Our blog post yesterday on all the many cliches national writers often employ to generalize about Seattle -- and even its "jowly and bearded 52-year-old mayor" Mike McGinn -- knows no bounds. Our Commenter of the Day, though thinks McGinn himself used the real cliche, which comes toward the end of the Wall Street Journal article that we poked a little fun at.
This is our Comment of the Day, from FrequentPoster:
The best cliche was at the end.
"You know, I don't know if I should say this on the record, but they're underestimating me. I think I've got them right where I want them."
Oh McGinn. You have slip'd the surly bonds of earth and touched the face of God!
