Why I will NEVER live in Edina…

Thought I would share a story from today’s StarTrib on the political fight that is intensifying throughout Minnesota at the local level. Susan Covnick, a republican, from Edina tells us that “I grew up in Edina. I am very protective of it.” She said that the Edina of bygone years didn’t allow Laundromats or car washes, and that “we get National Geographic, not the National Enquirer. We don’t even like buses coming through. But the Democrats are moving in from Kenwood and downtown condos.”

This statement leaves me with a few questions? What sort of shallow person would stereotype as such? Where the F#$% does she go to get her car washed then… to those working class neighborhoods? Does her superior intelligence come from reading National Geographic (a great periodical for the record)? Is that the same superior intelligence that told her to vote for George W. Bush in the last 2 elections?

Ms. Convick please put your rose-colored glasses back on and take another hit from your sanctimonious crack pipe. And let’s all remember why they called it Edina – Every Day I Need Attention!
