Gosh, Can't They Both Be Mayor?

Um, is the answer "no," or is this a trick question?

Some random mayoral musings this a.m...

In the Houston Chronicle this morning, our old pal and colleague Tom Korosec blames all those "Ed Oakley is gay" articles on TIme magazine. He also discovers that Texas Eagle Forum's Cathie Adams and Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance president Rev. S.C. Nash would make a cute couple on a hate-crime spree...

Late last night Allen Gwinn posted to Dallas.org an ad in which Schutze's new buddy, Hollywood Door owner Jack Pierce, comes out swinging at Oakley, who he accuses of trying to steal his family land. Which is and isn't true, since it was really Bill Blaydes who tries to do the swindlin'. Oakley was just detailing the getaway car. "Paid for by Tom Leppert for Mayor." Jesus, ya think? I'd pay for Jack Pierce to read some books on tape for me...

Dallas Progress' Michael Davis last night shipped our way some more Oakley partisan mailers that went to Southern sector voters. Since they pretty much say the same old thing -- Tom Leppert uses tainted soil to kill schoolchildren, while Ed Oakley's a crime-fighting, wrecking-ball Democrat -- so we're only posting that John Wiley Price postcard at the top, just because I'm incredibly impressed when any man pulls off the purple suit, and I like to share his success.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
