Bill Foster: in his own scary words

in The Bay and the 'Burg by

Before The Ducks flew to Tallahassee for the legislative season, they posted a clip from Bill Foster’s announcement speech. It’s frightening to watch. Just listen to the section of his speech when Foster says: “…no one else running for mayor will be able to steer us through the upcoming Ages of Reformation and Enlightenment…”

And his critics were worried that Foster would overplay the religious card in his campaign??? I guess this latest line is not as bad as blaming Darwin for the rise of Hitler or saying you want to be the first black mayor of St. Pete, but it’s right up there with those previous gems.

What’s next, Bill?
