commented on Candidate Survivor Live Slog!
Wasnt really awesome- way more fun to read the live coverage than actually being there- I left right after the Conlin rap. Luckily this is still an auxillary skill when it comes to running the city.
Which is really my point: I get the attempt to the youngins an informal side of the candidates, and yes the event did get me to come when other voter forums havent, but I find it a little ridiculous and sad that most of the folks in the room are going to remember the candidates downright pathetic talents more than who has the political chops to navigate the crazy huge bueracracies, budget oversight, as well the crazy neighborhood activists. It seems a pretty tricky job and one-arm push ups just dont seem that relevant.
Did I just get old?
