Vanity, thy name is Coody?

Well, yeah.


Vanity, thy name is Coody? - II

The mayor - who had previously announced that he would not be seeking a third term as mayor - commissioned a telephone survey about the upcoming mayoral race, that included his own name?

“I just wanted to see what my numbers were like,” he explained to the Northwest Arkansas Times, “and I was very gratified with the results.”

Is Dan Coody still fantasizing that he may have to step into the race, if only to save the voters from what he views as their making poor choices? Does he think that the voters of Fayetteville will actually be grateful to him, should he do so?


Wishful thinking?

At this point, Dan Coody is looking less like a wise leader, and more like a politician whose ego has a lot in common with Audrey II, the plant from “Little Shop of Horrors":

Feed Me!!!!!!!!”

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
