to hold our State Leadership to a higher standard…As we’re starting during the political season, we’ll also be pointing out hypocrisy and the generally bad ideas that come out of campaigns around this time.”

Godspeed, WISH.

    Don’t forget Chris Collins was over hears saying “there wasn’t supposed to be a middle class, it just gets in the way” at a fancy restaurant a few mmonths ago. He uses threats and intimidation tactics like every so-so idiot republican does…Hazardous waste?
