Slay, Nixon Find Little Irony in Parroting "Larry the Cable Guy"
|You might be a redneck if ... you quote Larry the Cable Guy.|
On his blog this afternoon, St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay showered praise on Nixon and the hub to be called, St. Louis Aerotropolis. Slay concluded his musings by throwing out his own "let's get it done" shout out.
To which one could ask, do we really want our politicians quoting Larry the Cable Guy? And don't they realize that the comedian's "Git-R-Done" tagline is a joke about doing a half-ass job as quickly and as thoughtlessly as possible?
That's worth pondering given recent concerns that the aerotropolis project is incredibly naive and/or infeasible.
