In what can only be described as a politically amateurish play, Ballard's highly excitable campaign virgins send out an email before the vote. An obvious a case of premature e-clickulation. Listen up fellas the next time you're planning your next campaign email blitz get the timing down, better yet...think baseball, baseball, baseball....Unfortunately because you lads couldn't control yourselves you've now made a political stain on your boss's biggest policy accomplishment to date.
So who's to blame? Obviously the bucks finally stops at the mayor, however since it is common knowledge that he has absolutely no political savvy we had to do a little research and according to sources all signs point to the Deputy Chief of Staff and Communications Director Robert Vane (RVAN) the young guy in the middle. You might remember him from his playful spats with Jen Wagner of Accidental Mayor fame who gushed every time he looked her way.
Well sorry to disappoint you Mr. Vane but over here a pretty face is temporary, a stupid decision lasts a lifetime. We suggest that you run over there and get your boys back on track quick, otherwise in 2011 your Democratic opponents are gonna' have you guys in the fetal position talking to yourselves. Finally, Robert the next time you are able to secure bi-partisan support (if there is a next time) act like you've had it before not like some teenager on his first date.
As for the three Democrats who are fuming that their article was used in the email? Sorry, you guys wrote it, it was published and it's now public record and legitimate fodder for you to run on or someone to run with. Get over it.
