Bloomberg is the tops

I really hate politics and talking about politics so I'll try to be as simple as I can with all of this ish. Y'know me and Bloomberg have a very tumultuous thing going, it's a love/hate thing. Today, I love him. I think Bloomberg deciding to donate his 6-year-old Republican peacoat for an unaffiliated one is great. It speaks volumes. It may F things up down the line if he (and we know he's gonna) does finally decide to run for prez (the same way Nader always F's things up) but for 2007 unaffiliated is the only way to go; I've always felt that's where the truth lies; somewhere betwixt Michael Savage and Michael Moore; somewhere between John McCain and JFK; take some from this side and some from that side, take it all with a life-sized grain of salt and that's where you'll find the absolute troofs. Nothing is ever going to truly change if politicians are just playing games adhering to an ideology because they have to. Just as I remarked at dinner with mum last night, politics are just like sports; something for people to follow; something for people to believe in and argue about and be passionate about; right now, its really not much more than that. However, if all these bloated bastards would FINALLY shed their stubborn allegiances and let their real ambitions and ideas shine no matter what, maybe THEN we'd see some light in this here world. And sure enough, it takes a businessman and NOT a politician, it takes a man with money on his mind to make some sense. Isn't it time to stop giving an F about labels and parties and sticking to the tradition of some old blowfarts when its 2007 and we've got new modern day problems?

Anyway, here's what my boy had to say:

"I have filed papers with the New York City Board of Elections to change my status as a voter and register as unaffiliated with any political party. Although my plans for the future haven’t changed, I believe this brings my affiliation into alignment with how I have led and will continue to lead our City.

“A nonpartisan approach has worked wonders in New York: we’ve balanced budgets, grown our economy, improved public health, reformed the school system and made the nation’s safest city even safer.

“We have achieved real progress by overcoming the partisanship that too often puts narrow interests above the common good. As a political independent, I will continue to work with those in all political parties to find common ground, to put partisanship aside and to achieve real solutions to the challenges we face.

Any successful elected executive knows that real results are more important than partisan battles and that good ideas should take precedence over rigid adherence to any particular political ideology. Working together, there’s no limit to what we can do.”
OK so my boy gets a little corny at the last line there but what he's saying is totally right on. Especially the part I put in bold italics which should indicate to you that I think it's totally right on haha

So today Bloomberg is my man again, back on my list and to that I say it look goooood onya!
