Sun Shines on Bloomberg's Childishness

In a wonderfully on point editorial, the NY Sun chastises Mike Bloomberg for his "adult" in the White House comment: "For Mr. Bloomberg to turn around and suggest that Mr. Bush is somehow not an adult or that that he is lacking in leadership abilities displays just an uncharacteristic lack of graciousness by the mayor. It may be that Mr. Bloomberg is feeling frustrated by his own lack of leadership abilities — his inability to get a West Side stadium or congestion pricing past the legislature in Albany, the same legislature that has also blocked his plan to evaluate the city's public school teachers using test scores."

Petulance is not unexpected when you find rich folks stymied by their own inabilities in politics. It's just nice to see the press call it like it is as far as the great Bloomberg mayoral legacy is concerned.
