Let's think about that video and the upcoming interview, shall we?
By the way, the video was LWC post 1500, some applause, please! Thank you.
Now, you can call Mayor Herenton many things, but stupid isn't one of them. It has been suspected by many that he didn't leave until now because he wanted some say in who replaced him; he said he ran in 2007 to protect the city from Herman Morris and Carol Chumney. Well, while Carol's not doing so hot in our poll over on the right, she's giving Wharton a run for his money at this WREG poll.
Maybe he realizes that Wharton has had slippage because people are a little tired of him as well, and because they are figuring out that he wants Wharton to succeed him. What better way to get AC back in the good graces of those East Memphis and Midtown white folk than to take veiled shots at him like "it would have been UGLY" and "I would have DESCRIBED him"?
The Mayor did not fall off the turnip truck yesterday, people, given the last thing that he wants is a Chumney victory.
Well played, sir, well played, I doff my cap to you.
