Larry O’Neal is definitely in, according to Travis Fain at the Telegraph.
I’m sorry, but I read these two paragraphs and was struck by a profound sense that O’Neal is fine with all the scotch and strippers, but Glenn’s ex-wife turned Glenn into a distraction.
O’Neal promised a different style than Richardson’s boisterous and often confrontational ways. O’Neal acknowledged that Richardson’s affair was common knowledge at the Capitol following Richardson’s divorce in early 2008. But he said it was the stunning interview Richardson’s ex-wife gave to an Atlanta TV station late last month that turned a problem into “too much of a distraction.”
O’Neal said he didn’t know why Burkhalter is stepping away from the speaker’s office and described himself as “a judge-not and I-won’t-be-judged kind of guy, as long as the work gets done.”
Is that really the guy we want? It seems the “hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil” management style got us where we are in the first place.
I think we might need a Google candidate. Their motto is “don’t be evil.” Of course, I’ve always thought that seemed to be an admission against interests that their default was evil, but we could use some “don’t be evil” types.
Let’s be honest — screwing around behind your wife’s back is pretty crappy and if you’re going to cheat on someone who can sue you for half, I suspect you’ll have even less of a problem screwing your principles since they can’t sue you for half.
