Michael Sneed from today’s Chicago Sun-Times has given me a new nickname – “Gatling Gums” William J. Kelly. A gatling gun, for you non-gun enthusiasts, is one of the best known early rapid-fire weapons and forerunner of the modern machine gun. Hmmm….How ’bout “Machine Gums” Kelly?
A Facebook Friend, Ian Hayne, gave me this little tidbit about the Gatling. ” By the way, the Gatling might have been the precursor to the machine gun, but refined to its present state-of-the-art, it is a formidable thing … e.g. the M61 20mm in so many deployments, and the GAU-8 30 mm in the A-10 Warthog … it’s a great compliment Mr “Gatling Gums” Kelly, so wear it with pride :):)
Read her item about me and my event with FOX’s Dick Morris here:
Remember “Gatling gums” William J. Kelly, the radio guy who accused Channel 2 newsman Jay Levine, a tough pro, of threatening to deck him during a press gathering? (Levine, of course, was found not guilty.)
◆To wit: Kelly is not only running for 42nd ward Republican, but he’s enlisted the help of Dick Morris, Fox News contributor/former Clinton White House advisor, who is scheduled to attend his fundraiser/46th birthday party at the Signature Room in the John Hancock building.
