All About Yuppie Arlington
Mark Warner and Lisa Collis
Mark Warner and Family
For Yupette of the Year - Victoria Benning, who publishes the Arlington-Alexandria weekly for the Post.
Mark "Where's My Helicopter?" Warner and Lisa "My Daughters are Perfect" Collis.
Adrian 'Mr. Gentrification' Fenty
Adrian Fenty. Look at what he's doing to Columbia Heights. Last African American family out turn off the lights.
Gene Carr, CEO of American Community Newspapers, which publishes the Sun-Gazette.
Second Gene Carr. The ACN newspapers are about Yupscale spending and the Publisher and Editors could care less about anything but more Yupscale advertising.
I nominate the Urban Village Idiots who run the Yuppie economic development agencies in the region.
The publishers of the local weekly yuppie newspapers.
Tough choice between Mark Warner and Adrian Fenty. I'll nominate Fenty because he wants everyone who doesn't earn at least $200,000 / year and have at least $50,000 of disposable income / year OUT of DC.
Mark Warner. There are as many impoverished people in southern Virginia as there are residents of DC. Nothing much has changed after 7 years of Mark Warner and Tim Kaine.
Publishers of Yuppie local newspapers. They've made this region into an expensive socioeconomic zoo where there is almost total mediocrity. Special mention to the Arundel Family.
The Green activists who are only active 8 weeks before elections. Hard to get interested in changing a corrupt system when the reform party is out of sight 10 months every year.
Where ARE the Greens anyway?
Local newspaper publishers and editors. They support the status quo and almost always endorse incumbents,.
I also nominate the wuse local newspapers that support the status quo no matter what the future consequences.
Nominate Status Quo Scott McCaffrey as representative of the Reaganite local news media who are living in 1988.Scott's latest S-G name-calling incident is another insult to Arlington residents who have had it with the meg-infill redevelopment of historic residential neighborhoods.Does Scott actually live in Arlington, or in Middleburg, like Nancy Hunt who pushed to urbanize Lyon Village?
Mark Warner for local Yup of the Year.
I nominate the local media, who are nothing more than shills for the realtors, developers, and auto dealers.
Local TV, Radio, and Newspapers. Also the Washington YupPost.
Victoria Benning and Scott McCaffrey as representatives of the greedy local media.
I nominate the Sun Gazette's Editor Scott "Loopy Leftie" McCaffrey and the Washington YupPost's Northern VA Bureau which never met a Yuppie it didn't want to promote.
Nominate Young Yupublicans and Young Yuppicrats who jointly carry on the tradition of Ronald Reagan in our region.
John Arundel, publisher of the Alexandria Times.
And the Yuppie and Yupette of the Year for 2008 are:Local Yuppie MediaHappy New Year !A.Y.
