Hilariously, the New York Times Tries to Smear Bill de Blasio and Now Everybody Like Him Even Better

Maybe the Pope will be the next to endorse Bill de Blasio for Mayor of New York, now that the New York Times, in an amusingly bungled attempt to depict a young de Blasio as possibly a radical, ends up makes him sound like a saint.

People we've spoken to about the article "exposing" de Blasio's early volunteer work with a Catholic social justice organization in Nicaragua said it made them like de Blasio even more than they had before. What a guy!

Alex Pareen, of Salon, does a great job picking apart the Times' transparent attempts to makes the de Blasio of 30 years ago look like possibly a Commie.

A sample from Salon: "De Blasio, we’re told, went to Nicaragua to help distribute food and medicine in the middle of a war between left and right. But he returned with something else entirely: a vision of the possibilities of an unfettered leftist government.' Unfettered! I don’t like the sound of that."

Sorry Quinn didn't work out for you, NY Times. Maybe you should just officially embrace your inner Republican and Joe Lhota.

UPDATE: In related news, President Barack Obama marveled at Dante de Blasio's afro on Tuesday, quipping that he had “the same hairdo I had in 1978.” President Obama endorsed de Blasio on Monday. (Politicker)
