A year ago Mike Flynn (self proclaimed Middle Class Mike) was a regular contributor to the local paper as an advocate for Councilman Smith in the Mayor's race. Mr. Flynn took to blogs and talk shows as well with a strong evisceration of your's truly and he became ubiquitous in the process.
MCM's candidate didn't win, and some have argued that MCM's acerbic advocacy was so over the top it may have done more harm than good. Who know's ? He is a bright and engaging talker, who keeps it interesting.
This year MCM has set his sights on the relection of Rep. Bill Owens and his target to rip is likely GOP challenger Matt Doheny.
He is beating the drum on the the issue of Doheny's purported smooch in a DC restaurant that other local media have generally ignored. Mr. Flynn has gone as far as ripping one media baron who was his ally last year. MCM is openly criticising the WDT and its Managing Editor, Bob Gorman. MCM contends the media needs to demand a press conference on the dinner in DC.
As for me, I have no beef with Bob this year. Heck, his household even has a "Mayor's Bar" t-shirt. The irony of MCM's attacks on the local media doesn't escape me though.
It reminds me of the old adage in politics, that if you don't like the way things are, just wait a minute and it will all change.
