An interesting post at Red County calling on the OC GOP to remain neutral on the first district county suupervisor’s race was posted Wednesday night just proves that no matter what she does, Janet Nguyen just can’t win.

I think first and foremost we should keep in mind that we are talking about the Vietnamese-American community.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â We should be very happy that we have, on our side, the highest Viet-American elected official in the United States, in Assemblyman Van Tran.Ã‚Â In a state like California, where Republicans struggle to attract minorities, we were able to groom and cultivateÃ‚Â the most prominent leader of a politically ambitious immigrant community.Ã‚Â We should embrace that opportunity, notÃ‚Â ignore it.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â
I’m not a Janet fan.Ã‚Â But she did win an election after challenging a handpicked Van Tran ally and I guess these people value party loyalty over the will of the voters.Ã‚Â Its fun to watch this little power grab play out.
For all of Janet’s faults pointed out by Viroel, there is little criticism of the mistakes made by Dina Nguyen in this race that make the case for her to be a more effective supervisor than Janet.
