Debating George W. Bush, Brooklyn-Style

After last night’s Senate debate between Kevin Parker, Kendall Stewart and Simcha Felder, two attendees got into a yelling match on the sidewalk about capitalism and President George Bush.

The man identified himself to me as Ira Weinstock, and he said he’s an adjunct professor at Toro College teaching political science and history. The woman said she was born in Eastern Europe and had once run for Congress in the 10th Congressional District as a Republican.

About halfway through the yelling, the woman storms off, and Weinstock yells at her, “Support George Bush and bankrupt yourself.”

“George Bush, I love him,” the woman replies.

“He bankrupted America,” Weinstock says.

“Shut up!”

And so on.
