What if this statement had been released?
(a revised and intentionally satirical version of the statement released by Hamilton’s Mayor on December 9, 2011)

On December 1, 2010, in an interview I made comments regarding the job of Mayor that left the impression that I was capable of doing the job. This was not the case, as I noted in the clarification I issued when I realized the impression that had been created by my remarks. I regret any negative inference that may have been created. The issue of competence for this office is, of course, my responsibility as mayor. While I did seek comparative historical information about other mayors, and while I acted on the basis of that information, it was not my intention to suggest that the final responsibility for competence was anyone's other than my own. It is time to put this unfortunate distraction behind us, and hopefully we can get back to tackling the many important issues and exciting opportunities that we will face as a council in the coming year. I’m sure I will do other things in the coming months and years to ensure there are more unfortunate distractions that will keep Councillors busy.
