Torres is a hack. If you know how to stroke him, he'll essentially let you write his column for him.

Did anyone else find this line in his column disturbing?

"Ridley is well-spoken and an African-American woman."

I don't think I've ever heard "well-spoken" used to describe a white person - as though it's surprising to the person using the term that black people can be articulate.

This reads like a humor column.

Just 1 week before, Augie Torres said that Symes had the tacit backing of the administration. Now he says that actually, Fulop never liked Symes.

Just 1 week before, he said that Symes had labor backing. Now he says labor was wary of Symes, and that the Solomon campaign was actually meeting with labor the whole time.

Just 1 week before, Torres held the endorsements of other elected officials as proof that the Fulop machine was working behind the scenes for her. Now he says that they "never really work" for the candidate they endorsed.

I really wish I had a job where I could make stuff up and back it up with "sources say."
