Mike Spots Dean’s Jet

Politicker intern Leslie is back from Queens, where she had the pleasure of watching Mike break ground on a new indoor swimming pool and ice rink complex in Corona Park.

Not much else was groundbreaking, she reports.

The Democratic Party guy in the Bush mask made his third appearance, demanding that Bloomberg clarify his relationship with the President. The Mayor drove right by him, following up the party-line diss with a rather grumpy response that he supports Bush (only) when he agrees with his policies.

Petulance wasn’t only reserved for his party, though. When a particularly loud plane flew overhead, Bloomberg paused.

“That must be Howard Dean in the DNC corporate jet,” he quipped.
