Trust me!

We did get a kick out of one independent observer of the mayoral control kerfuffle-the always fair minded and unbiased Bill Cunningham. Billy the Kid said this about the balking state senators: "The irony of calls for civility from senators like Parker, who is under indictment for striking a news photographer, and Hiram Monserrate (D-Queens), who allegedly slashed his girlfriend's face with broken glass, had some Bloomberg loyalists rolling their eyes. "This group calling for civility is like Bernie Madoff calling for better accounting standards," said Bill Cunningham, a longtime Bloomberg adviser."

Unlike asking the disingenuous Cunningham to be a straight shooter when it comes to his once and future patron. There's an old saying that the way to say, "screw you," in a certain vernacular is, "Trust me!" Cunnigham fits right into there; and his analysis is, well, totally Horn and Hardart-or, to explain for those too young to remember: self serving.
