Detroit Mayoral Comedy Continues

Sometimes, these things just write themselves.... Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick today named the city's General Council Sharon McPhail to represent him in proceedings before Governor Jennifer Granholm aimed at forcibly removing him from office.

Ms. McPhail is a former member of the Detroit City Council and failed candidate for mayor. She famously accused Mr. Kilpatrick of rewiring her chair massager in an attempt to electrocute her and called him "Sambo Sell-out of the Year" in 2005 during their campaign battle. Her words, not mine.

In recent months, she has been a frequent Mayoral spokesperson and guest on local talk radio. Her inability to put together coherent sentences has drawn ridicule, even from some left-leaning hosts. It should be interesting to see what she has to say to the Governor....
