And so democracy ends not with a bang, but with a whimper - term limits are for little People

As NY1 reports, "the controversial term limits extension bill passed by the City Council will likely be law next week. Mayor Michael Bloomberg has scheduled a bill-signing ceremony for Monday. The bill allows the city's elected officials to run for three consecutive four-year terms – up from two. The council narrowly passed the measure last week by a vote of 29-22 over the objections of opponents who said it should be up to voters to decide."

We applaud the 22 who voted against this heinous overruling by fiat of not one, but two, public referenda.

After 9/11, Rudy's hinting of seeking a brief term-limit repeal and third term was met with great caterwauling. "Mike" Bloomberg is a, however, a liberal beloved by the NYC intelligentsia.

Compare and contrast.
