What I’m reading this week
The New York Republican party is having its convention this week on Long Island.
If, like me, you’re interested in keeping up with developments, Urban Elephants, Capitol Confidential (the Albany-Times Union political blog), and the new New York Times NY politics blog, Empire Zone, are covering the festivities thus far.
Daily Politics (the must-read Daily News political blog written by Ben Smith) and 51st State (the newish NY Sun political blog written by the fabulous Azi Paybarah) should be in attendance tomorrow.
If any other bloggers are on-site in LI, drop me a line and I’ll link you.

First, let me say that Kevin Breslin will be missed. He was a fiesty Republican and really represented the integrity, loyalty and tenacity of his beloved Brooklyn. May choirs of angels welcome him home across the river Jordan. Honor to his memory and peace to his soul.
I have to say I’m more than a little amused by how fierce the convention struggles seem to be. While a nomination is never an empty honor, I think Republicans have to be very realistic here. I don’t think any of the gubenatorial or Senate nominiees will get 45% in November. Will that be enough to save Joe Bruno and the state senate majority ? Stay tuned (yes, an honor to Joe Mercurio’s awful political colums).
Uh…and nice to see what I can only hope is the end of Mark Green’s political career end with a whimper and not a bang.
