Sympathy vote

The ridiculous Unity08 movement has morphed into the Draft Bloomberg movement (which is what it always really was anyway — and sorry, no linky from me).

The attention this whole “bi-partisan” ego trip has garnered is astounding. The media lapdogs just lick that shit up like cat poop.

Nonetheless, for all the free publicity given to a billionaire today, only 766 people have signed the online petition (the discrepency between the image and my figure is that I posted later than the blogger that did the screen grab, and got the newer figure, which means that in the course of about 5 hours, only another 200 signed).

So much for that great grassroots “need” for Bloomberg to run. I think a petition to tax puppy petting would do better.
