When he isn’t keeping us informed of the restaurant scene in the Valley of the Jakes, Jason Rose uses his Twitter feed to treat us to political analysis. By “political analysis,” I mean overblown cheerleading for even the most minor league Republicans (Vernon Parker, anyone?) and casual dismissal of the importance of any politician that doesn’t genuflect in his direction with the proper amount of gusto.
But, I’ve detected a change. Here is Rose this morning:
Well done secretary salazar:why do anything to infringe on #grandcanyon? Too, single biggest economic generator in #arizona besides weather
Extra adverb aside, I’m glad to have an ally on the other side on this. Doubly so because it seems that the rest of the Republican establishment that Rose runs with are doing everything but grabbing shovels and learning the proper spelling of pitchblende.
I’d dismiss this as “Rose must not have gotten the contract with the uranium mines,” except here’s another Tweet from this weekend:
Should I stay or should I go? Don bivens really to clash w/ perhaps best bio (carmona) 2 ever run 4 #arizona office? Top democrats say no
Wait, did he just say that Richard Carmona has the best bio to ever run for Arizona office? First off, what about Buckey O’Neill? More importantly, did he just have high praise, highest praise even, for a Democratic candidate?
Is Rose broadening his horizons or has he had enough of some of the clowns he runs with?
