Hard on the heels of yesterdays Supreme Court ruling in McDonald v. Chicago that the Second Amendment to the US Constitution protects an individual right to bear arms for self-defense and that the right thus protected is incorporated against state and local governments, Chicago Mayor Daley expressed his contempt for both the Court and the citizens whose rights he has trampled.

The Mayor should take note of the fact that Arthur Bremer shot George Wallace in the parking lot ~ a particularly gruesome place to be hurt let me tell you. And, to top it off, Arthur Bremer has been released from prison and is wandering about.
Does he know where Chicago is? Do they have parking lots there?
While more people remember George Wallace, equal credit should go to Arkansas governor Orville Faubus, who sent in the Arkansas National Guard to support the segregationists keeping black students out of Little Rock Central High School.
But president Eisenhower then sent in the 101st Airborne Division to say otherwise. Faubus folded. Though he later mentored Bill Clinton.
So which one, Wallace or Faubus, is Daley most like?
Who cares, as long as the comparison is made.
