It's Hammer Time

The Daddy of all Daddies

Here's what we know.

Ass-kissing time is all but over.

Our sassy seven have done just about all that they can do - funneling money, lending bodies, debating the issues (ummm ... well ... not so much), giving advice, consulting rabbis, brokering deals, passing legislation, making promises, and so on and so on.

Now it's time for the daddy of all daddies to step up to the plate and let 'em rip. It's time for Queens County Chair, Thomas J. Manton, to lay down the law and anoint the next City Council Speaker.

That's right, people. It's time for our electeds to bow down before the ONE they really serve...

In case you had any lingering doubts, this is how it's going to get done - with a bit of help from the Bronx County Chair - and this year, maybe even with some help from Brooklyn's as well.

Word on the street is that an announcement could come as early as tomorrow. We'll see...

But in the mean time, in case you've never had the pleasure, click on any of the following links to read a bit more about Thomas J. Manton - your unelected representative.

Look out for any one of the dark horses. All this support that everyone keeps giving to DeBlasio and Quinn is a joke. This race is classic tortoise and hare, and those two bunnies have run their course.

I hope you're right, 11:31. although I wouldn't mind seeing DeBlasio become speaker, I hate the idea of Christine Quinn winning that position. It would be Miller, Part II; there needs to be some change!
