Messenger Proves a Broken Clock Is Right At Least Twice a Day

July 24th, 2008 by mopns · No Comments

It’s amazing how objective and insightful Post Dispatch capitol beat reporter Tony Messenger can be when he’s writng about two Republicans in a tough primary battle:

“It wouldn’t be right for me to choose a winner or loser. But I’ll say this: Hulshof put all his eggs in the “she’s being mean to me” basket. Will that resonate with voters?

But make no mistake: Steelman was strong on ethanol, she continued to harp on the congressional earmarks, and Hulshof really set himself up when he asked her to name something positive in his record. She hit that question out of the park by meandering through his earmarks. And her responses to his charge of negative campaigning were effective.

For somebody who’s playing the “rough around the edges” card, Steelman has performed capably in the last two debates.”

Wonder if Tony’s new found objectivity will last after August 5th?
