Fischer has bell rung after media stunt

George W. Bush Greg Fischer, Louisville's mayor-elect, took a turn as a "bell ringer" for the Salvation Army yesterday at the Highlands Kroger. The event lasted all of 30 minutes and was set to coincide with the noon news programs on a traditionally slow news day. It appeared to be less of an attempt to help out than it was a chance to get on television. [Fox41]

I don't know about you, but I think if this guy really wanted to help, he'd just write a gigantic check from his entrepreneur bank account instead of staging a failed, half-hour photo opportunity.

Fischer states his Christmas plans include a huge celebration at home "with his entire family".

True leaders "lead by example". That means showing up unannounced to a soup kitchen or shelter on Christmas, not by displacing petty criminals on community service detail.

The more we see of Fischer, the more we have to fear. Who convinced him this was a good idea?

    DEAR EDITOR,

    THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO TRUTH TO THE RUMOR THAT
    MARION BERRY, JUDY, alias (JUDITH,JUDEA,
    JUNEBUG,JUNNIE)GREEN, AND TEDD COLLINS ARE
    FORMING A LAW FIRM TITLED DEWEYCHEATEM&HOWELL.
    IN FACT, I WILL GIVE A TESTIMONIAL TO THEIR
    QUALITY OF CHARACTER.

    REGARDS,
    HONORABLE CHARLES RANGEL
