Was most impressed the other night, Feb. 25 ? at the county board candidates forum ? oddly enough by Ike Carothers, who got caught, took a plea, and at the forum defended himself plausibly (news accounts not reliable, ?I paid the price?) and lessrelevantly (?I have been contrite . . . I believe in a God that believes in forgiveness?). If elected, he will demonstrate Democratic Party honesty about itself.
Was least impressed by Blake Sercye ? Fenwick Fresh Face, Rahmfather’s pick, a glib fellow whose unbridled confidence oozes from every pore.
Only 27 years old? No problem: He withstood Rahm to his face, he implied. About what? Where? When? Publicly? Was it reported? Who else knows about it? He’s ?young, not new,? has been involved in ? what? politics? the community? ? his ?entire life.? He brings ?new energy to the table.?
