The Daily Show dove back into the mayor’s race last night, delivering a rather brutal assessment of Republican Joe Lhota’s chances in the polls tonight.
After playing a news clip that described Mr. Lhota trailing Bill de Blasio by a huge margin in a recent poll, host Jon Stewart went on to list other equally dismal contests.
The Colbert Report devoted one of its segments to Albany politics last night, complete with a particularly amusing image of Governor Andrew Cuomo with a The Cat in the Hat-style hat on. The topic? Mr. Cuomo pushing the State Legislature to combine any pay raise for themselves with several other policies he would like to be passed. However, Stephen Colbert, as he is wont to do, focused solely on the Cuomo-backed legislation reducing the penalty for having less than 25 grams of marijuana to a violation.
