Mayor Bloomberg's rant

Did you see NY City mayor Michael Bloomberg's outrageous comments regarding cigarette sales on Indian reservations? He said David Paterson should grab a cowboy hat and a shotgun and stand in the middle of the thruway, if they start burning tires:

Now, why every governor, and I've said this to David Paterson, I said, you know, get yourself a cowboy hat and a shotgun. If there's ever a great video it's you standing in the middle of the New York State Thruway saying, you know, 'Read my lips: The law of the land is this and we're going to enforce the law,'" Bloomberg said on WOR radio.

So, what would the NY press say if Carl Paladino had said the same thing? They would be having a field day. They'd be demanding apologies and calling him insensitive to all ethnic groups. I guess it's not always what is said but who says it and whose pockets they are lining...
