"Absolutely," the Republican candidate told Politicker today when asked if he's scared of living in Bill de Blasio's New York City, keeping up his totally-not-race-baiting promise of apocalyptic biker gangs and curbside beatings under a Democratic mayor. Lhota, on the other hand, would defend this town with all he has: "I want to be, as mayor, somebody like General George Patton. I want to take charge." Joe Lhota has no idea what year it is.
