What on earth could possibly make Glenn say he would consider voting for a liberal?
The Democratic mayor of Philadelphia, Michael Nutter, has come out with some harsh criticism for the rioters that have infiltrated his city, and Mayor Nutter’s reaction caught Glenn’s attention.
They played the Mayor’s remarks on radio this morning:
"Take those doggone hoodies down, especially in the summer. Pull your pants up and buy a belt, because no one wants to see your underwear or the crack of your butt. Nobody. You walk in somebody's office with your hair uncombed and the pick in the back and your shoes untied and your pants half down, tattoos up and down your arms, on your face, on your neck, and you wonder why somebody won't hire you? They don't hire you because you look like you're crazy,” Nutter said.
Though Glenn admitted that he doesn’t “know anything about this guy,” he does appreciate the Mayor’s candor. “If he's sincere about what he's saying here on the pulpit, if he's sincere about that, he might get my vote in Philadelphia, if I were living in Philadelphia,” Glenn said.
The truthfulness of these comments sparked a conversation among Glenn, Pat, and Stu.
“You know, how true is that? You're wondering why you're not getting hired, after all he described. I wouldn't describe anybody who had their shoes untied,” Pat said. “I don't care what color they are. They could be blue; it doesn't matter. When you're dressed like that, look like that you're not getting a job.”
“I have to tell you, I know people who have -- they're all tattooed up, they're all tattooed up they're really nice people and everything else. But I'm sorry, call me old fashioned, but that scares the crap out of me,” Glenn said.
“I'm sorry, but I don't feel comfortable doing business with you, you know, on my 401k,” he continued.
Though Stu did seek to defend the baggy short-wearing tattooed job seekers by suggesting they would be excellent candidates for a job a rock star or tattoo artist. He did concede, “There's a certain decor of what you do in a business environment.”
Glenn agreed, but ultimately, when applying for a “regular job,” as the Mayor seems to be insinuating, you have to be cognoscente of your appearance.
“If you're going -- and his [Mayor Nutter’s] point is you wonder why you're not getting hired, if your shoes are untied, your pants are hanging down, you're riddled with tattoos, you're not going to get hired,” Glenn concluded.
