Poor Freddie

The New York Post reports the sob story of the week:
FLATTENED FREDDY 700G IN THE HOLE

November 15, 2005 -- Democrat Fernando Ferrer's failed bid for mayor has been hit with another blow — the cash-strapped campaign is running $700,000 in the red, a top adviser said yesterday.

The debt means that Ferrer and his political team will be forced to appeal for donations to help balance the books in the wake of his 20-point defeat at the hands of billionaire Republican incumbent Mike Bloomberg.

"Yes, we do have a debt. Yes, we have a plan to retire that debt," said Luis Miranda, a top Ferrer adviser.

Miranda said a preliminary analysis shows that the campaign is short $700,000.

"We spent more than we had. We have outstanding liabilities that we have to pay," Miranda said.
I'm all broken up inside, as some of you might guess.

My suggestion for Freddie: Al Sharpton didn't work too well for you, so how about asking Al Franken for advice? Franken has been doing a lot of on-air begging recently, and it was Air America that received a highly suspect $875,000 loan from the "Gloria Wise Boys & Girls Club" (which after the scandal was stripped of its "Boys & Girls Club" affiliation).

A pretty good example of why he has no business being elected to hold office; no concept of fiscal responsibility, none, zip, and nada.

Indeed, but as I'll be writing about soon, Bloomberg is irresponsible in his own way.
