    For once, Mr. King is correct.  Republicans abhor New York and New Yorkers, though they hit Wall Street-types for money and though both FOX and the Wall Street Journal cheerleaders are located here.  

    Let us not forget that it was the Republicans who resisted all attempts to give aid to New York after 9/11 -- including attempts to provide medical aid to "first responders" (from all over the United States, actually) who encountered extreme, hazardous conditions that were unacknowledged by Mr. Bush and his cohorts.  

    Mr. Bush crassly used New York as the host city for the 2004 convention (and as the tasteless background for some of his campaign ads), but he refused to spend a moment more than he had to in the city.  His disdain was all too apparent.
