Breaking: Frank Antenori is a Windbag

Back in January, when Councilman Steve Kozachik announced that he was becoming a Democrat after being forced out of the local Republican Party for the high crime of listening to his constituents, the perpetually constipated former State Senator Frank Antenori (R-Not Tucson) announced not simply that he was recruiting a candidate, but that there already was someone waiting in the wings to take down the incumbent:

“I don’t want to spoil it yet, but he’s an independent,” Antenori said. “He’s well liked by both Democrats and Republicans. If we can rally the Repbublicans and some of the Democrats and the independents behind this guy, I think we can beat (Kozachik).”

Even at the time, this was obvious bunk. We all know that Frank considers all Democrats to be commies, sissies, and dirty pot-smoking hippies, and it is impossible to imagine that an individual with crossover appeal is going to meet with his approval.

This being said, Frank’s imaginary friend has failed to materialize. The deadline to file as a write-in candidate for City Council passed on Thursday. This was the last chance for a challenger to emerge, and no one filed. Kozachik will have no opponent. Clearly, Frank is not nearly as well-connected in this community as some would have us believe.

Can we stop taking this guy seriously?

    I’m sure that he’s winning the race in his head, although it’s probably as effective as the skywriter he hired last November:

  2. Perhaps Frank was trying to convince Manti Te’o’s girlfriend to run. [/rimshot]

    Tucson will follow Detroit. It is not a matter of if but when. The Democrat Tucson City Council can’t raise taxes quick enough to fend off the inevitable. Maybe Frank realized the only person with a brain on the city council is Koz.

  4. Do you mean to say that there are people who DO take Antenori seriously? I’m shocked! ;)
