Bloomberg’s Lie
by

I haven’t mentioned it in this space in few weeks, but I’m now writing every Friday for Brainwash. In today’s column I note the widespread and persistent assumption that Michael Bloomberg has to be lying when he says he won’t run for president.

I notice that Jonah Goldberg, writing on Bloomberg’s troubling utopianism, mentions this phenomenon but says it isn’t a big deal: “Such lies serve as useful political fictions allowing politicians to test the waters.” I dunno; it seems to me that with his pledge to finish his term as mayor, Bloomberg’s gone beyond the usual “I’m focused on the present” deflections.
