It just seems that Pat Lykos can't help herself from alienating all the Assistant D.A.'s that she seeks to lead.
In her response to the Kenneth Magidson's appointment in the Chronicle article today, she stated:
Lykos said she was pleased that reforms could begin immediately under a new district attorney "and that the Rosenthal-Siegler era will be ending."
Lykos, who clearly realizes that she is intellectually, skillfully, and charismatically over matched by Kelly Siegler is now trying to play the "name-association game", by tacking on the name "Siegler" to "Rosenthal" when describing the administration. She's hoping that all of the Rosenthal dirt will then be carried onto Kelly (and hopefully making up some of those 14,000 points that she trailed Kelly by on March 4th).
Do you see how it works? Lykos is hoping if she repeats the term "Rosenthal-Siegler" enough that everyone will think Kelly did all the bad things that Chuck did. In other words, just repeat until people think it's true.
It would be kind of like if people continuously referred to Pat as:
The Constitution-violating Pat Lykos
The ethically challenged Pat Lykos.
The dishonest and vulgar Pat Lykos.
The anti-Semitic Pat Lykos.
The arrogant Pat Lykos.
The Civil Rights-violating Pat Lykos; or
The sociopathic Pat Lykos.
See how that works?
And the only thing that should be ending any time soon is Lykos' unmitigated ambition to run for Offices that she isn't capable of handling.
