The cancellation of the New York marathon is your fault! Not the fault of the loathsome nanny you elected as mayor!
When asked what he would say to all the runners who had flown in for the event, he said: ‘I’m sorry. I fought the battle, and sometimes things don’t work out…
…Speaking at a press conference in the wake of Friday’s decision, Mary Wittenberg, the CEO of the New York Road Runners, said she had sensed a growing ‘animosity toward the runners’ in the days leading up to the proposed event.
‘We became concerned that… no runner – the best in the world or somebody hoping to finish – was going to receive the welcome that we thought they’d receive,’ Wittenberg said.
So, they thought they’d be seen as – what? Saviors? Heroes? Greater beings from another plane of existence?
Or a bunch of self-absorbed asshats that would be fawned over as they frolicked through the rubble of a badly damaged city, guzzling free water and feeling superior all they way, where the city residents are unable to get food or water. ?
Can’t imagine what’s wrong with that thinking.
It’s wonderful that the mayor and his friends canceled their little race. It probably saved rather a lot in garbage cleanup costs. After all, it’s easier to deal with garbage when it’s in piles then when it’s strewn bout.
Side question to the people being blamed for forcing the enlightened beings to cancel their frolic.
Still think the leather-draped, empty-chair Loin King with his BFF endorser is a great guy deserving your vote? Just asking.
