I'm sure the political bloggers are going to have a great play by play on the resurrection of the billboard controversy

I keep wondering why Dowd speaks for himself and Ravenstahl hides behind Paul McKrell's articulate self?  Well, ok, I answered my own question.  I like Paul, but I wonder what magic potion he swallows to actually say this with a straight face.

Mr. McKrell called the councilman's challenge "one of the most negative campaigns ever waged by a candidate for an office in Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh deserves better than desperate mud-slingers."

Yes, we do.  We also deserve better than pay for play chicanery and a tween Mayor dressed up in big boy's clothing.
