Cream Pies Needed in Detroit

That America's most liberal city has become an unlivable hellhole is hardly surprising, in light of the folks in charge of it. The latest episode:

Detroit City Council President Monica Conyers had to be restrained during a confrontation last week with Councilman Kwame Kenyatta in which she hurled insults at Kenyatta about his hearing aid, health and education. …
Sources who described the incident on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter said the Feb. 4 argument escalated after Conyers called Kenyatta stupid, following his insistence that she submit in writing her request to cut his budget.
When Kenyatta asked her what she said, Conyers responded he needed to learn how to talk to a woman.
Kenyatta shot back that when he was with a woman, he would do so. That prompted Conyers to yell at Kenyatta that he was stupid, citing his lack of a college degree, to tell him he "can't hear" — a dig at his hearing aid — and to try to rub in his face rumors that Kenyatta has cancer.
As at least one council staffer and a council security officer restrained Conyers while she tried to walk toward Kenyatta, he retorted that he hears just fine, doesn't have cancer and told her she needs help. Kenyatta made a report with the council's security unit about the incident, which took place in his office.

As Kenyatta observes, this is "classical Monica Conyers." She was involved in a bar fight right before taking office, and called the Council President "Shrek" during a council meeting. If this wasn't such a good time to be a moonbat in government, she might look into a career in professional wrestling.

As went Detroit, so goes America. Conyers is married to John Conyers, the very powerful Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, who has been making noise about throwing George Bush and members of his administration in jail, to the delight of the nutroots.

If only Conyers and Kenyatta had been armed with pies.
