Jindal picks wrong fight edition

  "Come and get me." — Somerville, Massachusetts Mayor Joe Curtatone, responding to Gov. Bobby Jindal's suggestion that elected officials in so-called "sanctuary cities" be held criminally liable for crimes committed by people in the country illegally. Curtatone put Jindal on blast, comparing him to hapless TV characters Gomer Pyle and Barney Fife; saying, "Bobby Jindal must be proud to use a wedge issue to propel himself all the way into the single digits"; and "We shouldn't lower ourselves to the lowest common denominator, and that's the brain of ... Bobby Jindal."

  Curtatone finished by comparing his town's murder rate this year (zero) to that of Louisiana, and concluded by inviting Jindal "to come up here and debate the issue. But need to check bylaws on dishing out a public spanking."
