Michael Bloomberg Denies Nanny State Tendencies

Sometimes you can’t help but wonder if NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg is some brilliant parody of an oblivious yet sanctimonious politician.

    "Michael Bloomberg Denies Nanny State Tendencies"

    OK, so we have some bozo with a handle of 'national journalist' or something similar posting in the 'Obama = first-grade kid' thread. S/he claims to be passionate about honesty and that passion seems to be well under control in the posts.
    Now we have Bloomberg claiming he has no interest in the nanny state.
    WIH is this? Stupid, lying assholes Friday?
