A wet slap in the face?

Bill and Josiah both have pointed out what they see as a lack of humor in today's "proclamation" by Chattanooga Mayor Ron Littlefield.

I'm left sort of speechless by the whole event, myself. I just don't know where to start, so I'll refrain from editorializing. It's probably best.

Just one thing, though: "[T]he water will be delivered on Wednesday by his aide Matt Lea wearing a coonskin cap." Nope. Still choking on a torrent of expletives and unintelligible, dumbfounded utterances that have bottlenecked in my craw and rendered me silent. Maybe later.

UPDATE: I was waiting for this; and it should be noted that thoughts of high school antics accompanied my anticipation.

Are you really surprised? Over the past few years, Littlefield has shown that he and his staff are incapable of making sound decisions for the city.

Be happy that he decided to go for the cheap laugh instead of influencing policy. Yes, the coonskin hat is beyond stupid, but this is far from the worst thing Littlefield has ever done.
