Yes, this will work

I know, I know. It's just a cute little political yuk. And I don't mean to be mean, but this may be the strongest case Republican nominee Joe Lhota has in his bid to become the next mayor of New York City.

Lhota is the former chairman of the New York City Metropolitan Transportation Authority and former deputy mayor under Rudolph Guiliani. He won the Republican primary on September 10, 2013 with 52.5% of the vote, defeating John Catsimatidis, who got 40.7%, and George T. McDonald, who received 6.8%. He will face the Democratic nominee Bill de Blasio in the mayoral general election on November 5, 2013.

About a week ago, Quinnipiac University released a poll showing that Mr. de Blasio had the support of 66 percent of likely voters, compared with 25 percent for Mr. Lhota.

If you have no idea who Joe Lhota is and need a reason to dislike him, you might start with his red baiting. I think that'll work about as well as the beard thing.
