Matthew Petty: The taste of crow - it does a body good

Posted By on Tue, Nov 25, 2008 at 11:12 PM

I know one thing for sure - young Matthew Petty needs to be getting on YouTube tonight, promising support to the new mayor. I look forward to seeing that video, especially after reading pearls of wisdom like this on his website:

New Council Would Work Best with Mayor Coody  -

The taste of crow - it does a body good.

I have never seen any newly elected official shoot themselves in the foot  - actually, both feet - as well as young Petty has in the past few weeks - and he hasn't even taken office yet.

There is no joy in Mudville: the Mighty Coody has struck out

Just thought I’d get there before anybody else did.

Oh! somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright;
The band is playing somewhere and somewhere hearts are light,
And somewhere men are laughing and somewhere children shout;
But there is no joy in Mudville -- mighty Coody has struck out.

What’s Adella Gray gonna do now?

Well, maybe Dan can call or email her every so often and “suggest” how she should vote on issues, since he won’t be there to directly influence her any more. This is going to be tough!

    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.
