The Real Deal versus The Raw Deal
A reporter friend of mine just related the most interesting story about a Fourth of July parade she attended in her neighboring Montgomery County today.
TroyFest is apparently a big one -- a full blown, all-day street festival that begins with a parade showcasing Americana at it's finest... fire trucks, clowns, old timey cars and, of course, political candidates like Larry Kissell and Robin Hayes.
But Troy you see is in the 8th District. And that means two things these days - The town has lost jobs, lots of them, due directly to Hayes' bad trade policies he promised to vote against before he voted for them, and he still has to drag his fat ass over there anyway for the parade and pretend like he didn't just piss on the locals' leg and tell them it's raining.
So my reporter friend had much to say about how the day played out, the most interesting of which is Hayes is in serious trouble.
