Bloomberg's Memorial Day campaign commercial
"Happy Memorial Day" is not an appropriate sentiment, Mr. Mayor. This is supposed to be a solemn, reflective holiday. And who gave the authorization to distribute your campaign posters to people along the parade route? How incredibly tasteless.
CBS 2 noticed as well:
Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his would-be Democratic rival, Comptroller Bill Thompson, marched together but separated by a few other politicians.
But Bloomberg was the only one to overtly campaign. Aides gave out American flags with Bloomberg decals and the mayor left the parade march to schmooze with voters.
