Who will loan Kwame Kilpatrick money now, DeDan Milton won’t snitch, and Charlie Beckham is a convicted felon and lawfully employed


Your move, Karmanos
Last year, February 11, to be exact, Peter Karmanos hired convicted felon Kwame Kilpatrick. At the time he said Kilpatrick would have no margin of error. Kilpatrick performs like everyone else, keeps his nose clean, etc or he’s out. Here we are some 344 days later and a judge just called Karmanos’ all’s boy a lying sack of shit. In court. That doesn’t happen to people who keep their nose clean and stick to business. So what of it Pete? Is your word worth a good God damn or are you a liar like your famous employee? (Freep)

UPDATE:Crain’s Tom Henderson breaks down the Karmanos-Kilpatrick bromance. Apparently, Petey doesn’t think a judge ruling that his convicted felon employee is a liar constitutes the proverbial other shoe. (Crains)

DeDan Milton, Team Kilpatrick cabana boy
Milton had a busy day. In addition to federal charges coming down the pipe, Milton chauffeured his former boss to and from court. It’s like those exiled Third World dictators who sit around Brazil (or wherever) with their sycophants pretending they all still have title and authority. DeDan probably called Kwame boss and everything. And as with any delusional regime, DeDan Milton isn’t squealing on the boss. When Team Kilpatrick returns to power, DeDan Milton’s loyalty will be totally rewarded. That’s the theory, anyway.(DetNews)

Local German-American Bund protects William Davidson’s estate
Oh those greedy Jews. They just can’t get enough money. See before he died, Bill Davidson promised this Jewish non-profit a lot of money. Then he died. You’d think that’d end things but this reputable charitable organization wants the estate to make good on the late Bill Davidson’s pledge. You know, so they can continue their good works. Fortunately the members of the American Nazi Party posting on WDIV’s website will have none of it. (WDIV)

Charlie Beckham beats Agnes Hitchcock

This is a little like that Cowboys-Brett Farve Vikings game last weekend. Fun to watch but you don’t really want either side to win. Well, Beckham won in court because, according to the judge, Beckham isn’t precluded from holding his job because he’s a felon. Fair enough but it begs the question…why the hell is a convicted grafter like Charlie Beckham allowed to serve in government? There are plenty of shoe stores where ethically challenged douchebags like Beckham can work. Just ask the late Chief Hart. Starbucks also. Charlie Beckham could totally work at Starbucks. (DetNews)

The Forgotten English 2010 desk calendar defines “coach-fellow” as a horse employed to draw in the same carriage with another. Used as a metaphor, it’s a somewhat pejorative term for someone whose lot is forever tied with that of someone else, usually in low life. See also Milton, DeDan. See also Stamper, Dan.

As for where KK can get his loans…how about a smartArm from Dan Gilbert? It’s time to live? It’s time to PAY UP, BITCH!!!


Love the term “coach-fellow,” DF, think it is particularly apropos here.

Funny comment about Quicken, too, I almost spewed my beverage all over my laptop. I was thinking the same thing–maybe the Kwame could mortgage his worthless ass? And Carlita’s too? That’s a lot of real estate there…

Judge Groner is my new hero. I didn’t think this would ever happen, so my hat is off to him.


Most of our Starbucks closed and they are Tim Horton’s now.


They have Starbucks in Dallas don’t they? I don’t actually want that collection of skank to return to Detroit. The Kilpatricks are like a disgusting ex-spouse. You don’t want to see them, hear from them, or have to acknowledge their existence. But that fucking check had better arrive on time every God damn month.


Personally, I can’t believe the Carlysle Group/Synagro hasn’t hired him yet to do sales.


Lookin’ like a playa don’t make you one.

“As the world turns, I spread like germs
Bless the globe with the pestilence, the hard-headed never learn
It’s my testament to those burned
Play my position in the game of life, standing firm
on foreign land, jump the gun out the frying pan, into the fire
Transform into the Ghostrider, or Six Pack
In A Streetcar Named Desire, who got my back?
In the line of fire holding back, what?
My peoples if you with me where the fuck you at?
Niggaz is strapped, and they trying to twist my beer cap
It’s court adjourned, for the bad seed from bad sperm
Herb got my wig fried like a bad perm, what the blood
clot, we smoke pot, and blow spots
You wanna think twice, I think not
The Iron Lung ain’t got ta tell you where it’s coming from
Guns of Navarone, tearing up your battle zone
Rip through your slums.”
— Method Man
