oh, also?

On my flight out of Cleveland, I sat right behind this guy...

Who is a member of this group and is doing his best to make Cleveland just like the gun-free paradise of Chicago.

I really wanted to tap him on the shoulder and say (with my most charming smile, natch) "Hey, Mr. Mayor! I'm on my way to the NRA convention! And I carry a concealed handgun every time I visit your city! Whoo!!"

Instead I just quietly smirked to myself and admired his impossibly tidy coiffure.

Thank you for serving, great stuff!

Probably best you didn't tap him on the shoulder. Might have become a Romney-vs-rapper non-moment, except you would have had to defend yourself with a whack to his head with your prosthesis.

Either way, I'm sure he would have thrown his "victim politician attacked by right-winger on plane" card. Pity. I'd have loved to see video of his hysterics after he was outed, and your courteous introduction.

Enjoy the convention; wish I was there.

I saw a werewolf drinking a pina colada in Trader Vics.

And his hair... was perfect.

Frankie is indeed a piece o' work. But then again, the mayors been going 'round the drain here since Ralph P Jerk (deliberate)and his OL turned down an invite to the White House because it was on their bowling night.
But anybody is an improvement over the rep from Middle Earth (Denis!) and Janie.....

Hey now -- don't forget George Voinovich (Voinovich, from the Serbian, meaning "pale green pants with no one inside them").

I suppose you could argue that George Forbes was the actual mayor of Cleveland during the Voinovich figureheadorate.
