Victims

I love it when politicians climb up on their crosses. From Mayor Rocky Anderson: "One must also lament that politics has reached such a low level that some have tried to score partisan political points by besmirching the extraordinary efforts and sacrifices of several people who achieved such a great feat on behalf of Salt Lake City." That's right Mayor Anderson. YOU would NEVER stoop so low as to score partisan political points by besmirching people. Come on down, Mayor Anderson, like it or not, you're the Mayor of a real city that really needs your attention.

Who has he besmirched? Is pointing out someone as a conservative Republican your definition of besmirchment? Really, I'd like to hear an example of besmirchment to the degree by which someone else (very)publicly accuses another of corruption, like Evans did. I mean the dude staged a media circus around the Torino trip and, as we discussed, people have tried to make it an issue as we witnessed in the Wikipedia article on Rocky.

So when Rocky comes out totally cleared of any wrongdoing in an incident that would not be an issue whatsoever if windbag blowhard James Evans hadn't pranced in front of every local news camera, and then comments on the sheer baselessness of which that through the county GOP's orchestration, becomes a media frenzy, that, somehow, to you, is someone climbing on their cross.

I guess if Rocky is in the right, to you, that really means he's in the wrong, somehow, someway. After all, it's Rocky Anderson, and we shouldn't let reason get in the way of our blind hatred of him.

How about "There are some on the council who would never have considered voting contrary to the Church's desire in this matter." (Oct 16 2003) .

Not terribly besmirch-y, but accusing some on the city council of bowing to the pressure of the LDS church isn't exactly genteel statesmanship either.

Is this Rocky speaking to his involvment in the recent ugliness in District 3? Besmirching-yeah Rocky has that down. He even has litle cronnies running rampant around town besmirching on his behalf. Can we all say hypocrit?

Apparently Shawn forgot what happened in District 3. Maybe he thinks because it wasn't Rockys campaing then Rocky was not besmirching anyone.

Sorry Shawn, Rocky is a hypocrite.

When is someone going to investigate this SLIMY Jimmy Evans, the GOP with the SHINY suits and really bad shoes?
