Aside from all the obvious issues that have already been discussed with this candidacy...

1. If you're going to use NC-17 movies as part of your argument for parental notification for abortion, you might want to actually learn the term "NC-17" and not call them "NR-17."
2. Oh, this is where the hubbub about Ford referring to Gillibrand as a "young lady" came from. (Well, unless he did it somewhere else too.) That did just come across as ridiculous, and I checked and she is in fact older than he is.
3. He walked right into Colbert's bit about not liking the President. I guess that could go well or poorly for him, depending.
4. He hasn't voted in New York? Really? That just seems dumb. He had to know he'd get that question, probably many times. Find some election and vote in it! Is he registered in NYC? Didn't they just have a mayoral election? Does anyone know whether he took a public stand for or against Bloomberg?

The back & forth between him & Gillibrand is getting ridiculous around here, oh boy. But! This is the Colbert where he also suggests that Ford only visit my fair city by helicopter fly over. Actually, he suggests just looking at us on google maps. :-p The Chamber of Commerce is doing a thing inviting Colbert to visit Schenectady by helicopter himself. http://www.dailygazette.com/news/2010/feb/03/0203_colbert/
