Bloomie eats trans-fats after banning them

They may be too unhealthy for regular New Yorkers to eat, but not so for Mayor Michael Bloomberg, apparently.

After gaining national media attention for spearheading an almost total ban on trans fats in city restaurants, Bloomberg was photographed in this month's issue of Wired magazine munching on those very same dangerous fats.


Mayor's munchies trump city policy

The photo, which accompanies a short Q&A about technology and politics, features Bloomberg at his City Hall desk, looking thoughtful and serious. Meanwhile, his right hand seems almost absent-mindedly pulling a Cheez-It out of a single-serving bag of the crackers.

The reader can only assume that the baked snack cracker is headed for the mayor's mouth, and along with it some of the half-gram of trans fat found in every serving of Cheez-Its.

Let him eat tons of trans fat, the turtle-faced billionaire ego maniac should get a taste of his own medicine.

From a man who tells us with a straight face we need to abandon cars in favor of public transportation to save the enviornment, while he himself maintains a private jet, what would you expect? "Do as I say, not as I do".

The mayor presented the folks in Oklahoma recently with not one but three Junior's cheesecakes! He said there are no transfats in them. Really?

I'm the Commissar! Don't you even think of questioning my decisions. If I tell you no trans-fat, that the end of the discussion!

You may not decide these matters for yourself! I always know better than you!

As Curtis says, Bloomie was caught orange-handed.

This man has been telling us for years he is categorically not running for president, and now he is gonna run as an independent. I can't wait to see this ego maniac take an ass pounding in the south and lose a billion dollars. I used to live down south and the only thing less popular than AIDS with the people down their are Jews. (especially the billionaire, pseudo-communist, good for nothing Yankee type)

Just one item where we disagree: Bloomberg's no stinkin' pseudo-commie; he's the real thing. A total totalitarian believer - an enforcer!
