Go Speed Racer – R. Shawn Nelson for Supervisor

Speed Racer Nelson

R. Shawn Nelson, is running as fast as he can for the office of Orange County Supervisor in the Fourth District. He is currently a member of the Fullerton City Council. The Honorable Mr. Nelson is a criminal defense attorney. Even though he should be proud that he has made a fortune ensuring the rights of all individuals to legal counsel, he avoids mentioning that fact on his campaign website. Why would he think that his clients might be a political liability?

Recently, I learned about something else he fails to mention is that he has a bit of a lead foot. Three times in the past seven years, he has been pulled over for driving above the speed limit. Nelson was cited on September 3, 2003, March 19, 2008, and March 23, 2009 for driving in excess of 65 miles per hour on the freeway by the California Highway Patrol. Makes me wonder if we should have the three strikes law include speeding.

It seems that Mr. Nelson can’t read those speed limit signs on the freeway.

Go Speed, Go!

      Oh come on. The title and picture makes the point. Have you heard of political satire? Political Humor?

      Seriously, having speeding tickets doesn’t disqualify Mr. Nelson from holding office. But the fact that he cannot learn the speed limit while trying to scrub all other possibly negative informaton about himself from history in order to run for Supervisor is kind of funny.

      Go Speed Nelson, Go Speed Nelson.

    Here he comes
    Her comes Speed Racer
    He’s a demon on wheels
    He’s a demon and he’s gonna be chasin’ after someone.

    He’s gainin’ on you so you better look alive.
    He’s busy revvin’ up a powerful Mach 5.

    And when the odds are against him
    And there’s dangerous work to do
    You bet your life Speed Racer
    Will see it through.

    Go Speed Racer
    Go Speed Racer
    Go Speed Racer, Go!

    He’s off and flyin’ as he guns the car around the track
    He’s jammin’ down the pedal like he’s never comin’ back
    Adventure’s waitin’ just ahead.

    Go Speed Racer
    Go Speed Racer
    Go Speed Racer, Go!
