From Room Eight:
We cannot possibly forget how Mike got the Republican and Independence lines. Right, it was his money. Clarence Norman went to jail for $5,000 while Bloomberg has purchased his lines for well over $500,000. It's all in the nuance.
There were also those Democrat talking heads, Hank Scheinkopf, Howard Wolfson, and Andrea Schlessinger. There, too, the common denominator is money. Yes, Hank, Howard, and Andrea, we know that it was Bloomberg's tremendous talents that brought you on board. After all he was able to build two baseball stadiums squandering billions in tax payer dollars. Here is a Mayor who has shown real Democrat principles.
I was deeply concerned five years ago when Bloomberg and Kelly arrested law abiding citizens who only wanted to protest the Republican National Convention's coming to town. It was a disgrace. That, however, pales in comparison to the fact that Bloomberg has single handedly arrested democracy in New York City. We will recover, but we will forever be considered a national disgrace. Bloomberg clearly learned a lot from Iran.
