Quinn's Snow Job?
It seems like Winnie Hu is as puzzled as are others about Speaker Quinn's sudden case of reformia. In a piece today in the Times, Hu profiles Quinn's latest bout of reform against a backdrop of ass-kissing and cynicism.
The ass-kissing continues to come from colleague Council Member Eric Gioia, whose balls Quinn so obviously squeezed in a manner he's never experienced before. And the cynicism, well, it comes from the likes of advocate, Gene Russianoff (the scrappy Straphanger) and Council Member Charles Barron (the "mental health = slapping white people" dude).
For what it's worth, here's our thought of the day ... Could it be that Quinn is simply laying the land for a more favorable term limits battle?
Yes, you can count us in the cynics' corner...
