    Keith, we all know, you are an unhappy bottom.

  • Keith B.

    I don't care about black people? Thanks, Kanye. I voted for Gray both times, but I'm just counting down the days until he does something that rubs your walker the wrong way so you can come here and accuse him of not being black enough, or being a light-skinned brother who can't know what's right for the city. How about it, pops?

  • Jon Bon Jovi

    I am watching George Bush on Oprah. He said, he was hurt and angry by Kane West racist remarks.

    Keith, I am white and in my late forties. I guess I am old too? LOL

    I voted for D.C. Council Chair Vincent Gray because I thought he was less of the two evils.

  • Keith B.

    Kanye making Mike Meyers uncomfortable on live TV was the only good thing to come out of that bad situation. I'd say you are only "too old" when you start to forget how bad the "old days" were and try to push that crap on everyone else. If you think blacks should stay out of bethesda, like buddy noodlez, then I think you are too old.

  • Jon Bon Jovi

    Keith B., you never anwsered the question asked of you? How old are you? Many baby boomers are out living your generation. Do you refer to your mother and father as being old? Being 48 is in my prime and I don't need Viagra.

  • Sally

    With Vince Gray supporters like those on here, it's going to be a great time seeing this One City thing implode among the racists, homophobes, and general, all-around idiots.

    LOL it's true! Evey DC black mayor since marion (that would be every mayor since marion!) has eventually been accused of not being black enough.
    It's an unfortunate DC pathology.

  • downtown rez

    ...it's going to be a great time seeing this One City thing implode...
    Tragicomedy.
    It's like the Janis-esque masks: laugh now cry later.

  • downtown rez

    Poor Sally is an lonely spinster.

  • Adams Morgan

    Maybe Ward 1 D.C. Councilmember Jim Graham's fomer Chief of Staff can apply for a job with the new administration.

    This is an interesting comment on the Post blog.

    That folks feel that they are so self-important that they decide to move is irrelevant. If you didn't know it, this is a transient town. As long as the federal government operates out of the District of Columbia those vacancies will be filled. That is a non issue.

    I am less than 40 and I have no problem with the "average" age of the transition team. In fact, I respect the fact that those with demonstrated success in running government and with a mastery skill set in their areas of advisement are making recommendations to the incoming Mayor. We may well have an administration made up of people qualified to sit in their positions. Whether they be relatively young or middle aged, they will be "QUALIFIED".

    Look, I spent a good deal of my life in school (through graduate school) and now in the workforce, if you listened to the reasoning of the Fenty loyalists, you would think that education and experience is irrelevant. Which is quite contrary to what Fenty was espousing with school reform.

    Gabe Klein should not be the vicegerent of our transportation network in the city. Too much is at risk and he is too green behind the ear. If you didn't pay attention, the District DOT was denied 25 million dollars in federal transit dollars for streetcars because Klein's folks botched the application. Klein sees his leadership in transportation as "marketing", ignoring the bricks and mortar reality of what is at the heart of transportation. Street and bridge maintenance, traffic services and protecting our infrastructure from the threats of terrorism.

  • noodlez

    @Keith B-NOT INSULTS. REAL TALK HOMEY! YOU COULD BE LATINO, TRANS AND SCOOT ON A VESPA ITS ALL THE SAME BITCH BOY OR GIRL. IT JUST DOESNT MATTER!

    THE PROBLEM AS I SEE IT IS YOUR LAME, WEAK ASS COMMENTS DOESNT BRING ANYTHING TO THE DISCUSSION. NEVER DID. IT'S OBVIOUS YOU MISS MS. MANDY HESS AND HER SATIRICAL COLUMNS AND BECAUSE YOU ARE SO SHALLOW YOU CANT ADAPT. HOME BOY!

    ITS APPARENT DONT LISTEN VERY WELL EITHER. I KEEP TELLIN YOU TO STEP YOUR GAME UP BUT YOU CONSISTANTLY KEEP COMIN WITH YOUR J.V. QUOTES AND BRAIN GAS STINKIN UP THE JOINT.

    DEVELOP YOUR GRAY MATTER SHIT STAIN SHORTY, POST SOME GOOD SHIT, THEN HOLLA AT ME. UNTIL THEN... BEEP! BEEP! MOFO!

  • Truth Hurts

    Classic illustration of why noodlez ought to explore stand up comedy club gigs.

    He's funny, homophobic, profane, bigoted, fake ghetto, ignorant, smart and entertaining. All in one package.

