2 Political Junkies blog: New CDC Virus Warning. The Center for Disease Control has issued a warning about a new virulent strain of sexually transmitted disease. This disease is contracted through dangerous and high risk behavior. The disease is called Gonorrhea lecthim (pronounced 'gonna re-elect him').
Locally, we have another problem, a new rash that is sweeping Pittsburgh this winter and spring: gonna-not-elect-em-tri-fecta. Comes from hugging and a peck on the cheek from Bob O'Connor as he tries for his third run at the mayor's race.
Cure: Long, 3 to 5 minute embraces. Bear hug him like a clam and avoid the pain of hearing him speak on the issues. If he only hugged, we'd all be safe. So, don't let go.
PG coverage of O'Connor gears up for mayoral run.
Seriously, it was good to see Bob resign from the state position as there are ethical matters to deal with if he kept campaigning while on the job there. So he did do the right thing. But to have him say he is still considering the run is outlandish.
It was interesting to see Bob O'Connor outside of Heinz Field the night of the WPIAL football games. Bob was cheering for Central Catholic. Meanwhile, deals were being cut in the final hours in the legislature for Pittsburgh's bailout. Go team go.
I love Central Catholic too. Hope they win in Altoona and take states the next weekend. Central is to play a part in the position papers, Platform.For-Pgh.org. The school needs space for its own athletic complex. The city should help to make that happen. That's a priority that values the sandlots over stadiums.
