Ok, enough. I have to say it.
Yes, that's right, it's time to bitch about Bloomberg. No, I don't want Freddy Ferrer to win, of course—but Bloomberg wouldn't be my choice either.

I just saw a Bloomberg ad on TV, in which he says "I believe government can be a force for good." What kind of Republican starts out a political ad like that? Yeah, I know, a Republican who wants a prayer of winning in Manhattan. But still. It's just wrong.

Doesn't anyone remember The Three Great Lies?

The first: I'll still respect you in the morning.

The second: The check is in the mail.

The third (and the one that applies to Bloomberg's statement): I'm from the government and I'm here to help.

Sigh. I'm glad that Republicans are going to have such a long reign in NYC—but it'd be nice if they weren't moving further and further away from traditional Republican ideals as time goes on.

We need to Republicanize the mainstream population here. : (
