OK, this whole campaign has turned into a mess. Janet Nguyen may just end up with a free ride to reelection just at a time when she least deserves it. Van Tran should be embarassed that he ever endorsed Dina Nguyen. And now, we have sufficient evidence to show us that Hoa Van Tran has squandered his support from OC Democrats by effectively going AWOL when his campaign began to go up in flames.
And in the mean time, it’s hurt me to see our community here at TheLiberalOC.com become embroiled in the entire mess that this race has become. So you know what? I’ve had it with this First Supe race.
I’ve had it with the meaningless melodrama that the Paul Lucas sideshow has become. I’ve had it with innocent folks being unnecessarily being caught up in the drama of it all. I’ve had it with the lack of civility from commenters on both sides of this dispute. And above all else, I’ve had it with the Hoa Van Tran campaign bringing down the entire Democratic Party simply because it can’t get its act together.
So now, I have no other choice. I’m done with everything First Supe. I may actually live in the district, but that doesn’t mean I must pay attention to all this ado about nothing. From now on, I’ll do my best to act like this race isn’t even happening. If the Hoa supporters here want to continue living in denial as Hoa’s campaign continues to implode, that’s their problem… Not mine. And if some folks here want to continue beating this dead horse that is the Hoa campaign while good Democrats running in other local races continue to be ignored, then who am I to stop them?
I’m just fed up with the fiasco that this entire situation has become, so at this point I guess the only thing I have left to do to make an impact for the better is by being a good example to this community… And I really think that this means I need to get out of this unnecessary drama and stay out of it for good.
So who’s with me here? Would you rather like for us to talk about how Democrats can win locally? Would you rather like for us to talk about how we can help good Democrats like Loretta Sanchez and Debbie Cook rather than obsess over how horribly wrecked Hoa’s campaign has become? OK, then… This is your community as much as it’s mine. We can choose to talk about what we want to talk about.
Alright, so do we have it settled? If tired of the 1st District drama, then you can rest assured that you won’t get any more of that from me. I’m done with it, and I’m ready to move on just as much as you are. Great, so let’s get back to talking about the real, important stuff…
