Bloomberg to Catch 'Xanadu,' Not Palin
Wednesday, September 03, 2008
New York, NY —
All eyes will be on presumptive Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin as she makes her big speech at the Republican national convention tonight. But not Mayor Bloomberg. He says he’s got other plans.
BLOOMBERG: I actually am going to the theater tonight. To see Whoopi Goldberg in Xanadu ("ohhhh.")
REPORTER: Palin has not made any public speeches since Friday, when John McCain picked her for the No. 2 spot on his ticket.
