Monkette tells Mayor Kevin Burns "It ain't over 'til it's over!"

Monkette and I took Robin with us over to city hall to watch the ballot tabulations and maybe at least find out who made the run-offs. Robin isn't much into politics so Monkette sat next to her, explaining what was going on, how it all worked, as I wandered around talking to people. As things got underway I took my seat and Monkette sat up on my knee for a better view of the goings on. She really got miffed big time when the Channel 4 reporter and camera man interviewed the guy next to her, though. She wanted to be the first toy monkey ever to talk politics on TV. She calmed down a bit later when we got home though. There she was, plainly visible, on the 11 o'clock news! Maybe after the June 2nd run-off, I told her! It ain't over 'til it's over!

It's been two years now since Monkette first burst onto the North Miami political scene, planning strategy and executing a flawless and successful re-election campaign for Mayor Kevin Burns. Term limits prevent him from running again and now he has his sights set on a run for a Florida senate seat. Before the vote counting got underway the other night Kevin wanted to get another "photo op" with Monkette, North Miami's premier political consultant. Just look at that grin on the mayor's face as he and Councilwoman Marie Steril shower Monkette with praise for another job well done. Marie has a pretty good grin there too!
