Is it too early for a Mike Germain quote of the year?

While last year’s quote of the year was definitely great, last night brought the first MG-quote-of-2011 nomination:

 “Conspiracy number 3: Germain was the guy on the grassy knoll.” (1:05:35ish mark)

At that point, I think MG was talking about all sort of conspiracies [from talk radio, the ‘net, etc.] about how he hated the police and/or had a hit out on the city manager. 

If you don’t think that quote makes any sense, even in that context, I think it helps to view Mike Germain, City Councilor less as a representative of Worcester citizens and more as a performance artist.  Try that the next time you watch a Council meeting.  He’ll make more sense that way.

Also, I cannot have been the only one to hear his reference to “The Raphael in Kansas City” and think, “MG, if I’d known your interest in TMNT and/or Renaissance art, we could have had a Framed-watching party last week!”  And then google “raphael kansas city” because you wanted to know which Raphael was owned by a KC museum, and then figure out that he’s talking about a hotel.

    I liked the tax vote quote:
    “I’m always the guy who comes in sixth place. This is political suicide for me. Which means next year I’m coming in seventh”

    Anybody know the status of Telegram City Hall reporter Nick Kotsopoulos? The Telegram took down the link to City Hall Notebook also.
