A Wolfson at the Door

If you want a chance to speak to those in power directly, here's your chance. Both David Cantor of the DOE and Howard Wolfson, chief architect of Bloomberg's third term run, are responding to Bill Thompson's scathing piece on the mayor's education record on the Huffington Post.

When you spend over 36 million dollars on your campaign by the middle of July and your poll numbers start to tank, you send out the big dogs. Luckily, on the internet, you're as big a dog as anyone, and here's your chance to piss on the mayor's tree by posting in response to Wolfson and Cantor. Here's the tinkle I let go on HuffPo, which I got from the Times:

Isn't it correct, Mr. Wolfson, that you said in 2005 that "Michael Bloomberg is an out-of-touch billionaire who can"t relate to the problems of ordinary New Yorkers."? What brought about this change of heart as it relates to this billionaire?

Thompson has gone from 22 points down to 10 points down. Bloomberg is under 50% for the first time in a long time. That means the race is up for grabs. Let your voice be heard.

Don't tell anyone I said that. It could be bad luck. But the fact that Bloomie has gone so negative so early is indeed encouraging.
