"King" Fenty fell down and lost his office Tuesday as all the king's Michelle Rhees and all the king's frat brothers could not put the mayor back together again.
D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty has lost the Democratic primary, and therefore his re-election because the Republican party is a myth in the District. Fenty lost to D.C. Councilman Vincent Gray in Tuesday's vote. Fenty was down in the polls due to nearly everyone I know not wanting to vote for him. I don't know who was more passionate, my friend Savvy Broad who called the mayor "that boy" or every cab driver I encountered for nearly a month who lectured me on why I needed to vote Fenty out. The Washington Post has an in-depth and fascinating story on what went terribly, terribly wrong.
Short version: Dude was petty and short-sighted.
