Dumb as a Post

In a follow up to our previous post on mayoral spokesman Post, dealing with the Lauder deal, the NY Daily News has a fuller quote from the clueless minion: "A spokesman for the mayor, Jason Post, said "there is no conflict whatsoever" and argued the law is designed to prevent politicians from using their positions for financial or personal gain. "This is purely a publicity stunt by people who are distorting the intent of the conflicts law because they disagree with the mayor on a matter of public policy," Post said."

This is what we would term institutionalized arrogance-even the mayor's staff is delusional; believing that the mayor's not running for a third term because of any selfish motive whatsoever. Someone must have really spiked the Kool Aide down at City Hall.
