The mayor declares Mayor Daley Day!

"Asked if he had appointed the inspector general to issue such reports, the mayor shrugged and replied, 'Today, everybody can do anything they want, I guess.'"

Unfortunately, that was yesterday, so we're back to just Mayor Daley doing whatever he wants, but congratulations if you had time to, like, privatize your street's speed bumps.

I can't remember who it was who said that you can gauge how worried the mayor is by his incoherence. I wouldn't say that his response to the inspector general's report was him in rare form, but it's at least a 6 out of 10. If he ever gets caught red-handed in Blagoesque machinations, expect him to speak in tongues.
