Bloomberg Gains GOP Nomination, Said to Seek WFP Nod Too
The usually hardcore conservative Republican and anti-Bloomberg Urban Elephants site offered a post in which the author, though "absolutely opposed to Bloomberg's candidacy for mayor," nonetheless agrees "there does not appear to be any real reason why they should refuse to give him the nod. It makes little sense to put themselves on the outside looking in..."
It is reported that Bloomberg also seeks the endorsement of the liberal Working Families Party -- which party the New York Post today condemns as "left-wing coalition of organized labor and ACORN activists," which for conservatives is about as bad an agglomeration of curses as can be concocted. Expect to hear less overt criticism of the WFP from the Bloomberg-boosting paper if the deal goes down.
