Happy birthday Iceman

There is not much good that I have to say about the Cook County Board but I will state that one of it's members is one of the world's greatest singers. Scott Johnson of Powerline wrote a great post on Jerry "the Iceman" Butler's 69th Birthday. Happy Birthday Iceman.

Butler, who legally changed his name to reflect "the Iceman" on political ballots has been a member of the Cook County Board since 1985 and as his Wikipedia entry notes, he voted for the notorious Cook County sales tax increase legislation of 2008.

The Powerline post includes a great video of Only the Strong Survive.
