Does Mayor Bloomberg defy the love/hate paradigm?  Is there such thing as a "Bloomberg Independent" or a "Left-leaning, Bloomberg Republican"?  I feel like there are actually two solid schools of thought on the mayor.  You are either:

  • Happy with the job he’s doing, because New York hasn’t sunk into the The Inferno, but you realize that the guy’s one of the smartest businessmen in the world and that’s why he’s a good mayor,
  • You are so blown away that a guy like him can impose himself on the biggest city in the world in a (somewhat illegally) king-like way that you start making up crazy, meta scenarios that he’s the son of a modern day Dickens character.

I’m in the middle.  There is something that is bothersome about this man who makes the city run, but then he goes ahead and gets all "liberal New York Jew" on the state of Arizona by saying that by condoning this action, the U.S. is "is committing national suicide." Seriously, Bloomy, I want to be in the camp that thinks you’re a creep, but if you keep talking like this, maybe we can be friends.
