Freddy Votes

Freddy stopped in at a nursing home in Riverdale this morning to cast his vote, promising “a steady diet of ideas” from here on in and sympathizing with a voter who said she needed a drink.

Down the hill, the ad agency Weber Shandwick put a mule and a mustachioed Hispanic man with a broad-brimmed hat in front of “supporters” with “Vote for Juan” signs, promoting the character Juan Valdez as “favorite advertising icon.”

“Tacky to say the least,” said Congressman Jose Serrano.
