Stroger hurls insults at Cook County Commissioners
The Chicago Tribune has an article on Cook County Board President John Stroger's (D) name-calling streak in which he's called insurgent Commissioner Forrest Claypool (D) "phony." He also called Commissioner Larry Suffredin (D) "cheesy" (although, there I think he was just hungry). Strogers attacks were bipartisen. He called the Republican commissioners "five losers." That reminds me, I've been a little lax in my draft campaign -- since high-profile Democrats and Republicans will be too chicken to take on Stroger, I'm hoping to recruit a celebrity opponent to run. Any suggestions? How about Bill Murray. Wouldn't he make a kick ass county board president? Sammy Sosa's out, obviously. But what about Ronnie Woo Woo? But seriously, someone, anyone, please run.
