He's just like one of us! (The final weekend edition)


From WCBS880:

After purchasing a cantaloupe-sized pumpkin for $6, the mayor was asked to reveal his favorite vegetable.

He said he eats a lot of onions, but declared iceberg [lettuce] the favorite.

He says it may not be fashionable but insists iceberg is "real America."


Have you ever heard anyone say their favorite vegetable is iceberg lettuce? I think most "real Americans" say "oh, crap, they're serving the cheap lettuce here" when it's featured at a salad bar. It is bland, boring and offers very little in the way of substance. So I guess Bloomberg has proved that you are what you eat.

Yeah, he eats a whole lot of onions. My ass he does!

But he sounded kind of waffly and non-committal. I guess he didn't want to get pinned down and be accused of vegetable favoritism for fear of alienating the cumquat vote or upsetting Dems For Cauliflower in the final days of the campaign. Stick with something "safe" and go with iceberg lettuce. That's the ticket!

My late mother used to make salad with iceberg lettuce all the time. I never even heard of romaine lettuce until later on in life. Mom made great vegetable dishes too. She'd boil the broccoli for 20 minutes until it was nice and mushy. And for dessert? Those canned peaches in heavy syrup were to die for.

Iceberg lettuce...eh?

No wonder that midget Mike is so cold hearted and out of touch with reality.

Me..."I yam what I yam and I'm strong to the finish 'cause I eat all my spinach...I'm Popeye the sailor man"!

"Now go and play with the rest of your wealthy bilge rats...your honor"!

In his entire lifetime, has the Commissar ever uttered any sound that wasn't a "Let's pretend" to be middle class lie?

What a miserable moron!

Use Tuesday to dump this midget.

The Commissar likely is greatly opposed to dwarf tossing. So, let's give this impudent freak the old heave ho on Tuesday.

Let's heave all those who arrogantly defied our law by eliminating term limits for the Commissar.

Take control or be controlled by people who have no use for you.

Dump the dwarf!

Bloomberg's got a lot of onions to be sure.

I read that Mayor Mike does in fact serve meatloaf to his guests at his dinner parties. Maybe his middle class upbringing lives on?

It looks and sounds like Bloomberg is talking through his teeth.

Just like Sweeney Todd's accomplice made meat pies after they'd been properly shaved by the demon barber.

Mike uses top ground middle class meat for his loaves!

Shrimp dip or sheep dip.

I hope we'll see that midget's ass kicked out of city hall on Tuesday!

Whoa...
if he loses do you think he'll declare martial law and ask for a recount or just skip ahead to a fourth term?

Right-o "George" my mom too.

Romaine lettuce? Who even knew WTF that was and we're Italian.

It wasn't until I was 35 that I knew there was Boston or bib lettuce.

H-m-m-m...but the kind of lettuce Mike really loves is simoleons, sawbucks...MONEY!

Gag me. Help small businesses? How, by nickel-and-diming them to death with fees and fines and penalties? I wish he'd give as much help to small businesses as he gives to his rich cronies.

Surely Bloomberg would not have a kitchen looking like that.

YOU ARE ALL JEALOUS. IF YOU LIKE IT OR NOT, MIKE BLOOMBERG WILL BE ELECTED TO A THIRD TERM TOMORROW.
LOOK AT THE BIG PICTURE.
YOU'VE FORGOTTEN WHAT A S@*THOLE THE CITY WAS YEARS AGO. PROGRESS NOT POLITICS. MR. BLOOMBERG IS MY MAN AND I BELIEVE HE HAS OUR BEST INTEREST IN MIND. NOBODYS PERFECT, BUT THIS IS NEW YORK CITY AND TOUGH DECISSIONS HAVE TO BE MADE.

I never heard someone say that either onions or iceberg lettuce where their favorites. Eating iceberg lettuce is like eating a sheet of looseleaf paper. I guess he thought it wouldn't offend.

Most "commoners" would probably pick tomatoes, corn, potatoes, carrots, mushrooms, sweet potatoes or some more normal vegetable.

I can only imagine what his REAL kitchen looks like. It's probably the size of most of our houses with 100K+ worth in appliances alone.
