Bloomberg and Sharpton: Perfect Together

New York Magazine is reporting (thanks for the link Liz) that there has been an unusually heated dalliance going on between the mayor and Al Sharpton. It seems that the two joined forces to advocate for the recycling center in Chelsea-using "environmental justice" as the central theme.

This goes hand-in-hand with the mayor's church-hopping yesterday on behalf of his congestion tax. In both cases the issue of environmental justice is being used by the mayor who, more and more, seems to get a kick from using the phrase. It is another reason why we are beginning to see just how much an alliance between Sharpton and Bloomberg would make sense-a relationship where allegiance is ruled by expedience, and where hypocrisy is the glue, as it is with all arranged marriages.
