Is Mayor Daley A Tool?

Here are the first few paragraphs from the Sun Times article yesturday.

Bars and restaurants around Wrigley Field that ignore the city’s call to voluntarily cut off liquor sales after the seventh inning could face a dire alternative: Area residents could vote them dry, Mayor Daley warned Tuesday.

One day after bar owners reacted angrily to the city’s proposal, Daley defended it as "common sense." He argued that Cubs fans who’ve been drinking up until the seventh-inning stretch of potential title-clinching games need, what he called, "some smoothing time" before the celebration begins in earnest.

"This is about the Cubs. This is about where they worked so hard all year to get to. This is not about a lot of fans and a lot of drinking. We don’t want to see any incident outside, because if there is, that whole area will be voted dry tomorrow. Those citizens will get together and say, ‘I’m gonna vote every precinct dry. I’ll even vote Cubs Field dry," Daley said.

First Mayor it's Wrigley Field not Cubs Field. 

Second, is this really going to help or just get people to load up on drinks before the temporary freeze on sales. 

Fianlly, doesn't this just provoke people into acting more crazy and more drunk in defiance of 'The Man'.

Get a grip Daley, we know you're a Sox fan but can you lay off the Cubs.
