Long Live Our Dear Leader

Cliff Lyon has published the official House campaign thank you note. Particularly moving was the final paragraph: "And last but not least, Mayor Rocky Anderson who stands alone in our political landscape - a beacon of light whose impact on this capitol city, deep in the mountain west, extends across the national progressive movement." In an email version sent out to supporters, Mayor Anderson received an upgrade in status from "last but not least" to "most importantly" and the paragraph received some great flavor: "And most importantly, Mayor Rocky Anderson who stands alone in our political community, a willing target of a shameless media and weak-kneed pundits who pile on the bandwagon of lazy loud mouths whose self-serving and hollow criticisms are as void of substance as they are convenient. Rocky is a beacon of light whose impact on this capitol city deep in the mountain west extends across the national progressive movement."

I agree with Ethan... Rocky is good for this community. Can you imagine if the GOP controlled everything... we don't need another politburo.

And people forget that outside of Utah, Rocky looks like the only sane politician in the State.

Makes me laugh when Utahns vote for Orrin Hatch because of the "prestige" factor.

It is all too disconcerning when anyone holds a politician to such high esteem. Cliff Lyon you scare me. More importantly, did anyone else notice that he barely even mention Janneke in his thank you note? Kudos to Janneke. She is a wonderful woman with great potential and ideas. I will look forward to seeing where she makes a difference in the future. May I just advise her to not let Cliff Lyon be apart of it.

Shawn, who do you know? Everyone I know outside of this state thinks he is a huge joke. You have been here too long. You are beginning to believe the local propaganda that "everyone else, everywhere else does it different, and better."

Why is Cliff writing the thank you note? Where is Janneke? ooops another indication of the insincerity of this whole campaign.

To be fair, Janneke House also wrote a thank you note for the website immediately following the election.

But I think you're overall point is well taken. Cliff's did seem to be the "official" thank you note.

Quite a few people associated with the campaign were also a bit upset with the final paragraph of that letter. Most of us really like Rocky but feel that the emphasis should have been on Janneke and her outstanding performance or maybe something about her future potential.

Cliff, your nose is so far up Rocky's ass that the term "BROWN NOSE" now has new meaning.

Just so that anon above knows, I am a democrat. I have worked with the state party for years. I did not like what Cliff did with this campaign. It was an embarrassment.

The whole House campaign was so that Cliff could get under some Republican's skin? This was the "mission". Did anyone tell Janneke that? Actually, I don't think he got under anyone's skin, except maybe Democrats who expect more from their party than this.

Republican elect democrats. If our goal is to get under their skin than we may as well shoot our husbands and mate with our bishops.

Comon, we need to be smarter than that Clifford.
