For all you haters who don't understand why I, or anyone, would follow partisan politics so closely: This is why. Decrepit Maryland Comptroller William Donald Schaefer, a former Baltimore Mayor and MD Governor who refused to retire at age 84, was demolished in Tuesday's primary election. His long, sexist battle against rival candidate Janet Owens—whom he called "fat" and compared to "Mother Hubbard"—led to a victory by long-shot candidate Peter Franchot. Schaefer commemorated the event with a press conference that reads like a cross between a David Mamet play and Dutch Schultz's famous last words.
Q: What are you doing next?
Schaefer: Well, I thought I'd go to lunch. I'm gonna have a baloney sandwich.
Q: Is this the end of your political career?
Schaefer: Are you gonna raise age again? Are you raising age again?
Q: No, no.
Schaefer: Yes, you did. You raised the question of age. I've had that dirty fight all through my life. I was either too young or now I'm too old.
Q: Do you think you'll run for public office again?
Schaefer: Wuh, wuh, wuh.
