  •  I really liked Jimmy Oddo's response. (4+ / 0-)

    Keep in mind he is a friend and supporter.  Courtesy of Colin Campbell who always digs up good things.

    Not anyone is taken aback by Ms. Quinn’s temperament, however. Minority Leader Jimmy Oddo–an ally of Ms. Quinn’s with a famous yelling incident himself–tweeted “Waaaaaa, the Speaker yelled at me (sniffle, sniffle)….waaaaaa…and she said a bad word too….waaaaaa.”

    The article more than anything showed one sad fact of New York City politics since the Supreme Court knocked down the Board of Estimates and the position of City Council Speaker was born.   The price for becoming New York City Council Speaker is your soul.

    The lady was enchanted and said they ought to see. So they charged her with subversion and made her watch TV -Spirogyra

      I can't imagine it's easy to be speaker of such a diverse body without a lot of bare knuckles.

      Interestingly, Quinn seems quite friendly in public based on press reports.
