Over here atÃ‚Â TheLiberalOC.com we really do enjoy the dialogue with Steven Greenhut over at theÃ‚Â OCRegister, even if I can’t convince our spam filter thatÃ‚Â Steven’s commentsÃ‚Â aren’t really spam.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â
Yes folks, he really does believe the stuff he writes, particularly over on the Orange PunchÃ‚Â blog.Ã‚Â With that in mind, and in recognition of the Orange Punch coverage of the flat-earther belief that global warming is a myth, I created the graphic below.
Today Steven took us to task over our coverage of the Chriss Street scandals and the link between Supervisor John Moorlach, and his hand picked successor Treasurer Chriss Street.Ã‚Â The headline to his post reads Sticking to the union line.
I found this comment particularly funny; “They link to an old picture of Moorlach and Street back from the days when Chriss was assistant treasurer.”Ã‚Â It’s funny because we pulled the picture from Friday’s coverage of Chriss Street in the Register.Ã‚Â Greenhut goes on to insinuate that we are misrepresenting Supervisor Moorlach’s position on Street’s troubles.
Now, I know that Ã¢â‚¬Å“gotchaÃ¢â‚¬Â oftentimes replaces accuracy on some blogs, but the news stories IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve read suggest that Moorlach is taking a non-commital approach to the scandal surrounding Street. Street is being investigated by the feds for his role in a bankruptcy deal back when he was in private industry.Ã‚Â
Steven you forget that these concerns were raised last year, heck you even linked to them in your April 26, 2006 post Street: Much ado about nothingÃ‚Â on Orange Punch.Ã‚Â Moorlach had not problem at that time giving his full support to Chriss Street.Ã‚Â I do not accept Moorlach’s attempt to suddenly distance himself from Street now as being anything but a political ploy.
While I will admit that it is with some glee thatÃ‚Â I watch the troubles of the Treasurer, and thatÃ‚Â I am right up there at the front of the line wanting to Kick Chriss To The Street, we are not just “Sticking to the Union Line” here. I was on board with the concerns about the ethics of Mr. Street when he was running for Treasurer. My opinion has not changed.Ã‚Â Chriss Street is a crook, to the core.Ã‚Â He is an arrogant waster of public funds.Ã‚Â I’m just waiting for the first round of unitemized expenses from his office for his Botox injections.
So Steven, thank you for your contribution to Global Warming today.
