As far as I'm concerned this is all you need to know about Ed Koch

He endorsed Bush/Cheney in 2004

1. One mistake and you're out!

Fuck Ed Koch - his whole life is meaningless except the one time he did something I disagree with. That's how I judge people. That's how I learned that pretty much every person I meet is an asshole who deserves nothing but scorn.

I do get lonely sometimes, but that's a small price to pay for moral purity.

5. I agree that that election was a disaster

I don't agree that Ed Koch's whole life can be summed up in that one act. Like most people he did some good things and some bad things. Probably like you, certainly like me. And when you die do you want people to focus exclusively on the time you fucked up?

Possibly you don't fuck up in which case, congrats.
