You can cry me a river, cry me a river….

Mike Lupica, clownalist extraordinaire who writes for the Daily News, recently interviewed New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly. The article Lupica produced from his talk with Kelly led with this choice passage:

Somehow they keep coming at Ray Kelly, from Jersey and the media and the City Council, as if Kelly is the bad guy here, as if Ray Kelly, of all people, is some kind of threat to his city. It is amazingly dumb, and on Sunday Kelly was asked why he thinks he takes as much fire as he does lately.

“Maybe,” Kelly said, “they’re not comfortable with success.”

Yes, success is the proper word to use if one defines success as the NYPD acting with distinction as Wall Street’s political enforcer, as the tormentor of brown people, as the killer of innocent civilians, as the suppressor of free speech and free assemblies, as the avoider of accountability for its crimes, etc.

Kelly on his critics: “Sometimes it sounds sometimes like people are more comfortable stereotyping me.”

Really? Is that all ya got, Ray?

Why do tough guys like Kelly whine so often and loudly?
