This was the not first time a Murdoch outlet tried to make de Blasio look inept over snow removal.
The Wall Street Journal tried it last time with a front cover photo purporting to show unplowed Manhattan streets as the press covered de Blasio shoveling the side walk outside his own house - again looking to get the meme out that Socialist de Blasio just couldn't handle the snow removal effectively.
As I posted in the afternoon, the Daily News, New York Magazine and Gothamist all mocked the Post and the Upper East Side whiners yesterday before de Blasio made the whole thing moot by agreeing with the Post that more could have been done with the UES snow removal.
But that hasn't stopped Gothamist from continuing to mock the UES:
The mewls from the tiny, snowed-in Stradevariuses emanating from the Upper East Side have reached the sensitive ears of Mayor Bill de Blasio, who has just released a statement acknowledging his abject failure to properly plow the streets frequented by the city's precious Tax Base. "While the overall storm response across the city was well-executed, after inspecting the area and listening to concerns from residents earlier today," de Blasio says, removing David Koch's right sock and slowly, yet firmly, massaging his foot with tea tree oil, "I determined more could have been done to serve the Upper East Side."
"More could have been done to serve the Upper East Side." Feel better, Muffie?
