Surprise, surprise, it's Pedro Espada Jr!!!
Well, the Democrats have accepted him back into the fold after giving him an offer he just couldn't refuse. Espada is now, officially and once and for all, New York's Senate Majority Leader, the most powerful position in NY State after the Governorship.
This is also a notable hallmark for the Hispanic community. Or at least that's what Espada buddy, Senator Ruben Diaz, said when he took the Senate podium floor the other day:
"This is the greatest, biggest achievement our community has ever gotten."
I think we should be all proud of our State Senate and praise our new Majority Leader. Meanwhile, here are some instructions on tar and feathering:
In a typical tar-and-feathers attack, the subject of a crowd's anger would be stripped to the waist. Hot tar was either poured or painted onto the person while he or she was immobilized. Then the victim either had feathers thrown on him or her or was rolled around on a pile of feathers so that they stuck to the tar. Often the victim was then paraded around town on a cart or a rail. The aim was to hurt and humiliate a person enough to leave town and not cause any more mischief.
