Dear New Yorkers,

You've been had.

You've been had because your junior Senator no longer represents you as she runs for the presidency.

Iowans matter more than you. New Hampshirites matter more than you. Barack Obama's fund-raising numbers matter more than you.

You were told this would happen.

When was the last time you heard your junior Senator address the tax burden in Suffolk County? When do you recall her describing how to help ghostly upstate communities as she campaigns?

You're an afterthought. You're forgotten.

She cares more about her pollsters than she does you.

The charter school movement is the most important and consequential political movement in our state. You don't hear a word from her about it on the stump. Not a syllable of support.

You've been had.

You elected a person with no idea what it was like to buy a Nathan's hot dog on Coney Island. She probably needed a briefing.

You elected a person who couldn't tell you the difference between the suspension spans on the Golden Gate Bridge and our beloved Verrazano Bridge. She probably hired a Brooklyn political consultant to explain it.

You elected a person who never drove by the Big Duck on eastern Long Island. She probably assembled a focus group to describe it on her way to a 2000 Hamptons fund-raiser.

Doesn't it bother you that you've been used like this by an Illinoisan by way of Arkansas who knew nothing about New York, and never speaks about our state as she seeks the Oval Office?

You've been had.

Love, Chris.

The Jimmy Swaggart Poll

The Values Voters straw poll "won" by Gov. Mitt Romney on Saturday in Washington, D.C. was an embarrassment for the Christian conservatives who organized it.

According to The New York Times:

"Anyone who is a member of Family Research Council Action, one of the groups organizing the summit, could vote. Joining the group only requires a $1 donation. Mr. Romney's campaign, as well as others, has been actively encouraging people to vote online. And about 3,500 new people have joined the organization, on top of the existing 5,000 members, in the last few months. Out of the 2,500 attendees of the summit, only 952 out of 5,775 overall actually cast votes in person. But almost 600 of those who attended had already voted online."

Congressman Ron Paul finished third. He "defeated" Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Sen. John McCain and Sen. Fred Thompson.

In any election where human beings go to the polls a Ron Paul doesn't stand a chance against Giuliani, McCain or Thompson. The Paul skill is attracting propeller hat anti-Semites, conspiracy theorist crackpots and obsessive-compulsive supporters on the Internet surfing in from their mother's basement.

Paul's "better than expected" finish will be promoted and hailed by his demented supporters to help him raise another $5 million this quarter.

Congratulations Family Research Council Action. You did a splendid job this weekend with your little straw poll.

The Daily Chichester

Governor Richard Milhouse Spitzer continues to lose support for his scheme to provide driver's licenses to illegal aliens.

The Governor-Infant is searching for a few more Haldemans and Ehrlichmans.

Rudy's speech was a masterpiece

It's getting interesting, finally.

The "Transgendered"

The left excels at inventing new terms you're supposed to understand and immediately accept as a moral absolute.

"Transgendered rights" is before the House of Representatives. I'm still not sure what that means, or why it's supposed to be the new civil rights movement.

I'll try to explain it as succinctly as possible. A man asks a surgeon to remove a part of his anatomy, switches from wearing a suit to a dress at work and "her" employer should be prevented by Federal law from terminating "her" employment even though it raises serious questions about private behavior, decisions and religion.

The homosexual lobby has always failed to understand how they arrogantly compel Americans to judge them once they announce the individuals in their bedrooms. They seek acceptance and approval. If you don't accept and approve their lives you're a bigot, you're intolerant.

Yet, they have no tolerance for faith. The "transgendered" want to force their personal lives on you. If you're a Catholic small business owner your beliefs are irrelevant.

The Anything Goes left and their allies in Congress revel in lecturing Americans to stay out of their bedrooms when it comes to abortion. But in the workplace they want their employers to know exactly who is in their bedrooms. Even for someone who was Jack on Monday and shows up as Jill on Tuesday.
