Grumpy Old Vince

Is Vince Fumo the gift that keeps giving?

Though he's a half year away from State Senate retirement, Fumo is still firing, and not simply in his Green Street mansion firing range.

As the Inquirer's Mario Cattabiani reports today, Fumo believes that "If we introduced a bill on slavery, it might pass."

When Gilbert Coleman, Jr., senior pastor of Philadelphia's Freedom Christian Bible Fellowship said "I doubt that, sir." 

Fumo shot right back. "Oh, don't bet on it in this General Assembly," the Philadelphia Democrat said. "I know some people up here, especially on a secret ballot, it would be almost unanimous."

Do you think Fumo's jealous of all the attention Jeremiah Wright's mustered this week?

Are we going to miss this guy when he's gone?

What, in the world, will he do next - that is, besides his September trial and 139 federal counts of corruption?
