Kwame, it's time. The man cannot GOVERN anymore. His own city council has said he needs to go in a 7-0 vote. Some conventions have gone elsewhere. And I could care less about his having an affair. For all we know, getting some tang on the side probably helped him govern a little better. Lord knows where is wife was all those times. And who better to sleep with than your own Chief of Staff.
But I hope the tang was good, b/c he has embarassed and screwed over the city he claims to love so much. And it's got to be HARD to embarass Detroit. Especially when you can get a house for a little over 20K. But outside of the infidelity and idiotic text messaging, Kwame messes around and spends city funds to settle a lawsuit so no one would find out. And what was this lawsuit, oh just from the police officers he's fired after they were investigating his foolishness. Nice. And now Detroit is out of a cool $9 million.
Now he's invoking things like lynching and being on a mission from God. First point, Kwame ain't no Medgar Evars or even a Maynard Jackson. He (like many other corrupt black leaders) throw out civil rights as a way to deflect attention from white folks. And white folks want no part of an angry black man. Ask Jeremiah Wright.
And maybe we should start keeping a running tally of dudes that say they are on a Mission from God: George W. Bush, Kwame Kilpatrick, Jerry Falwell, Martin Luther King Jr, David Duke, creators of BET, Ahmadinejad, and Osama Bin Laden. And I'm just getting started. What makes it so bad is that ALL these guys are praying to the same God, yet they are on opposing sides. The Mission from God stuff does not fly (no pun intended) in a post 9-11 world. No one prays to God more than terrorists, and that's real. Once people get convinced they are on God's special mission, it really goes to hell.
Kwame, do your city a favor and do like Judge Mathis said, get out of it. Clear your name if you are so inclined if you can pull it off with a $700 an hour lawyer. I would be surprised myself. Should be fun to watch.