    Low info, simple minded readers routinely cheer him on with "lol, noodlez, lmbao, loving it, etc" back slaps. Perhaps that's all he craves.

    But if he thinks his act is furthering Gray's one city goal, he's not very bright.

  • Anothernative

    Don't forget the Director of DHS who fire career staff and hire consultants to avoid the freeze. I agree and the same applies to that sneaky ass Robin Eavs Jasper Director of DRES, this broad has the DRES so screwed up on hiring practices the whole work force will be walking around with walker's,it's already so short staffed that they can't keep up with the building they have, listening to that (fairy)of a Personel Administrator that is constantly trying to undermind the District's Personel Manual, but we know that things have a way of comming to light. Fire that b**ch.

  • downtown rez

    Real Drez here.
    For the record, Sally's too hot to be a lonely spinster.
    Or at least her writing is. :)

  • SEis4ME

    Truth, and you believe you and DRez are examples of how to be more inclusive and positive? Yeah right.

    You Fenty people will carry your anger until the next election.

  • Me-Bent Adrian

    To those who think a Mass White Exodus is near, there is a slight problem, they're stuck bitches! DC home values have decreased since they've first purchased and I highly doubt that they are willing to take a 30% hit on their home value so that they can flee Black-zilla.

  • Keith B.

    noodlez accusing someone of not having content in their comments? Yeah, you are a comedian. The funniest bit is now I get what the DL in nooDLez stands for.

  • noodlez

    @Keith B-DL STANDS FOR DICK LAYER! YOU NITWIT!

    ONE "ATTA BOY" FO U.
    YOU ARE TRYING AND I CANT FAULT YOUR EFFORT.

    HOWEVER YOU SHOULD'VE JUST ASKED YOUR MOTHER IM SURE SHE WOULD HAVE ENLIGHTENED YOU TO WHAT IT STANDS FOR NOW PARDON ME WHILE I DEAL WITH TRUTH HURTS COMMENT #62

  • Keith B.

    Maybe you should deal with comment #56, nooDLez. Now maybe because of your old age, and the era you grew up in, you and DaddyGrace were brought up being unable to be critical of other black people. I guess I'm not stuck with that "solidarty brother" mentality, because I have no problem calling out your bullshit behavior without having to suggest you're not black enough. My earlier comment stands. Fenty was black enough for you 4 years ago, and now you can't say anything bad about him without first claiming it's only because his skin's light (you have seen photos of Gray, right?). Come on, try it. Be your own man, or turn into dust already.

  • Keith B.

    Oh, and "Dick Layer"? Please! Get this man to the Apollo. Maybe that's what you tell yourself when you're crying alone when your wife's out, or maybe your "friends" are just lying to you...

  • noodlez

    @Truth Hurts-I CRAVE SEVERAL THINGS. ONE MAJOR ONE HAS TO DO WITH THE FEMALE GENITALIA. ANOTHER MAJOR CRAVING I HAVE HAS TO DO WITH SPORTS(ESPECIALLY FOOTBALL). THERE ARE SEVERAL OTHERS BUT SHOUT OUTS AND ADMIRATION ON THE WCP COMMENT SECTION ISNT ONE OF THEM.

    WATCH YOUR WORDS HOMEY. YOU MAY INTERPRET MY COMMENTS TO BE "... funny, homophobic, profane, bigoted, fake ghetto, ignorant, smart and entertaining..."

    LETS ADDRESS THOSE SHALL WE.

    YEAH MY VAIN ATTEMPTS TO BRING HUMOR ISNT ON PAR WITH THE SIDE SPLITTING SHIT THATS POSTED ON HERE ON THE DAILY SO I WOULDNT CALL MY COMMENTS FUNNY.

    THERE IS NOTHING "HOMOPHOBIC" ABOUT MY COMMENTS. THATS A MADE UP WORD FOR FOLK OF YOUR ILK TO LABEL ME AND TO EXPRESS YOUR PASSIVE AGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR. YES I DONT AGREE WITH MALE HOMOSEXUALITY AND IF THOSE FOLK THAT DO PRACTICE THIS ACTIVITY WANT TO BE INCLUDED IN THE MAINSTREAM THEN BY ALL MEANS THEY WILL GET TREATED LIKE EVERYONE ELSE IN THE MAINSTREAM.

    I DOUBT VERY SERIOUSLY THAT I WILL PASS THRU THE SECURITY SCREENING AT THE PEARLY GATES. SO FUCK IT. PROFANITY IT IS.

