Masters of the Obvious for Mayor

Not to be upstaged by Weiner’s shocking and (ahem!) formal declaration of his mayoral candidacy yesterday, Team Giff issued a release last night, one that really threw down the gauntlet: “Miller for Mayor Announces that Miller is a Candidate for Mayor.”

“It’s official, Gifford Miller is a candidate for Mayor,” wrote communications director Steve Sigmund. “He calls on every serious candidate in the race to make their intentions clear (beyond the months of campaigning, fundraising, policy announcements, endorsements, debates, and forums…that is).”

All bets are off.
