No Third Term, Vote for Mr. Burns

Earlier this year, New Yorkers learned of Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s intentions to change a law limiting the number of terms a mayor can serve in New York. Currently in his second term, Mr. Bloomberg is hoping to stay in for another &#151 but must get the law change first. A counter-campaign sprang up in late September using the image of the Simpsons’ Mr. Burns, with copy reading: “No Third Term. Vote Mr. Burns.”

Alleging that Mr. Burns would be a better candidate than Bloomberg is a half-step shy of traditional candidate-on-candidate haranguing, except that this makes a comparison most people can understand. Which isn’t to say that Bloomberg is a bad candidate &#151 but he is guilty of trying to change the rules as he plays the game.

His argument: you can’t get enough done in just two terms. The job is never done though, so it may be time for Bloomberg to step down.
