Birmingham opts for the past
Well I was wrong. I thought Patrick Cooper would become the new Mayor of Birmingham yesterday but he lost by a 54 to 46% margin to Jefferson County Commissioner/ex Birmingham Mayor/perennial job jumper William Bell. What can you say other than I guess Birmingham likes living in the past. Its the 1970's all over again in Birmingham! The Crimson Tide are the national champions in college football and William Bell is the man of the hour. Oh happy day! Pretty much the only winners out of this other than William Bell of course is the Alabama GOP. Given his age, Patrick Cooper would've been an instant superstar in the Alabama Democrat Party if he had won yesterday.
