Progressive Redefined

Some of you may remember how often Cliff Lyon mentioned the word "progressive". That term was thrown around indiscriminately and used to describe his favorite people and things. A few of his progressive champions were: Dave Bailey- candidate for Provo mayor: Cliff Lyon identified him as the vanguard of the new movement of progressive Mormon Democrats. Dave Bailey, however, repeatedly insisted he was a conservative Republican. Southwest Carpenters Union: Cliff Lyon identified this union as the future of the progressive movement. This union endorsed President George W. Bush and nationally is in third place among unions for amount of money donated to Republicans. So what brought on this radical redefinition of 'progressive'? I think it's less a re- definition and more a mis- defenition. Perhaps it has something to do with Craig Axford, co- chair of the Utah Democratic Progressive Caucus and current Utah Democratic Party staffer who Cliff Lyon has been trying to get fired. A ham handed attempt to out progressive a progressive.

Cliff Lyon is after every republican and DEMOCRAT who doesn't support his views and the views of those around him.

Cliff Lyon and his cronies continue to lose battles and elections and will say whatever they need to in order to hurt others.

Ah, Cliff is an asshat that no one likes, but, he's dating Rocky, or something, has some money, and makes a screaming ass out of himself whenever he opens his mouth.

The real danger is that Cliff surrounds himself with the same kind of monied, power hungry ditto-droids that are bent on crushing anything that they can't control.

So, in the grand sceam of things, Cliff is a non factor state wide, but, having no shame, he does a lot, with the Jan, Dow, Alcott gang to Fark up anything he can for other Democrats. Like Janekkeem for example.

My my you guys have been busy...or bored. I am honored by the attention.

Ethan, why on earth would you suggest I'm trying to get Craig fired? Craig Axford is a great, man and has worked very hard for political balance in the state. I don't know him well, but I've seen what he has done, and how hard he works, and my respect for him only grows.

Peace - Cliff
