Now on Great Lakes, Great Times, Great Scott: Cotter vs. Jesus and Reagan

Just read this in Deadline Detroit
Would be interested in hearing what folks thought about this Adolph Mongo commentary in Deadline Detroit.

Not the first time he's done this. 2006:


Now on Great Lakes, Great Times, Great Scott: Cotter vs. Jesus and Reagan

I was tempted to say that Mongo gave political consultants a bad name, but...

At worst, it's a counterproductive temper tantrum.  Oh, well, at least it's a opportunity to use the conservatives in the comments as verbal sparring partners.
