    Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino repeated today that he doesn’t want Chick-fil-A in Boston, but he backed away from a threat to actively block the fast-food chain from setting up shop in the city.

    “I can’t do that. That would be interference to his rights to go there,” Menino said, referring to company president Dan Cathy, who drew the mayor’s wrath by going public with his views against same-sex marriage.


    The mayor added: “I make mistakes all the time. That’s a Menino-ism.”

    Menino says he can’t actively block Chick-fil-A - BostonHerald.com

    the only bigger asshats in boston are the ones that keep reelecting this buffoon.

    he's like an alcatraz around their necks.

    Id consider this a win over an politician who lets his head get to big.

    He could in no way stop Chick-Fil-A from opening.

    Seems tax receipts trump pious posturing.

    Shocking!

    more likely he pulled his fat head out of his ass long enough for the city's lawyers to explain the 14th amendment to him using very small words and pictures. :lol:

    if you've ever wondered what happened to the original bozo, he's alive and well and mayor of boston
