Port Authority commissioner Bruce Blakeman wants to be mayor in 2009. We know this because we've read the news stories and we know this because his talking dog tells us.

Seriously--check out his new video (above) that's on air, according to the Observer's Azi Paybarah. He writes, "It's been causing a stir among political operatives who have already seen it on the air. Blakeman's campaign was kind enough to send me a copy of it upon first request." It's like a reverse UBU!

Blakeman, a lawyer who is also known these days as the separated husband of Nancy Shevell who is dating Paul McCartney, is running for the Republican spot on the ballot. And that would pit him against John Catsimatidis, of the Gristede's fortune. All we can really say is watch your ass, Beverly Hills Chihuahua!
