Best Served Cold

Caught this nugget in an interesting and well-researched piece on Minneapolis City Councilwoman Lisa Goodman in City Pages:

Goodman's strong, direct style has earned her enemies. They are reluctant to speak out against her precisely because of how much power she wields and her willingness to punish those who cross her.

"She's vengeful--sort of like George Bush--when you go against her," says one architect who has dealt with her extensively on projects. "She will eat you."

Vengeful? Like George Bush? Liberal attacks on President Bush ran the gamut from drunken village idiot to diabolical evil genius and pretty much everything in between. But I don't know where this "vengeful" bit came from. I can't recall specific incidents where we saw this Wrath of Bush in action.

But to the art school drop-out with a tilty desk, and a big ruler, a comparison of Goodman's vengeful nature to Bush's is perfectly apt. It was also apparently instantly understood and accepted by the CP's reporter.
