Apparently feeling left out of city council brouhaha’s seen in the past months in Vancouver, Washington, and not getting what he feels is his share of the attention, our newest and youngest member of city council, Bart Hansen decided to chime in on the ongoing exchange between citizens who oppose the boondoggle Columbia River Crossing and extending Portland, Oregon’s financially troubled Loot Rail a short distance into our state, and city council.
Although his condescension towards citizens comes across very clear and plain, he could use a little work on his sarcasm, which fell flat last evening at the council meeting.

Bart, m’boy, I’ll tell you the same thing I said to Tonya Rulli. If you really wish to know about insults and intimidation, talk to a Vietnam Veteran and listen to what we heard, saw and had to deal with coming home from a war few understood in the late 1960′s and early 1970′s. If you re so bothered by hearing “follow the money” and “follow the power,” I doubt you could have handled coming back to America back then after experiencing the hell of Vietnam.
I’ll leave you with one thought, Bart and something you really ought to consider. As you say to citizens, “think how you look on TV.” Imagine what you look like now with this juvenile little rant of yours.
Work on the sarcasm, Bart, you haven’t quite honed it very well just yet. If you need help mastering sarcasm, call me, let’s do lunch.
