Bill Sloat has the fedora on and is doing the virtual beat walking. So far, my take is he’s getting sunshine blown up his skirt relative to LaTourette’s involvement in getting Jeff Coryell fired from the PeeDee’s failed “Wide Shut” experiment.

All he said was “wassup wid dat”?

Yeah. Right. Whatchoo Talkin’ ’bout Willis?!

The Congressman is looking for cover because he knows this thing has blown up in both his and the PeeDee’s faces. It wouldn’t be so bad if he didn’t have a strong challenger this time out. He’s staring at Bill “Mo’ money from Mo’ bodies” O’Neill in ’08. Not a cakewalk.

The better cover might have been for the PeeDee to shut down “Wide Shut” entirely and claim business reorganization or some shit. Firing Coryell was blatant and meant to do only one thing: preemptively silence one of the congressman’s biggest critics. What the LaTourette folks don’t want you to hear about is going to be heard. You can bet on that.
