The Dollar Menu

There's a popular fast food commercial playing on television these days that asks "What can I get for a dollar?"

"Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg pulled out a narrow re-election victory on Tuesday, as voters angry over his maneuver to undo the city's term limits law and his extravagant campaign spending provided an unexpected lift to his vastly underfinanced challenger, William C. Thompson Jr."

"The billionaire mayor had poured $90 million of his own fortune into the race, a sum without equal in the history of municipal politics that gave him a 14-to-1 advantage in campaign spending."

. . . . . . . .

Sigh. I think Charles Wesley Mumbere's personal journey from nurse's aide to king of the Rwenzururu Kingdom is a slightly more interesting read at this point.

A kingdom is a kingdom is a kingdom.
