RIP Ed Koch

Ed Koch was the rare Democrat you could respect for their integrity. He started NYC in the direction of recovery but was undermined by the media following the death of Yussuf Hawkins. The media allowed Jesse Jackson and a few other race hustler to inject racial garbage into the mayoral campaign.
The city narrowly elected the dignified but incompetent David Dinkins. He meant well but couldn't run anything. His actions in the Crown Heights riots led to the victory of Rudy.

Koch made an error in endorsing Obama. Obama made some phone calls to get Koch into a hospital and Koch felt a debt of gratitude. Koch looked at the appointments of Obama and stated I expected Obama to betray Israel but not this soon.

RIP Ed Koch who quoted Daniel Pearl on his headstone.

Beaks's hero - a corrupt closeted homo.

Lets look at communism 101. It is okay to hurl gay slurs at those on the right. Were this type of remark stated by Mr. Beamish the Duck would be screaming.

Koch lived his own way and chose to be private.

Lets compare Koch to some familiar icons from MA.

John Gomer Kerry Betrayed his country, lied about his war experiences in congress, cheated on his taxes.

Ted Chapaquidick Kennedy

Barney "brothel" Frank

Koch stood for social liberalism, fiscal liberalism and Pro Israel foreign policy. The last part is what bothers the Duck

Nothing Koch ever did affected my life in any way - his reach stopped at New York City. I guess that's where a mayor's ower should stop.

I do note that NYC smelled and looked like a rotting garbage scowl in the early 80's when I visited, and was remarkably clean in the mid-90s when I visited in the Guiliani years. Don't know if there's a connection there, but I'm guessing there probably is.

Hi-larious! Beak worried about using "gay" as a pejorative.

Ed was one of the greatest mayor's Israel ever had...wait...what?
