Editor's Column: Parnell crashes and burns, killing Democrats’ hopes in 5th District

Archie Parnell stopped by my office one day during last year’s special congressional election, and we chatted for 20 minutes or so.
I liked him. He was one of the calmest, most mild-mannered, understated politicians I’ve ever met. He smiled easily, listened well, spoke softly and carefully, and made good eye contact and coherent policy points. He poked fun at himself. Some of his campaign commercials were flat-out hilarious.
No one is laughing now.
