A couple of weeks ago Susan Freeze introduced me to John Hanna, the same John Hanna that she had blogged about on this very site. So when Hanna said Ã¢â‚¬Å“Oh! Mike, you have done a wonderful job with the site.Ã¢â‚¬Â I thanked him and was pleased that he reads this small little blog.
Then Hanna said something about how the website was long overdue for a makeover, I realized that he wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t talking about TheLiberalOC.com, but rather the new Orange County Democratic PartyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Website. He thought I was Mike RandallÃ¢â‚¬â€half of the brains behind the overhaul.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m Mike Lawson,Ã¢â‚¬Â I explained. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Not Mike Randall.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Thanks anyway. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll pass on your praise to Mike Randall.
Then surprise surprise when I open up the Orange County Weekly yesterday, as part of my normal Thursday routine and I see the following in Commie GirlÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Column:
Ã¢â‚¬Å“ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s right: Mike Lawson, the new exec director of the OCDP, had the temerity to want to enjoy the Dodgers playoff game before the debate started.Ã¢â‚¬Â
While IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m pleased that my name is floating around in Commie GirlÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s head, Mike Levin is doing a fine job as the executive director, and I havenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t the credentials for such a position.
When I emailed Commie Girl to tease her about the typo, she said that she was calling Levin Ã¢â‚¬Å“LawsonÃ¢â‚¬Â all evening. Ã¢â‚¬Å“ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s probably why he didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t say Ã¢â‚¬Ëœgoodbye,Ã¢â‚¬â„¢Ã¢â‚¬Â she wrote.[The Orange County Democratic Party’s Website–not designed by me] [Commie Girl’s Column @ The OC Weekly]
