I couldn’t help, but notice this … exchange:
Maybe, it stuck out, as more prominent to me, because:
- I heard Dick Howe, on City Life, last week, diss the Democratic City Committee, while sitting next to Marie Sweeney.
- I have my own bone to pick with them and their do little, other than operate a ‘conserva-Dem’ incumbent protection program, approach to organizing local Dems.
I should back up. The screen grab begins with a commenter, Arthur. That is Arthur Sullivan. The subject is the process of how the CM came to select a Democrat (and also a blogger) for appointment to the Election Commission. To further clarify, Sullivan is joined at the hip with C.Kennedy.
Why do I mention that?
City Councilor Ed Kennedy said he plans to vote against Lynch’s proposed appointment and was shocked to see Lynch select Nutter because of the type of criticism he has levied against councilors and other public officials.
“I think that the people who serve on the Election Commission should be neutral or have the appearance of being neutral to those seeking public office,” Kennedy said. “This person has bashed both members of the City Council and the School Committee on his blog.”
So, it isn’t much of a stretch to imagine, come Tuesday’s City Council meeting, that Councilor Ditto will parrot Arthur Sullivan’s hand wringing over the process employed by the CM. I’m really NOT jumping to conclusions here. Do you remember the faux outrage conjured by George Zaharoolis over the grid coordinates of Lowell’s Pericles? Likely, ‘The Bear’ will let Kennedy borrow the template, just substitute prominent Greeks with Democratic City Committee. Y’know. Boo Birds of a feather … and so on
