East Cleveland native Jimi Izrael weighs in on Mayor Eric Brewer:
Although it looked from the curb alot like the Joker being elected mayor of Gotham City, it made sense to me that he would eventually win the mayoral seat. When I got word of it, I made the mistake of calling his City Hall office to congratulate him and asking for him by his first name. I was put on hold.
Eric: "His Honor, The Mayor, muthaf*cka!!"
Me: "Uh.... hello?"
Eric: "When you call my office, you address me by my proper title, muthaf*cka: 'His Honor, The Mayor!!"
This is why he will ultimately be swept back into office for a second term.
UPDATE: Brewer lost.
