We Love Our Toys
Especially the Speakermobile
We thought it random enough when the minister at today's ceremonies prayed for "Speaker Quinn," before she was officially Speakerized. But given what we recently discovered, he may not have been so far off base.
It so happens that Speaker-select Quinn (aka Council Member Christine Quinn at the time) drove up to the City Council in the black Suburban Speakermobile, with full security detail in tow (Gifford Miller style).
The aesthetics ... ummmm ... odd.
