McPhail endorses Kilpatrick

Detroit says, "What the fuck?!?"

"Kwame Kilpatrick and I have agreed on 95 percent of things that have come through" the council, said McPhail. "We have disagreed on some things, but we have done so in a very respectful and kind manner."

For the non-Detroiters in the room, allow me to tell you a tale to two bureaucrats; in this corner, we have Sharon McPhail, a three-year veteran of the Detroit City Council, and certifiably batty. In the other corner, we have Kwame Kilpatrick, Detroit's current mayor and opportunist extraordinaire. Sharon and Kwame have a contentious relationship to say the least, culminating most notably in McPhail's accusation that Kilpatrick had rigged her office massage chair in an effort to electrocute her. And, of course, who could forget the Sambo Awards earlier this year, when McPhail accused the Hip-Hop Mayor of selling out to the white man.

Needless to say, this morning's endorsement makes perfect sense. After all, without Kwame, the City Council might actually have to do something other than taunt the Mayor's office. And where's the fun in that?

Oh, and on the topic of endorsements, I would like to announce that Blood on My Teeth officially endorses Joey Harrington for mayor of Detroit. He's already got all the white suburbanites hating him--isn't that a prerequisite for inhabiting the Manoogian?
