Keep the Bugs Out
Know the politician by the company he keeps:
In 2007, two well-known figures on the Northeast political landscape dropped their Republican party affiliation and became Independents with a capital “I”. One was New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the other former U.S. Senator Lincoln D. Chafee.
On Thursday, Bloomberg is headed this way to endorse Chafee’s bid to become Rhode Island’s next governor.
Perhaps Mayor Bloomberg will submit to a voluntary inspection of his person and belongings to ensure that he isn’t carrying the bedbugs that have begun to plague his city to our state. And hopefully, the Rhode Island electorate will ensure that he doesn’t transmit his nanny-state vision for government action here, either.
