America's Ninny

Related Link » America's Nanny: Michael Bloomberg’s public health obsession
“Two weeks ago, New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg was consumed with anxiety: Had a right-wing loon attempted to blow up some of his New Yorkers as they waded through the sea of sweaty corpulence that is Times Square on a summery Sunday afternoon? Those Tea Partiers hate health care, after all, and for the last nine years, Bloomberg has done his best to make New York a health-conscious city. Turns out, the answer was no. But even with New York safe from a jihadi-made car bomb, Bloomberg still has a lot to worry about. […] These concerns keep Mayor Bloomberg, America’s most successful nanny, up at night, while irritating the hell out of his critics.”

Ah, the super rich. They are a varied bunch. Not unlike the rest of us wannabes.

On the one hand, and indeed, you can count them on the fingers of one hand, there are Big Bill the Gatekeeper and a couple three others. They have a lot on the ball.

And then you've got the Blooming morons. Most of these specimens wash up on the shores of government, not unlike an oil spill.
