Parting Shots; Dust up at the Inn and playing Footsie at the Council.
Well now that the dust has settled after the massive defeat of the DFC gang on Tuesday I will make a few observations. I found the City Council meeting Wednesday to be a marvelous display of mixed human emotions. Ivins was tired and looked a little hung over; clearly he had been celebrating his come from behind win the night before. Johnson was as always impeccably dressed and had a relaxed swagger and appeared ready to take on the difficult challenges that lie ahead. Kim was restrained and a little subdued, which was a first for him at the City Council table. Skippy was almost gleeful playing footsie with his buddy Ron while he laughed and joked with the somber Kim. One can only wonder who Skippy will turn to after the next three council meetings when Kim will no longer be there to help him turn on his laptop. Only a man with no honour and principles can campaign with Kim on a corner of Broadway one minute than slap Johnson on the back the next.
Second the dust up at the Inn at Saratoga.
Seems that after the losers make their self loathing concession speeches and Yepsen took the microphone the embittered remnant of the DFC in unison turned their back on the popular Yepsen and left the building. What happened next is still up for debate? Someone confronted the angry Kim who was accompanied by disgraced ex mayor, life coach and hot babe of the month on MATCH.COM Val Keehn about there rude behavior. A heated augment ensured and according to some observers briefly became physical. Anyone with further info is encouraged to contact this blog and unlike the Saratogian confidentiality is ensured.
