What's insane about this, to me, is the assumption that Brinsley was some sort of news wonk, hanging on de Blasio's every word. As if any mayor, in any city, at any time, has said anything that inspired the average person to do anything.

This show is weirdly unappealing. Granted, it took me years to stop being a baby, and give the Clone Wars a chance. I'm almost through with it now, and I can't believe how great it is.
