Jeff Smith Endorses Joe Keaveny

Progressive wunderkind Jeff Smith was in town today from New Hampshire going door-to-door in the Tower Grove Heights neighborhood on behalf of school board candidate Joe Keaveny. Jeff tipped that he may be moving back to St. Louis and is interested in buying a house in the neighborhood. Just think of all the positions he could run for if he lived in the city!

So the guy who lost the only race he was ever in is endorsing people? Mr. Smith, if I ever run for a political office and you feel the need to endorse some one, thanks but no thanks.

Jeff Smith carried both St. Louis City and St. Louis County when he ran for Congress.

Um, wha? I believe there is evidence that plenty of people who go on to careers in elected office lose the first -- even the second and the third -- shots they take. The fact that, in this case, Jeff Smith came from nowhere and came damn near to taking away the presumptive Carnahan birthright says a lot about his future as a public servant. So, yeah, it makes sense to me to send a popular guy out to stump for someone who'd like to have that sheen rub off.

smith is practically a progressive celebrity. if i were the least qualified school board candidate, i'd want him out there stumping for me, too.
