But I Need That 3rd Boat

Bloomberg is doing a valuable service in allowing me to stop pretending to have any respect for people I have long suspected deserve no respect.
Bloomberg’s sexism, like that of fellow New York City billionaire Donald Trump, has been prolific and well-documented, but for some reason, the stories about him don’t seem to have taken hold. He is still being embraced by the Democratic establishment as a viable option for its presidential nominee. He surged to third place in several 2020 polls this week; the Democratic National Committee changed its rules to allow him to participate in the next primary debate; House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said his presence in the primary is a “positive one.”
OK it's not that valuable a service, I admit, but silver linings I guess.
