A final word on tonight’s AJC/WSB debate of the Atlanta mayoral candidates:
The closing statements were the usual fare – no news, but one of the weirdest transpositions, between fervent Democrat Kasim Reed and alleged Republican Mary Norwood.
Norwood, despite that flyer declaring she hobnobs with Limbaugh, Bush and Palin, pilfered the speechifying of Barack Obama:
“I represent change and hope and a new direction for this city,” she declared.
While Reed was actually Reaganesque. “What I will be is a mayor that stands and delivers for you,” he said. “I still believe that Atlanta is a city on a hill….”
This is why you’ve gotta love politics.
