Cat Fight in Philadelphia City Politics! Fight! Fight! Fight!

"One of those tantrum days"? Hahahahahaahha...

In case you missed it, Gov. Rendell took a shot at City Council yesterday for being a body "with no guts" that was "extorted by Community groups," as reported in Thursday's Metro.
City Councilman Frank DiCicco, who has led the fight against the SugarHouse and Foxwoods casinos, both in his district, fought back yesterday, suggesting the Governor was having a "bad day," and accused him of pandering to his "buddies" -- the investors in the projects such as developer Ron Rubin or Comcast/Spectacor chairman Ed Snider in Foxwoods.
"To call us gutless is a disgrace," DiCicco told fellow Council members at their regular meeting Thursday, questioning whether the Governor was having one of "those tantrum days."
If that's the case, DiCicco said, "Get over it, Governor."
Rendell spokesman Chuck Ardo was game for that challenge: "The governor is passionate about the opportunity to provide thousands of jobs and millions of dollars in tax relief," Ardo said. "He will not get over that passion easily."
