    LOL!

    Imagine that? Catania, Mayor? No way, no how... get real!!

    "Mayor McSassy" will not happen in DC. BTW, what is so intelligent about Catania. Wake up folks, just because he reads a little more than the other council members does not make him intelligent, he is just not as lazy as the self-proclaimed "hard-working" council members.

    At this point, the whole council might as well run for mayor. This is straight comedy. Jack Evans said it best......"this is the worst council, ever"!....... now almost a quarter of the "worst council ever" is running for mayor.

    Only in DC... the last colony... where bamas that are sassy get called intelligent and are perceived as "hard working" because he has a "setup" legal bribe of a job with MC Dean. Oh, yeah he left MC Dean last year after they got their city contracts increased to 8 figures. Check it!! I'm sure his "bonus" was "chubby" as a Holiday goose.

    NO to Mayor McSassy..... the meanest and nastiest pol in DC
