What Have We Wrought (Installment #2)? The A-Hole Ringtone Goes Statewide

a333/1247712281-shocking_phone_call.jpgWell, who'd 'a thunk it? Yes, yes, of course, we knew — as soon as Mayor Willie Herenton said it — that his terse and profane description of opponent Steve Cohen would be the sound-bite that would go around the world. "Figuratively," that is. We didn't anticipate "literally."

But that's what happening, thanks to blogger Wintermute of The Daily Docket, who (with our permission) listed our own posting of the mayor's actual words and offered them out (now, this was a surprise) as a ringtone for downloading. Among the readers who picked up on the offer was our bud Jeff Woods of the Nashville Scene's Pith in the Wind blog.

So the ringtone has gone as far as Nashville. Listen up, D.C.! Listen up, world!
