Michael Bloomberg for mayor of Crawford TX 
For a guy who, until his desire to be mayor outweighed his common sense, was a lifelong Democrat, Mike Bloomberg seems to have drunk not just a sip but an entire pitcher of neo-con Koolade.

Speaking to volunteers about potential protests at the upcoming Republican Convention at Madison Square Garden , Bloomberg said
People who avail themselves of the opportunity to express themselves ... they will not abuse that privilege. Because if we start to abuse our privileges, then we lose them, and nobody wants that.
Well, no, Mike - it is NOT a "privilege," it's a right, guaranteed by the 1st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. When you want to ingratiate yourself with the Republican guard, that ol' Constitution becomes might inconvenient.
