The Emperor's New Clothes

Mayor Palmer's sartorial pictorial in the September Esquire just hit the newsstands. Check out page 220.
Since the copy is a little hard to read, I will transcribe it here for you:
Doug Palmer, 55 Fifth Term
TRENTON Pop. 85, 403
Greatest triumph: Changing the police department through a referendum. You take on the police - and I got rid of the fire chief, too - and they're bonded to kick your butt.
Best part: You know how they say you walk down the street and everybody stops to talk to you? Yeah, well, when they stop doing that is when you've got a problem.
Two-button wool suit ($1,995) by Dolce and Gabbana; cotton shirt ($490) by Domenico Vacca; silk tie ($125) by Dunhill.
AFTER MY THIRD TERM, I GOT EIGHTY SEVEN PERCENT OF THE VOTE, AND I REALIZED THAT THEY WEREN'T SAYING THAT THEY LOVED ME; THEY WERE SAYING, WE WANT TO GIVE YOU A MANDATE.

What a loser!! He thinks of himself as being the greatest thing since sliced bread. If only the truth could come out about his past we and the rest of the world would see what a liar, drug addicted dope this guy is.

are you kidding me? this city is a damn mess ~ the ONLY reason he gets elected over and over is because the majority of our citizens have NO CLUE about what is going on and will simply vote to their pastor's suggestion... the pastor that is close to Palmer and have done quite well with him nearby.

Trenton, SADLY, has become the ideal location where those involved in office have given up hope and realize there is more to be gained by patting each other on the back than to deal with our problems ~ why try to enact efforts that will take 8 years to produce results when you're only in office for less than 4? it's not like we elected you to DO antying, did we?

what an ass ~ promoting himself like this when the city he was on watch for falls apart.
