Goodbye, Mayor Mumbles - The Week

Mayor for a New America

$28.00


Thomas Menino - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Raised in a blue-collar household, his Boston accent so thick that even natives would occasionally miss a word or two, he was a former insurance salesman with modest academic credentials and no political aspirations higher than the mayoral suite. “Mayor Mumbles,” wags called him for his less-than-eloquent diction.

At a second news conference two hours later, Menino, who is now in his sixth term and the longest-serving mayor in city history, finally appeared, having been wheeled up in a wheelchair, his shirt untucked, a hospital bracelet on his wrist. Menino spoke for less than a minute before turning the press conference over to Patrick and his police chief. The mayor had been escorted there from Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where he had been recovering from surgery to repair a leg broken the week before. Menino sounded groggy, though it was unclear if that was a lingering effect of being laid up or just the verbal tics of someone affectionately known as Mayor Mumbles.

    Phew!!
    You Coloradans should see the video of Mayor Mumbles dissing the Broncos–this is the kind of knucklehead politicians we get in Massachusetts, due to an incestuous one party state and its especially bad when that one party is the Dems. Congrats to your Broncos for making the playoffs–may the best team win on Sat.
