Not a Pol

Listening to 106.7 Lite-FM during my time off (please, don’t ask), I caught a Mike for Mayor radio spot I hadn’t heard before. A couple muses cornily on how the city has recovered since 9/11, but there seems to be one thing that hasn’t changed since 2001: Bloomberg’s slogan. The tagline on the ad is “A Leader, Not A Politician.”

It’s an oldie but a goodie, though it also invites a bit more smirking now, after the signed tax-rebate etc., than it did when he stumbled out onto the stump.

Posting on this site will be a bit light, or Lite, until Wednesday, when the Observer staff returns from a week off, which we in weekly-newspaper land like to refer to as a “double-issue.”
