Byron Brown reading from...."My Pet Goat"
So here it is. The Byron Brown SAMO Waltz:
Step 1. Indignantly deny:
“I have nothing to do with Ray McGurn.”Step 2. Immediately appear to back up the claim with emphatic but irrelevant facts:
“McGurn was appointed by Masiello. He is Masiello’s Commissioner.”Step 3. Begin to obfuscate the allegation with a carefully phrased and incomplete truth“...who happens to be a member of a large organization in South Buffalo holding a fundraiser for me.”Step 4. Finish it off with all the pharisaic spin you can muster:
“He is not the head of the organization and he is not the chair of the fundraiser.”But Byron lost it at Step 3. What could have been a masterful waltz right past a rank and steaming pile turned into a sloppy bellyflop right in the middle of it. In short, to claim that Ray McGurn is just “a member of a large organization in South Buffalo” strains all credibility.
