Street Fair? Or Political Sabotage?

On Saturday there was a street fair on Park Avenue, just north of Union Square. The fair shut down Park in both directions and the traffic snarl that resulted was horrendous.

As a result of the fair, the bus that stops directly in front of Babies R Us had to change its route, pissing off the weekend herds of shoppers in various states of babydom: pregnant waddling, stroller pushing, toddler wrassling.

Here’s the sign that was taped to the stop:

You know what I think? I think the street fair was actually planned by Democrats who are just trying to get people pissed off at the Republicans, so that on election day, undecideds will go into the voting booth and remember that the Republicans screwed up the bus routes.

Because who would want New Yorkers to know that they were responsible for an all-day traffic jam and the cancellation of a bus route?  I mean, only total idiots would do…

Oh. Wait. Actually, it probably really was the Republican Club. After all, if you’re willing to nominate Paladino, who gives a shit about the traffic?

    What exactly do they do at these Republican fairs? I can only imagine: “ride the gay man: $2,” “throw darts at the homeless: $1,”taunt pregnant rape victims: FREE,” “take a turn on the politico spinning wheel: .50”
    Paladino sacres me. Like, up in a sweat at 3 am scary.

    @Tonya: your comment cracks me the hell up. You forgot: pay a buck, braid Ann Coulter’s hair. And yeah. Paladino. People aren’t really going to vote for him, are they? Have you seen this video? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DRkUU-qhjk

    I read about the ‘republican street fair’ and happened to be walking by that day. I was wondering what would differentiate this from other street fairs, turns out Tonya was right, spot on. Actually, from a block away it looked just the same, clearly I was being tested, but even my love of grilled corn-on-the-cob and zeppoles couldn’t get me to go. I think my personal protest probably saved me at least 2 lbs, and my soul.
