      I covered this topic in a comment over at slackiinoff's diary.

      But, do you think one (additional) loon on the Jacksonville City Council is more significant than having a Democratic mayor? I'm not sure I see the point of your comment.

      In any case, here is what I had to say about Kimberly Daniels' victory (Taylor was the person she beat):

      Daniels NOT good news (2+ / 0-)
      In fact, the true "booby prize" of last night's election was the victory of "Democrat" Kimberly Daniels. As I watched Brown's numbers go up I noticed that Daniels' tracked his fairly closely. I just decided that having an African-American Democratic mayor was worth the price of one lunatic on City Council.

      slackiinoff, you're forgiven for not knowing this, because it received very little attention, but Daniels is certifiably crazy! She calls herself "the Demonbuster," she is virulently anti-gay, and she has claimed that Halloween candy is “prayed over by witches... Curses are sent through the tricks and treats of the innocent whether they get it by going door to door or by purchasing it from the local grocery store. The demons cannot tell the difference.

      I highlighted my favorite line!

      If nothing else, she'll provide entertainment. Those City Council meetings are all so boring...
