I can usually be counted on to champion Democrats over Republicans, but today Republican New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg stole my heart. If he were to run for president, I might vote for him. Why? Because he has the guts to tackle the single most important issue of our time, an issue the mainstream media repeatedly ignores.
I'm not talking about Terrorism, genocide in Darfur, the outsourcing of jobs, illegal immigration, the EU constitution crisis, the Michael Jackson trial, the Supreme Court decision to uphold the federal government's right to ban marijuana (although the legalization of marijuana is extremely important) or even the Downing Street Memo. The issue I'm referring to makes the ones just listed seem trivial and trite.
Michael Bloomberg finally tackled the problem of long lines in women's restrooms. Today, June 7, 2005, he signed off on the Potty Parity legislation requiring all new buildings to install twice as many bathroom stalls in women's restrooms than in men's.
Other politicians should take note. This should definitely be a Federal matter. And if anyone running for president wants my vote in 2008, this issue must be part of his or her platform.
Am I right ladies?
