Miami Herald Endorses Luther Campbell? Hell Nah! He's Our Candidate!

Categories: Luke's Gospel
Bad enough The Miami Herald poaches New Times stories without giving us credit, but now they want to co-opt our mayoral candidate. Yesterday, the city's only major daily newspaper published a column by local African American blogger Joy-Ann Reid essentially endorsing Luther Campbell for county mayor. The 726-word opinion piece lays out some pretty compelling reasons why Uncle Luke is the best candidate for the job, even crediting his provocative columns published by this newspaper. For a minute, we had to check if pigs were flying over Biscayne Bay.

Reid argues Republicans mocked Jimmy Carter's candidacy, while Democrats derided Ronald Reagan's presidential aspirations, yet both men got elected commander in chief. She adds, "Campbell, of course is no Reagan -- and no Carter, either. But in a country that has largely merged corporate celebrity and politics, Luke is as credible a candidate as any."

There you have it.
