Political Theatre

Here's a video clip, compliments of Kyle Hughes at & Liz Benjamin, of some of the more entertaining moments of Tuesday's 90-minute leaders meeting, which might have been a total bust from a substance point of view, but was some of the best political theater I've ever seen.

While the opportunity to see this type of politicking may be common in the Albany area, those of us in WNY rarely get the opportunity to see this type of interaction.

The video is just under 19 minutes long, so settle in.

At roughly the halfway point, starting at 10:50, look for the verbal sparring between Skelos and the man looking to replace him, Senate Minority Leader Malcolm Smith.
