Say it isn't so, Mickey
Mickey Kearns enjoys ice cream, while supporters are questioning how he could make a deal with the "Status-quo" Scanlons.
Some people are asking the Blogger, where the heck has Mickey Kearns been, lately? One of his closest advisers spoke to me on condition of anonymity, and said many people are unhappy with Kearns' approval of the Chris Scanlon appointment.
"Mickey likes to say Jimmy Griffin was his mentor. Well, Griffin hated career party hacks like the Scanlons and would be rolling over in his grave had he known Kearns was making deals with them. If Griffin were still with us, Kearns would have never stooped this low." the source added.
Kearns' people are trying to sell this off as good for the neighborhood, but most people can see it for what it is-baloney. I'm hearing Kearns told "Charlie" Fisher, if he did not accept the backroom deal with Scanlon (involving Fisher's $47,000/yr job), he would not "be able" to support him in a primary. And Fisher, being a guy with no real political backing himself (or balls for that matter), accepted. What does Kearns mean when he says he would not "be able" to support Fisher? I remember the days when Mickey made decisions by himself. What's the shelf life on independence around here?
The Rooster needs to put his foot down and remind Kearns who got him there. I cannot believe a man with the Rooster's pride and toughness would allow Kearns to sleep with the enemy. Around here, you're either independent or you're not. "Pray that you might not enter into temptation, Mickey"...
