Someone Tell Mark Dayton

Outgoing Chicago Mayor Richard M. "Shanks" Daley earns the Mr. Dilettante Strange New Respect Award for the following statement:

"This is a much more difficult economy than we have ever seen," Daley said. "This economy is not going to change around tomorrow. I wish it was, but it will not change."

Daley said that increasing taxes was not the solution.

"If anybody believes they can increase taxes today, I think they're out of their mind," he said.

Preach it, brother!

far be it for me to laud Babbling Boy, but this was a pretty interesting retrospective on Daley by a guy who has spent a lot of time observing and criticizing him over the years.
