You've Got To Be Kidding Me Part 17
Although I couldn't find it on their website at time of publish, the crappiest paper in Milwaukee, the Shepherd Express(paper not even worthy enough for me to wipe my arse with) released their annual Best of Milwaukee list. I happen to know this because a buddy of mine was in attendance last night at the awards banquet at LakeFront Brewery.
Take a wild guess who the best local politician is. Go ahead. Okay, I will give you a couple of hints. He has two names and IDs. Not enough? He has an illegitimate child. Still no? Wow, you must not have been paying attention to anything lately. Okay, he committed perjury. He started a fight at a "peaceful" protest. He shouted obscenities at employees of a Blockbuster Video in Wauwatosa. His father wants to pick off white people on Hwy 45 with a sniper rifle. He wants Hugo Chavez to be his ally. He wants to use Miller Park to host "Crenshaw Style" cruising. Still don't have it?
It's 'Effin Michael McGee/Jackson Jr.!*
I mean, WTF?!? Seriously? You picked a criminal/politician(I know that is an oxymoron) as the best local politician? The same one getting recalled as we speak? Really? GTFO!
I am appalled. This is why we live in a crime ridden city. That can only be the answer. Just incredible.
Uggh. Okay. That's off my shoulders. On a side note, the same awards banquet awarded Mayor Tom Barrett as best local personality. That was over Gousha. So.... you picked a guy with absolutely no personality over a great television personality? Uh huh. Credibility? Nah, I don't think so.
*Willie Hines and Willie Wade were on the ballot too. Why did Wade not win this? Incredible. A criminal, a slum lord and a D7 alderman I never heard of(probably best for him, must not be screwing up too badly).
