Not an endorsement I'd be eager to pocket.

Agreed for anywhere but Massachusetts. Bloomberg has become synonymous with big-government nanny-statism. Though in a state like Massachusetts, that could win him votes.

Net positive for Brown, of course -- it meshes well with his public image.

It'd be bigger for Brown to get Mayor Menino's endorsement, though...  Wink

Mr Moderate at 54/10 is a total joke, he is a horror.

I think it is very possible that Vladimir Putin could be the Antichrist.  That is nothing more than an educated guess on my part.

That's not really the case. In Massachusetts, Bloomberg is a symbol of New York.

Granted, an endorsement of this kind is not the sort of thing that'll hurt Brown either.

A shameless agrarian collectivist with no respect for private property or individual rights.

Yeah that's right, I said Siam. Why don't you go tell Pedro Martinez about it.

The fundraiser is really the most important part of this story. Bloomberg's presence means it'll draw anyone with NYC business connections out of the woodwork to give to Brown. $5,000 is a small price to pay to be able to talk to the mayor about a $2 billion project, after all.
