Rocky Anderson on Utah, Kafka and the Taliban

Quoth Mayor Anderson: " 'I truly feel like we're in the middle of a Kafka novel sometimes, with a little bit of Taliban thrown in.'" Would the Taliban portion be the obnoxious street preachers or someone else? The Mayor needs to remember that his constituincy can read the papers in England just as well as they can read the papers in the US.

My question is: If he is so liberal how come he got elected?

Two reasons: SLC is a pretty liberal town and second he had just placated enough of the LDS minority (LDS= minority in SLC, little known fact) with Main Street deal to put him over the top. I think his lack of constructive politics has caused him to loose favor with the liberal crowd too. But I don't live in SLC anymore so its hard to say.
