"Cuckoo." That's how Chicago Mayor Richard Daley describes Governor Rod Blagojevich's recent comments regarding the CTA budget crisis. "I'm not going to get into an argument. He's arguing with everyone in America, so I'm not getting into that. You cannot give people free passes...someone has to pay for it," Daley said.

Last week, Governor Blagojevich claimed Daley and CTA Chief Ron Huberman were scaring the legislature regarding CTA funding and setting the stage for a fare hike.

Daley made his comments Monday while talking to educators at Ella Flagg Young Elementary.
