Post Gazette Kisses White House Ass, Fawns Over Local Sibs

Thanks to the Post-Gazette, we now know to avoid Chocolate Celebrations and the Milkshake Factory on Southside. 

It is the family business of siblings Chris and Dana Edwards, both of whom are proud members of the Bush Administration.  Dana coordinates POTUS travel and Chris, who bears the title SPECIAL assistant to the President, oversees logistics for the press corp.

For some reason, a Post-Gazette editor decided to waste valuable feature space gushing over the Edwards candy store -White House connection . There's some inane reasoning that running a candy store prepares you to work in the White House.  It is good that at least someone in the White House has run a successful business. 

The best part is that Dana got her job because of her brother.  It doesn't get more obvious that this Administration is not run by the most talented people, but by the most connected. 

After annoying us with some pathetic jokes about Chris buying her a pearl necklace and how much money they make (poor Dana makes less — imagine a woman making less!), the PG gives us this total line of garbage:

Both display the unswerving loyalty to the administration that George and Laura Bush seem to inspire in many of their young staffers. In interviews, Chris continually tried to turn the conversation about his own family back to how the president's emphasis on family inspires him.

The PG thinks its news that two bright young Pittsburghers have been hoodswinked by the “family value” lies dripping out of the White House.  Or, more likely, that Dana and Chris are young, upwardly-mobile, heterosexual, white adults who are willing to trade every bit of decency and intelligence they may posess for their own personal advancement and career trajectories.  Chris and Dana are perfect examples of privileged hypocrites who don't give a flying fig about Pittsburgh families.

All the while selling us chocolate.  And milkshakes.

Thus Pittsburgh queers and allies, you are duly warned that Chocolate Celebrations and the Milkshare Factory are owned by traitors who contribute to the Administration that wants to strip us of every civil right we deserve.

  • It is more evidence supporting the recent Nation article by Tom Geoghegan, Help Wanted: GOP Managers. Republican “success” has led to such high salaries for upper managers that now no one competent will take the paycut and work for the government.
    “You're doing a heck of a job, Brownie.”

  • Hey Hey Hey Why So Mean?
    Come on now — how DARE you equate the White House with competent know-something-about-something-important employees?
    All you have to do to be a “friend” of the Bush White House is be RICH, WHITE, HETEROSEXUAL (or hillbilly), GOD FEARING BIBLE thumping hypocritical jackass, who has an overpaid position and does not question what the Lord whispers in George's ear.
    Wha's da matter you? We be the bestest nation in the world that tells the rest of the world how they should act on civil rights (a la Muslim mode, of course).
    Welcome to the hillbilly-ization of the United Shitheads of America.
    Eat the Republican Right chocolate — its bible thumpin good and gives you zits in places not even your mother wants to see!

  • I wouldn't be so harsh. I had the chocolate recently and it is SO GOOD. You have to try it. I also met the girl in the story Dana and she's really hot. The White House boy in the picture looks pretty cute too. Let's not be so partisan.

  • Hey Sue (poster of the blog),
    Just because you don't agree with our President / Government or the fact that you think society judges us because we are different or because your parents just didn't hug you enough as a child doesn't give you the right to attack those you don't know…I have met both of these individuals and they are simply the kindest, most non-judgmental, caring people you will ever want to meet. If you had someone half a great as them to call a friend you would be the luckiest girl in the world.
    Also, concerning your comment about Chocolate Celebrations & The Milkshake Factory…It is, by far the best place in Pittsburgh (if not the entire United States) for Chocolate and Ice Cream. The FDA should ban the sale of the Peanut Butter Meltaways and the Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Milkshakes because they are more addictive than any drug I've ever had.
    Going back to Chris and Dana, you are simply dead wrong about their character…and you, taking the time to post this blog about a subject that you are completely ignorant about is an open book to your character. Stop being a bitch.
    Thank you…that is all.

  • See Mark, that's the beauty about America. You and I are both free to speak our minds. I can say that the ice cream twins are traitorous sycophants who represent everything that's wrong and twisted with capitalism. And you can call me a bitch.
