Yes, you read that right. Shortshanks refused to apologize:
- The words were right there in his script. Words that a lot of you wanted to hear Tuesday night about Chicago's parking meter mess. But Mayor Daley skipped over them. [...]
We are often called on to translate "Daley-speak" and expected to report what he meant to say, rather than what he actually said.
Tonight, we knew what he meant to say, we were given his prepared remarks. But when the time came to say, 'We screwed up', the words never passed his lips.
Hubris, thy name is Daley. This guy can't even follow a prepared script that would have generated a modicum of good will in the tiniest of tiny-brained voters. We have a feeling he's going to announce shortly that he isn't seeking re-election, so he figures why bother saying something we all know he never meant anyway.
