Mayor Daley Stuck on Silly.

Answering charges that as mayor of Chicago from the retired personnel director for the city’s Department of Streets and Sanitation that all tollbooths are fully staffed on the Chicago Skyway so as not to delay him as his chauffeur-driven car travels from his summer home in Grand Beach, Michigan to Chicago, the city’s chief executive responded this way:
“It’s the silliest thing I’ve ever heard in my life. It really is silly. It’s silly, silly, silly. It is just silly. Silliness. It is silly. Completely silly…You’ve been on [the Skyway]. Come on. It’s silly…You know me. That is the silliest thing I’ve ever heard.”

Rather, when a mayor who is also a lawyer and former prosecutor is so inarticulate and mind-numbed that his vocabulary is mired in kid language without elucidation, it shows real poverty of thought. Pathetic. And to think that the late Dan Weil, one of Daley’s all-time dedicated ego massagers, insisted at one time that this man is qualified to be president—well, that was silly, silly, silly.


  1. Daley said it was "silly", but he didn't say that it didn't happen.

  2. he would be on the first floor processing parking tickets - that is if he had the political clout to get that job in the first place.
