Totally understandable. Condi’s a very big supporter of New York. After all, she was dropping major bank into their local economy buying Ferragamo’s & tickets to Broadway shows while New Orleans drowned.
Also, in McCain’s favor it’s recently been revealed that he called his wife a cunt in a ’92 campaign stop. According to my television machine, this word is very popular with New Yorkers. Plus he’s elderly and confused. New Yorkers loved this about Reagan in ’80 & ’84.
