On Tuesday, Mike Bloomberg won reelection as Mayor of New York City. To do so, he had to do an end run around the will of The People - twice they voted for term limits, but Bloomberg, hungry for a third term in power, had the City Council eliminate the law.

After spending over a hundred million dollars of his own money, Bloomberg won by only about 5% over his Democratic rival, by a total of just over 50,000 votes.

So he has his third term, but with no mandate by the people, and I'm sure his rivals and enemies will make sure it's not an easy ride for him.

In the meantime, the televersion of Mayor Mike Bloomberg has made three fictional appearances in Toobworld since he first became "Hizzoner". And that qualifies him for membership in the TV Crossover Hall Of Fame. And since this month is something of a political theme, and since we're inducting "League Of Themselves" members into the Hall during the first week as part of our tenth anniversary celebration, Bloomberg is the inductee into the Hall for the first week of November.

As one angry over Bloomberg's trampling of the people's decision, just don't expect me to welcome him.....
