Sal DiCiccio, a member of the Phoenix City Council, hasn't exactly hidden the fact that he covets the office of mayor of Phoenix, Arizona's largest city.
He's become the local public face of the Rs' anti-public employee pension movement and now he's taken to applying the principles of "Obama Derangement Syndrome" to the current mayor, Greg Stanton.
In today's example, he takes something good, mildly praises it, and then uses the good thing as an excuse to disparage the target of his ire.
From his Twitter feed, posted earlier today:
Early prediction: Next year's campaign season in Phoenix is going to be Ugly. DiCiccio will run *against*, well, pretty much everything. He's going to spend so much time demonizing public employees, Greg Stanton, and pretty much anybody who isn't in a position to line his pockets that no one will notice he has nothing positive to offer the people of Phoenix.
