When is a Joke Not a Joke?

When it comes true, at the expense of children.

I joked last week
, after Cathie Black's firing, that Mayor4Life Bloomberg...

"...conducted the same exhaustive search for Black’s replacement that he did for Black herself, by which I mean Walcott happened to be in the room at the time."

As it turns out, that was no joke. According to the Post, Bloomberg "...looked over his shoulder and saw Walcott," said a second City Hall veteran. "At least he didn't look across the room at a cocktail party, as he did when he found Black."

If you wonder why Mayor4Life didn't bother with scouring the country for the best education leader he could find, the answer is obvious. He isn't looking for someone who can bring something to the table educationally. He's looking for a stooge who will unblinkingly carry out his policies.

He didn't have to look any further than over his shoulder. And that's just not funny.

You are 100% correct regarding the idea that Walcott will be his puppet !! Bloomberg is a real stinkeroo-to bad that he will never realize this, he is much too full of himself
