Will the Real Speaker Quinn...

... Please Stand Up

Christine Quinn will make her first appearance tonight as Speaker on NY1's Inside City Hall.

And we're certain that if nothing else, two things are going to happen.

1) The Speaker will be congratulated, and lauded for being the first female and lesbian to hold the post; and

2) She's going to face a line of questioning on the Council's plans to alter their own term limits legislatively - in spite of voters twice willing term limits into existence.

Problem is, we're not sure which Speaker Quinn is going to show up tonight. Will it be the one who made this promise to her colleagues? Or, will it be the one who most recently started inching backwards?

We are as curious to find out as you are...

Oh come on now, unless you're looking for some good copy, you know perfectly well that Quinn often does not keep her word. She lies to her constituents on a regular basis, so why would she bother to keep her word on term limits?

Of course ICH will ask those two questions -- someone has to program Dominic Carter to fill up the time.

Quinn is a decent and honorable public servant. And I'm someone who frequently opposes her on public policy issues. Get a life. This blog is worthless.
