>Ogden On Politics

7 Sep

>Somewhat related to Tam’s post covering the latest on allegedly (hahaha) DUI Officer Bisard, Paul K. Ogden writes about the Marion County GOP and the 2011 mayoral election.

It’s starting to add up to a one-term Mayor. If his party was clever — as opposed to loyal — they’d scare up someone better and try to forget the lad. Don’t hold your breath.

When it comes to the grassroots, Mayor Ballard and his handlers have a tin ear; witness their continued but low-key presence at Indy 1500 gun shows, after any number of gunny-alienating moves and zero effort at conciliation. Y’know, “But we ain’t Democrats!” starts to ring pretty hollow after you’ve (metaphorically) been stabbed in the back a few times. You’re not the only game in town, either.

Me, I wonder who the Libertarians are going to run.
