5 things I think about today’s St. Petersburg Times (6/15)

in Peter/The Bay and the 'Burg by

It’s not the St. Petersburg Times that is drawing my attention today, but its sister publication, the TBT, which ran this cover for today’s edition: Unless my eyes are mistaking me, that ain’t Carole Crist in the picture.  Actually, Carole Crist’s ass looks better than this woman’s, so Charlie put your eyes back in your sockets. Howard Troxler addresses just this kind of posturing by politicians.  Not the kind of posturing that has a pol staring at some chick’s t-back,…

in Peter by

Is anyone else beginning to think that local Democratic political consultant Mitch Kates is, to put it succinctly, losing his shit? The Bay Buzz writes today about a letter Kates wrote to Eric Forcade, a very minor Tea Party candidate who dropped out of the race to challenge incumbent Congressman Bill Young: “…calling him ‘a coward, hypocrite and referring to Forcade, a Pinellas sheriff’s officer, as “you and your crazy 9-12ers” and “nut-ball demigod hero Glenn Beck.” Okay, so maybe Kates is…

in Peter/The Bay and the 'Burg by

Today’s city commissioner is tomorrow’s state legislator. And today’s state legislator is tomorrow’s congressional candidate. Or so I’ve always thought and that’s why I always pay attention to the results of even the smallest town’s municipal elections. Yesterday’s slate of elections in Pinellas County certainly provided a list of winners and losers and I’m not just talking about the candidates.

Bill Foster’s blunders in the black community continue as campaign hires former Cappelli, Gibbons aide Nick Hansen to run black GOTV

in Peter/The Bay and the 'Burg by

It is probably the shortest post ever written on the St. Petersburg Times’ Bay Buzz: “Bill Foster opens a campaign office in Midtown”. It’s located in the shopping center at 2261 34th Street S. This news comes on the heels of several miscues by Bill Foster’s campaign in its outreach to the African-American community, such as the recent incident in which Foster “hurt some people’s feeling when he turned down an offer last week to take a photo with Davis,…
