A Democrat of a Different Stripe

I'm talking about Kwame Kilpatrick, one of Time Magazine's "worst mayors," who has decided to do something I consider very smart: privatize Detroit's government services.

He must not have gotten the Democratic Party talking points. Even though he was allegedly involved in the leasing of a Lincoln Navigator for his wife out of city funds, he seems to have aimed right at the budget problems and struck a bull's eye.

For example, he has eliminated 5,500 government jobs and cut property taxes. If you don't believe me, read this article by Josh Hendrickson at Tech Central Station. Let's hope that he's caught a very contagious virus and that the Democrats will catch it before they take over our federal and state legislatures this Fall.
