Daley Calls Blago Cuckoo, Gov Fires Back

"Mayor Daley made it dramatically clear Monday what he thinks of recent accusations from Gov. Blagojevich that the city is to blame for a potential CTA fare hike," the Sun-Times reports.

"'Cuckoo,' Daley said in a high-pitched voice."

The governor fired back later in the afternoon.

"I don't think I'm cuckoo, but I will tell you what drives me crazy," Blagojevich said after attending a school-funding meeting with Meeks and several ministers at a South Side church. "And what drives me crazy is the CTA blaming years of mismanagement on senior citizens taking the bus for free."
