News Flash
Michael Bloomberg Third-Party Candidate

Every decent man is ashamed of the government he lives under
H.L. Mencken (1880–1956), writer

The following is all true.

Last night as I was settling in to watch “Life” on the digital recorder, I received a phone call from a polling service (we don't have caller ID). The woman didn’t know who hired them and I believed her, so I agreed to answer some questions.

However as the questions went on, it became obvious that it was commissioned by Michael Bloomberg. By obvious I mean long statements about Bloomberg that I had to interrupt. Here is the announcement: Bloomberg is going to run as an independent candidate for president, if Hillary Clinton and Rudy Giuliani are their respective party nominees.

This would be the worse selection of candidates in my adult life, if this scenario comes to pass.

Hi Sporks, I was a bit surprised too. It even leads me to think that Bloomberg's meeting with Obama last week might have been about a VP slot for either of them. The picture, like most my pics come from Google images.
