Can We Get Some Adult Supervision Over Here?

Just as we were about to change topics away from the political parties, we get a food fight between the two major party Chairmen. Luckily for the public spectators, the Chairman of the Libertarian Party, Tim Maguire, is all growed up and hasn't engaged in name-calling.

True to form, the vitriolic and hyperbolic Ed Treacy, Chairman of the County Democratic Party, denounced Mayor Ballard (R) for not leading the charge to fix the financial quagmire that is the Capital Improvement Board (CIB) and called for him to step down from his Mayor-ship. Yah, Ed ! Like that's going to happen. (read the press release here)

Then, Ed Treacy-wanna be, Tom John, Chairman of the County Republican Party, denounced former Mayor Peterson (D) for giving away the store to Jim Irsay and the Colts. He stopped short of calling for Peterson to step down from his former-Mayor-ship. (read item here)

Do you think as kids that Ed and Tom got swirlies and wedgies and are now spending their 'adult' days getting back at the world?

Heaven forbid that the two major political parties should move forward and work together for the betterment of our community and earn our respect in return.
