Under The Wire

With just hours left in 2010, Michael Bloomberg manages to go the extra mile to offer even more asininity.

The Blizzard of 2010 may have forever dented Mayor Bloomberg’s popularity.

The mayor admitted today that the botched snow removal effort this week was a “character building” experience for him.

“This year is not ending the way I would have preferred, but it’s still been a good year,” he said this morning on his radio show. “Nobody has a career that goes straight up.”

He added that the city’s failure to clear streets days after the blizzard was “character building.”

Bloomberg said he also asked the Department of Investigation to look into claims that some disgruntled Sanitation workers purposely failed to plow streets.

Well, so long as it improved his character. One question: Does he think his political career was going straight up until now?
