Boris Johnson: The World's Mayor
Conservative MP Boris Johnson of England once joked that his favorite politician, his role model in fact, is the mayor in the movie "Jaws."
Boris Johnson, perhaps the wittiest columnist in the English language, is now running for mayor of London. Usually here at Iowa Political Alert we keep things to Iowa -- or at least inside the nation's borders. But for years we have been following Boris' columns which he writes weekly.
Rudy Giuliani may be the "nation's mayor" but one can make a case that the brilliantly irreverant Boris would be the world's mayor if elected.
