Monica Conyers Like School on Sunday -- No Class
— Ace

That diva act, Jesus. You married a hundred and forty year old corpse, parlayed that into a super-impressive gig on the Detroit city council. Get over yourself. You're a gold-digging, no-account minor governmental layabout.

And you can't even put your ego on hold long enough to just say "I did wrong" to a kid.

And so, the delightful result: A kid makes you look like an even bigger assclown than you are.

Via Hot Air.

3 Holy crap, a comment!

That class act is Sen. John Conyers wife?  Ya don't say...  I like how her response is to start pointing fingers at the kids.  That last girl was too smart to be manipulated with the we're all the same speech.

5 1) Is that Detroit News guy serious?

2) Why on earth did Conyers' aide prompt the kids to ask a question that she so didn't want to answer?

7 that young lady was very impressive.  Can't tell you how tired I am of John Conyers.  City Councils are supposed to be petty, and I guessI don't mind her calling the President of the Council Shrek so much as I mind her refusing to let anyone else speak.  I don't understand why he didn't have her removed by the Sherrif.

But Detroit is a different sort of place.  The Conyers brand is built on paranoia and hatred.  We're talking Rev. Wright levels of sickness.  They want to stay in the news by acting like this.  It's pretty sad for Detroit, but most people with any sense would have left D-town long ago.  People like this make be awfully proud to drive a Honda.

Maybe Canada wants them. I'd be willing to pay them to take it.

17 That reminds me of a Chicago style steakhouse I went to a few years ago. Their motto was "a touch of class." You know, not a lot of class or "classy" per say, but just a touch.

19 what a bitch! Those kid's ran her into the ground and she's too fucking stoopid to respond with any logic. It's all about her, her frustrations, her feelings and anyone that doesn't gratify her is a POS.  Conyers married well. A Detroit Maxine Waters, Cynthia McKinney and Barbara Lee rolled into one.

I think Detroit would do well by canning everyone on council and replacing them with that panel of little girls..

My God, if I heard right, there was a middle-school student telling a city council member, 'you're an adult, act like one'.

A small spark of hope...

This goes a long way to explaining why Detroit is fucked up beyond all repair.

30 these are tacky people In complaints made to a House Ethics Committee meeting released on March 2, 2006, three former aides who worked for Conyers were allegedly used as babysitters and valets, instead of working in his offices for governmental purposes.[9] The allegations range from babysitting, to tutoring Conyers' children, and chauferring him to private functions, as well as paying for bills at hotels and restaurants. According to a Detroit Free Press article, one aide reported that she picked Conyers' kids up from school, drove them home, helped with their homework, made dinner, and set them to bed while on the congressional salary.[10] Conyers' lawyer has stated that they have been "fully forthcoming" on the allegations in the committee report.[11]

31 Also, John had these aides work on the lovely Mz. Monica's campaigns

I'm probably going to get clobbered for saying this, but she sounds like roughly 50% of the women (white, black, brown and green) that I have the misfortune to have to see and listen to, each and every f'ing day.

You know the ones- they sit in their SUVs, running the AC, talking on the phone, idling for forty-five minutes in the parking lot, burning God knows how many gallons of gas, and then vote Democrat because they're the ENVIRONMENTAL party.

Fuck you, you stupid fucking bitches.

33 The thing about kids is that, when they aren't too intimidated to speak or goofing off and not paying attention, their primary directive for the totality of life itself is to *figure out the rules*.

Don't call names is a rule drummed into their little heads from the time they discover the word "poopy".

And trying to explain that the behavior of children is a standard for the behavior of adults "because we're all human" is just digging a hole.    The *adult* thing is to own the behavior and apologize or at least be honest and say you did it on purpose to make the other person mad.

Also interesting that the kids expected there to be repercussions.    They expected her to get in trouble with the "authority" she was mouthing off to.    That says more about a lack of understanding of authority and power relationships and more about what it's like to be a kid in school with no power at all.   I can just see those girls getting into an argument with a teacher and calling the teacher "Shrek".   

Which is *also* interesting.    Shrek?   He was kind, gentle and a good guy all around.   But he put on a gruff exterior because he was supposed to be an ogre.  What was she trying to *say*?

Speaking of abusing staff, I worked for a state senator a long time ago who had staffers write his daughter's college application essays.

Posted by: beckyj at April 30, 2008 05:55 PM (x4LR9)


Matt - #39,

Correct.  One of the latest signs of the city's collapse is the relocation of Comerica Bank from Detroit to Dallas. 

I once took a client to Cleveland to inspect a potential real estate investment.  I have never seen devastation on that scale since I drove through Dresden in Germany in 1992.  There was still rubble piled high from the WWII bombings.  I suspect that this condition will persist in cities such as Detroit, Cleveland and Philadelphia for many years to come.

This video shows why the future is more bleak than the past.

Last one to leave, please turn off the lights.

43 I must defend my hometown of Philly. I've never been to Cleveland, or Dresden, but Detroit lives up to it's billing as a bombed-out hellhole. Philly has some really crappy neighborhoods, but overall, Detroit makes Philly look like Beverly Hills.

48 They have to kids, but who knows --- Conyers could be on the down-low. Detroit suffers from 100% Democratic/racial politics. THIS is what you get. It is the perfect test-model for liberal policies.

Hear, hear!  Giving credit where credit is most certainly due.  Because, as we all know, it can't be the schools that should get the credit, especially in a city like Detroit run by the likes of Mrs. Conyers.  (I'm sure she isn't the only one of her ilk on the Council.)

Posted by: RickZ at May 01, 2008 03:56 AM (QUOWj)

51 Dallas had a Mrs. Conyers equivalent back in the 90's.  I used to listen to the city council meetings on KERA just for the sheer entertainment of having Dianne Ragsdale (aka, on-the-Ragsdale) and Al Lipscomb pulling their chicken-shit tag team act on whoever got in their way.

The bonus was that there was usually video on the evening news when I got home.

Good times.  Good times.

Ragsdale picked up the torch from Elsie Faye Higgins.


She was a real peach too.

Posted by: Dave in Texas at May 01, 2008 04:51 AM (pzen5)

53 Elsie Faye Higgins - I've heard the name, but I think she was before I got here - or at least before I became aware of the 3 ring circus that is Dallas City politics.

Oh, and I have to say that the only reason I found Al and Dianne amusing is the fact that I don't live in Dallas.  Otherwise that shit would have pissed me off.

Posted by: Charybdis E. Scylla at May 01, 2008 05:54 AM (ATBwB)

54 In a meritocracy, that stupid bitch would be scrubbing toilets instead of sitting on a city council.  What an ignorant pig.  Detroit residents who vote for these buffoons get exactly what they deserve. Maybe we could just wall the whole city off so they don't infect the rest of us.
