Apt Description, Political Marketing in Miami-Dade and Coral Gables

I like this description of politics in Washington.

I think that the same perceptions applies to local government, Miami-Dade and Coral Gables.  Clearly, sharp commentary and strong questions are not welcome in local government forums.

The city is beautiful (except now for the horrible snails) and the politics are easy where you can get away with just about any sort of distortion of the truth in the commission chamber and in the election campaign.

Washington has become a city of ideological marketing, where those who would note that the emperors have no facts are unwelcome in their own newsrooms. It is a city where access matters most and those who ask tough questions don’t get access.
