The [Wednesday] Papers

Yes, I have something to say about the McCain ad that has the mayor so upset. I just haven't had time to put it together yet. Maybe later today on Division Street.

*

Or maybe it's just that I have other things on my mind.

-

By the way, the Metrodome really is awful. There is this weird wind-tunnel effect when you walk out the doors.

-

Daley's Dry Dock
Um, this is stupid. Let us count the ways.

1. "You can drink as much beer for seven innings as you want."

Um, okay. So we're through six innings and we've only got one more drinking inning left? Let's pound it, boys!

2. "It's not going to cost them any business."

Not if their customers are pounding it in the seventh!

3. "They made enough money all year, I'm sorry."

What, the mayor is running for Treasury Secretary now?

4. "If you've been drinking for five hours and you're laying on the floor, don't give that person another beer."

Or after seven innings, whichever comes first.

Olympic Pile
Now that the mayor's latest idea for an Olympic Village has fallen apart, an anonymous mayoral aide tells Fran Spielman that "Our original plan made a lot of sense."

In fact, City Hall is glad their latest idea didn't work out! What were we thinking!

Motive Voting
"The Blagojevich-friendly Illinois Senate handed the governor a small victory Tuesday, passing an ethics package that he wrote that now faces likely death in the House," the Sun-Times reports.

You know what? The House should pass it just out of spite.

Pound Foolish
"Lincoln Penny Getting New Look."

Will now feature Obama on one side.

Urgent Matter
This piece of brilliance has been going around.

Bruce Ruse
Evolution of a Springsteen rumor.

Plus, Thornton had Lou make up a sign and stand outside his limo.

Rich Pots & Kettles
John Kerry is the richest member of Congress, Roll Call reports. The Obama campaign called Kerry out of touch and released an ad about how many cars he owns.

Tribsome Twosome
Here's the Chicago Tonight interview of Gerry Kern and Jane Hirt.

CTA WTF
"CTA President Ron Huberman said that despite the threat of a slight fare increase in 2009, the CTA finds itself in the best fiscal position in a decade," CTA Tattler reports.

*

Doomsday.

Oz Fest
"White Sox Take Extra Day Off Before Key Twins Series."

*

If Eddie Vedder channeled Lee Elia.

The Beachwood Tip Line: Bleepin' awesome.
