Michael Bloomberg is an Ass Man

New York’s cover story this week — written by Jonathan Van Meter — is an in-depth look at councilwoman Christine Quinn, who will most likely be our next mayor.

There’s plenty in the piece worth reading, but one part that caught our eye was when our current head honcho, Michael Bloomberg, revealed himself as an ass man:

Later in the evening, the host interrupted me to point out that the mayor himself had just arrived. Did I want to meet him? Sure. My friend and I followed the host over, shook Bloomberg’s hand, and my friend thanked him for his position on gun control. Without even acknowledging the comment, Bloomberg gestured toward a woman in a very tight floor-length gown standing nearby and said, ‘Look at the ass on her.’

To be fair, acknowledging a nice rump is much easier than discussing the intricacies of gun control.
