On what planet is Mike Bloomberg a liberal?

What is David Holmes talking about?

Earlier today, below a very evil-looking photo of a very rich Michael Bloomberg, Politico published a list of the top ten political donors of 2014. And much to the glee of conservatives, the two biggest spenders by a mile were hedge fund partner Tom Steyer and ex-New York mayor Michael Bloomberg — both supporters of predominantly liberal causes.

Looking for Green shoots on election day

So I went to my polling place and voted for Eugene Puryear and some other DC Statehood/Green Party candidates. There is a real possibility that he could win.
