Once More, With Feeling

One of the most amusing diversions of this election season has been to watch longshot NYC mayoral candidate Bill Thompson hump the President's leg while the President says 'get off me, you mangy mutt, whatever your name is.' But today the President finally deigned to give Thompson his tasty doggy treat. Here's Thompson on getting a "shared shout-out" from the President: "I am excited and proud to receive the endorsement of the President. To have the President of United States get involved in a New York City Mayoral race and endorse me, illustrates that he believes I will win and that I can lead this city." Down, boy!
