“I am sick and tired of people putting down this board because you are putting me down,” Smiley said. “I think we’ve been doing a pretty good job.”

McLemore joined the fray, saying he knew he had made mistakes, but proceeded to read Bryan the tea leaves of her future.

“I am going on my fourth term,” McLemore said addressing Bryan. “I can tell you you’ll never make that.”

He said his comment on “blow-ins” was directed at eight or 10 people with whom Bryan was familiar.

“I want to see you four years from now,” McLemore continued to Bryan. “You will be lucky to last two years.”

Bryan replied to McLemore’s comments about following his example by saying, “I will never do what you have done.”

And Barbara Radcliff came to the podium wondering what McLemore meant about Bryan being lucky to last two years.
