What is it about Detroit politics that turns nearly every one who gets elected into the same kind of idiot? Didn't we all think that Charles Pugh, after spending years being part of the process that unearthed and reported on the stupid things that Detroit politicos pulled, would be smart enough not to do the same things the media was purportedly aghast over? And yet the first thing I see this morning is a story that he has hired his step-mother as an aide.
And am I the only one who enjoyed reading the list of what the Kilpatrick's spent their money on from October 2008 through October 2009? $2,676 on Maid Pro maid service? Do you have a maid, 'cuz I sure don't and I don't owe the city of Detroit a million dollars either! I'm also thinking that if they hadn't spent $485 on Chick-Fil-A and $303 on cheesecake and $98 at Smoothie King then they wouldn't have needed to spend $330 on a weight loss center and $145 on Beachbody fitness programs.
I'm just sayin'.
