Bloomberg Buys Ads In Iowa, New Hampshire

1228mayors.jpg

The full-page advertisement shown above just appeared in the Des Monies Register and the New Hampshire Union Leader. It appears to have been funded by a non-profit called Mayors Against Illegal Guns.

Except… Mayors Against Illegal Guns was founded by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who is the organization’s primary source of funding.

Yessir, ladies and gentlemen, Michael Bloomberg is totally buying campaign ads in Iowa and New Hampshire.

The advertisements can be found in PDF format here and they demand presidential candidates take a survey on their views concerning gun control.

So will Bloomberg run for President? Who cares. It’s kinda great regardless. He’s even more of a spoiler than Mario Cuomo was back in the day, only 100% wishy-washiness free. God 2008′s going to be a good election year.
