Bloomberg goes there

The only negative aspects of watching the Yankees over the weekend was seeing the repeated shots of the cadaverous visage of Rudolph Giuliana in the front row.

And now he's back, appearing on the stump with Bloomberg, reminding us that if a black man is again allowed to be mayor of the city, then we'll be right back to the era when Shaft was walking through Times Square.

Mr. Giuliani did not mention Mr. Bloomberg’s Democratic challenger, William C. Thompson Jr., by name. But during the first of two campaign events alongside Mr. Bloomberg, he said that not long ago many parts of the city were gripped by “the fear of going out at night and walking the streets.”

“You know exactly what I’m talking about,” Mr. Giuliani said at a breakfast sponsored by the Jewish Community Council in Borough Park, Brooklyn. “This city could very easily be taken back in a very different direction — it could very easily be taken back to the way it was with the wrong political leadership.”

Bloomberg's spent a trillion dollars (approximately) on his reelection against an opponent who is as hapless a politician as you'll ever see, and yet he cannot resist an opportunity to double down on the nastiness. It shows about as much good judgment as his decision to sort of run for president last year on the Lieberman for Connecticut ticket (or something).
