bloggers get pointer at Trib. By the way -- where is the Trib endorsement for City Controller?

Luke's thank-you an afterthought - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review BLOGGERS' GLASS IS HALF FULL. Several anti-Ravenstahl bloggers were searching desperately for a silver lining in the dark clouds of the mayor's victory.

Offered the folks over at The Burgh Report: 'DeSantis has put up the best numbers for a GOP mayoral candidate in Pittsburgh since 1965. Or phrased in the other direction, Luke Ravenstahl's performance was the worst by a Democrat in a Pittsburgh mayoral general election in 42 years.'

The frequent Ravenstahl critics -- and big Trib fans -- over at 2 Political Junkies wrote, 'Look on the bright side ... (local bloggers) will have tons of material for the next two years.'

Ravenstahl couldn't have enjoyed the negative postings about him in recent months, but we're guessing he got a few chuckles reading the blogs Wednesday. What's that old saying about he who laughs last?
