LAST: Gahan and Coffey Together Forever, Part 8: Open thread: City council meeting of Monday, February 2 (3 February 2009).

After nearly five minutes of deep reflection, following an afternoon spent feeling as though I might vomit at any moment — such is the revulsion that the preceding chapters of New Albany’s eternally recurring political “business as usual” have engendered — I can think of no comprehensive way of summarizing the sheer toxicity of the twenty-year partnership between the faux urbanist mayor and coiled copperhead councilman, save for this Harvey “Two Face” Dent view from the Batman comics.

I don’t have the Photoshop skills to do it right (heck, I don’t even have Photoshop), but your imagination should suffice. The only problem is determining which half is which.

Matt Lorch, if you’re reading, thanks for your service. It’s small consolation that so many other victims of the local Democratic Party’s rapidly declining “machine” have fallen before you, though at least there are likely to be fewer in the future, because a “machine” that must rely on the likes of Dan Coffey for routine maintenance is destined for history’s landfill.

The sooner is lands there, the better. Does it really matter whether anything rises from Adam Dickey’s ashes?
