But Moorlach is an honorable man.

Friends, Republicans, Orange County peasants, lend me your ears.
I come to bury Chriss Street, not to praise him.
The evil that men do lives after them;
The good is oft interrèd with their bones.
So let it be with Street.

The noble Moorlach hath told you Street has failed us.
If it is so, it is a grievous fault,
And grievously shall Street answer for it.
For Moorlach is an honorable man.

Come I to speak at Street’s funeral.
He was Moorlach’s friend, faithful and just to him.

But Moorlach says Street did mislead him about his scandals.
This must be true for Moorlach hath predicted the fall of Citron,
and the disaster of the County bankruptcy.
Yet did not Street tell him of this first?
And Moorlach is an honorable man. 

When Moorlach appointed Street his assistant,
He praised his knowledge and experience.
And Moorlach is an honorable man. 

When Moorlach endorsed Street his successor,
He stood by him when the scandals became known.
Yet Moorlach says he knew nothing was wrong,
And Moorlach is an honorable man.

You all did see that Street spent $1 million to remodel his palace;
Far more than the $200,000 the noble Moorlach hath spent on his,
And Moorlach is an honorable man.

Moorlach, was the only supervisor to endorse Street’s campaign last year,
And has acknowledged that Street had gained office on his coattails.
Yet Moorlach says that news of the scandals is disconcerting.
And that now Street must resign.
And sure he is an honorable man.

I speak not to disprove what Moorlach has spoken,
But here I am to speak what I do know.
You all did love Street once, though without cause.
What cause withholds you then to mourn for him?
O Judgment, thou art fled to brutish beasts,
And men have lost their reason!
But Moorlach is an Honorable Man.

Bear with me.

My heart is in the coffin there with Chriss Street,
And I must pause till it come back to me.

    Moorlach’s malfeasance in this matter shines like a klieg light in a darkroom. Moorlach manipulated the

    process to ensure Street had the right title to run as Moorlach’s hand picked successor in the Treasurer’s

    office.

    The sloppiness in not investigating Street’s troubles is only indicative of an individual who doesn’t know what he’s doing and is a bad judge of character. When is someone going to investigate the slanted manner in which Moorlach manipulated the system to ensure Street was the only candidate available. That should tell you all you need to know about the relationship between these two individuals.

    This will become only more apparent as Moorlach’s fight with the deputies gets its arse shot off in court where real lawyers and jurists will laugh this case out of court. The fun part will be how Moorlach will justify the expense to the taxpayers who will be forced to pay the legal fees for the lawyers working this case on behalf of the deputies. Don’t beleve me? Ask the San Diego City Council how much they’ve enjoyed getting their butts kicked in court and then paying the city’s and defendant’s legal fees in their pension case.

    Dusting off my Shakespeare, I recall yet another example describing “the honorable Moorlach”…

    “Methinks the lady doth protest too much”
    Hamlet

    I also need to know (1) Exactly and completely what Moorlach knew and; (2) what date, year and time he kneweth.

    This post is as funny as Conan O Brien’s skit “In the Year Two Thousand.” Thanks folks! I’m always in need of a good laugh.
