    He really should change his name to Stanley or Black and Decker for being a tool...

    I grew up hearing that the Democratic Party could put up just about anybody and win a mayoral election in Pittsburgh, no matter how unqualified that person may be. Apparently, I heard correctly.

    Like I posted on the other thread -- this guy is an embarrassment to Pittsburgh and Exhibit A about what is wrong with our political system in this country. What a joke he is.

    That's the kind of silly shit politicians do when they're trying to jump on a team bandwagon.

    I don't think it's unique to Pittsburgh.

    A joke? Nonsense.

    He's simply a Steelers fanboi.

    Oh, wait ...

    No someone posted this article as part of a post on that running conference championship game threads.

    And while I agree some of this is silliness politicians engage in -- Mayor Luke is a different kind of political imbecile.

    It has been a few months though since he said or did something asinine and immature so I suppose he was just trying to make sure people didn't forget what a low I.Q. moron Pittsburgh has in charge of things right now......

    I'm gonna flog myself for this one anyway.
    Should have figured someone would have posted it at some point before this.

    The mayor of Baltimore has her own troubles:

    By the way, you've got to get to the fourth paragraph to find out she's a Democrat.
     
  11. It's Baltimore. They probably didn't need to mention it at all. Balmer hasn't elected a Republican since 1963.

    But keep chasing windmills, hondo.

    If she's a Republican, it's in the headline.
