The Hammer's Still Got It

Quote of the Year

So the coverage from yesterday's Speakership election is voluminous ... not just in NYC, but all over the United States. Click here for a sampling c/o Google News.

But nothing, and we mean NOTHING, beats the quote from Queens County Party Boss Tom Manton, after he presided from his front-row perch over Quinn's crowning.

Here's what Manton told Michael Scotto of NY1:

“I think she [Speaker Quinn] on her own merits could have done this [win the Speakership]. It's just maybe an afterthought that the county organizations or the bosses got involved in it.”

Now that's Chris Quinn, laugh-out-loud, freakin' hilarious!
