Bloomberg to get down on his knees tomorrow

From NY Mag:

It's do-or-die for Mayor Bloomberg and New York City Republicans. Tomorrow morning at the Metropolitan Club, the mayor will make a personal appeal for forgiveness before the five GOP county leaders in a last-resort effort to win back their favor and secure their ballot line. The summit is billed as a "candidate screening," but it promises to be more like a tribunal. Republicans say they intend to air a lengthy list of grievances against the mayor, starting with his abandonment of the party a year and a half ago.

Bloomberg isn't one to genuflect before party honchos, but he has little other choice. On the surface, the billionaire mayor would seem to be in a strong position; he has a commanding lead in the polls over his Democratic rivals and a bottomless war chest. But the mayor's struggle for a major-party ballot line is threatening to become a fatal obstacle. Political insiders doubt that the mayor, even with his resources, could win a third term if he's stranded in ballot Siberia.

I wish I took off work. I'd be outside the MetClub with a sign saying, "Not this time, Mac!"

Here's what IS going to happen:

The girly boys will exchange pink panties and makeup tips.

The Republican girly boys will then sonorously pronounce that the Commissar has completed his confession and penance, and now, to show true nonpartisan Republican forgiveness, they will place his name on the ballot.

The Commissar, to demonstrate his total contrition, will drop his panties and shit in their faces, calling it a Commissariat blessing.

The Republican girly boys will vow to never wash again (much like the love-struck teens after a first kiss).

The Republican girly boys will campaign on the new nonpartisan platform that shit is good for the taxpayers. They will then drop their panties and shit all over the voters.

The smart voters will flush the toilet for a final time on the nonpartisan Republican party.

Now I love the smashmouth comments that appear here. Once in a rare while, even I let fly with a less than sweet comment.

Most - no, all - my comments are directed at the swine whose snouts feed at the taxpayer-filled trough, or morons who make imbecilic comments.

You, moron, made an imbecilic comment based upon what? A difference of OPINION?

Go shit in your hat!

Just say no is right. Please, GOP, kick him to the curb.

My vote's for Italian Girl, whether I agree with her or not, she is always respectful. Shame on the drive-by anonymous no-good coward.

What are the facts regarding this news?

I would crave to wrong about this, but the NY Republican party is so cowardly that the party symbol should be changed to Big Bird.
