Nothing galls the true believers more than the notion that party labels don't mean that much anymore....such it is in Albany where the GOP has teamed up with the five member Independent Democratic Caucus to run the Senate after January 1st.
It may seem a loss for the left, but the deal will allow so called "progressive" issues to come to the floor for a vote...Things like minimum wage hikes and campaign finance reform.
It's just the Senate will not be run by NYC Democrats who botched the job three years ago.
Earlier I referred to Sen. Dean Skelos as the Mark Sanchez of Albany....Still true as he is the starting QB only as long as there are no setbacks....then the fans will abandon him quickly.
Democrats have called the coalition a "coup". Middle Class Mike calls it heresy and thinks the Governor is a Pontious Pilate-like figure for not doing something to stop it.
