In New York City, public advocate Bill de Blasio has won by a large margin over Republican Joe Lhota, to become the city's first Democratic mayor in more than 20 years.

Getting the Jewish vote did not shape the Dinkins Administration’s approach to a Jewish community under attack – and I suspect it won’t do much for the de Blassio Administration either. The Orthodox will not get the one big prize they’d been desiring all along, and rightfully so: yeshiva vouchers.

Finally, in Virginia, the voters have turned their backs on the Republicans. The election of a Democrat to the state house (and to the lieutenant governor’s post) completes the set, since both U.S. senators from Virginia are Democrats, too. The Associated Press and the television networks reported that a third of Virginia voters said they were personally impacted by the shutdown and went for McAuliffe by about 20 points. It could mean that the Republican party’s inability to win the White House may have been declared terminal. Why? Because as soon as the Republican candidate for governor Ken Cuccinelli took office as Attorney General in Virginia four years ago, he started in on abortions, inventing new, demeaning ways of punishing women wishing to abort unwanted pregnancies.

It’s time Republicans understood that the majority of women, Republicans and democrats, want legal abortions, and they will punish politicians who try to take them away.

As always, the one surefire remedy for all your worries, in whatever state you reside, is to contact your local Nefesh B’Nesfesh office and start the process of moving to the land of eternal spring, where we guarantee 300 sunny days a year or your money back. Peace.

  1. I totally agreed with your column; it shows that when you're not writing about who's a good Jew and who isn't, you can make a lot of sense. Especially when you're talking about one of my favorite subjects: Weed. However, that last paragraph is more than a little sketchy, especially since the Knesset, in the process of making it possible to get married in any Israeli city or town of your choice, not using an orthodox rabbi at alll (i.e. two Jews getting married in a civil ceremony) could get you a couple years in prison. Netanyoyo can take that law and shove it where the sun never shines, and I'd be more than happy to say that right to his face.