    EVERYONE PRACTICES OR EXPRESSES SOME FORM OF BIGOTRY ONE WAY OR ANOTHER. THOSE WHO DENY IT ARE IN DENIAL. ITS IN OUR DNA. CONTRARY TO POPULAR BELIEF I AM HUMAN.

    FAKE GHETTO? NAW SLIM. IM BOUT AS GRIMEY AS THEY COME. I USE TO THROW ROCKS AT FORT HANOVER TO DARE THE PO-PO'S TO CHASE ME WHEN THEY USE TO SET UP SHOP IN THE "CORDAS" AND ON HANOVER. THERE IS NOTHING FAKE ABOUT MY GHETTONESS! NOW IF YOU WANT TO CALL MY COMMENTS "GHETTO" AT TIMES-IM GUILTY AS CHARGED.

    THE POSITION MR GRAY IS TAKING IS PROPER, DECENT AND NEEDED FOR THIS CITY. DO I AGREE WITH OR WILL I AGREE WITH EVERYTHING OF AND FROM MR GRAY. HELL NO! BUT I DO AGREE THAT THE SOON TO BE WORST MAYOR WDC EVER HAD NEEDED TO GO BECAUSE OF ALL THE OBVIOUS REASONS. SLIM IM DOWN FOR ONE CITY ASININE RANTS AND ALL.

  • noodlez

    @KEITH B-I VOTED FOR MS LINDA.

    FUCK FENTY AND IT HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH HIS SKIN TONE. HE SOME SHIT AND HE CATERED TO EVERYBODY EXCEPT THOSE WHO HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN LOOKING OUT FOR.

    ONE CITY MOFO!

  • Adams Morgan

    LOL

  • Keith B.

    That was a good reply, noodlez. I salute you (serious). Normally you're sloppy and lazy, just making comments about who licks the most dicks. This was a nice change. A+ would argue again.

    Didn't know you voted for Ms. Cropp, I stand corrected.

  • DCDem

    Of all the candidates in 2006, I went with Marie Johns. I still believe that she was an opportunity lost for the city. Oh, well, at least she found an appointment in the Obama Administration.

  • REALWARD4NDC

    To: MRSWARD4NDC, there's nothing wrong with watching heterosexual adult porn in the privacy of my basement. It's clean and safe fun. Sorry, I don't hook up with drag Queens like youself fake MRSWARD4NDC. I am married to a beautiful black woman.

    Bernard
    Takoma/Ward 4

    To Keith B., I am glad am so popular that you would have to discuss my name. My mother always told me, when people don't talk about you, then it's time to worry. Be careful about wishing death on people or saying old people will die soon because you might die before me, Noodlez, Daddy Grace, and others.

  • Jon Bon Jovi

    Right on WARD4NDC! I am 48 years old and I am in the best shape and health. I only problem I have is with my cholesterol. There's nothing wrong with watching adult straight porn.

    Back on topic, I agree, DCRA is a horrible Agency to deal with. Once a had to visit their former office on North Capital Street, NW and it was a nightmare. I live near Tenlytown and many of the streets in upper Northwest and other parts of D.C. are in horrific condition. I agree DDOT Director Gabe Klein and DCRA Director Linda Argo shouldn't be kept on by the incoming Administration. I am a white male, please don't call me a racist Keith B. on this issue. The President of the United States brings in his or her own people. The mayor of the District should be able to bring in their own people too.

  • Jon Bon Jovi

    Dealing with DMV is a nightmare too.

  • Where’s the lube, dude?

    Dealing with DMV and DCRA is so much better if one can do it while watching porn.
    It's a shame that during these past 4 years DC Gov employees have been blocked from watching porn on government time, and that some have been fired for doing so.
    Where's the Union of Entitled Over The Hill Porn Watchers when you really need them?
    I hate Fenty.

  • Truth Hurts

    Now there's a non sequitur.

  • Adams Morgan

    You can add D.C. Attorney General Peter Nickles to the list. I can't want to see this man terminated. He's alleged to work only for Mayor Fenty and not for the residents of the District of Columbia.

  • Adams Morgan

    I can't wait to see Peter Nickles leave and go back to Virginia. Hopefully, he will retire for practicing Law in the District of Columbia. Nickles should be the first person Mayor elect Gray should get rid of.

  • Truth Hurts

    @ Adams Morgan: Don't know where you've been or what you read (apparently nothing involving news reports), but Nickles already resigned. Unsure what he announced as his last day, but it's definitely before Gray becomes mayor.
