Reservoir Dogs

This is sort of in response to the flap between the Obama/Hillary camps over David Geffin’s remarks (I love how the only time someone like Geffen is taken seriously by the GOP is when he’s critical of another Democrat…funny how that happens). Remember the scene in Tarantino’s 1992 film Reservoir Dogs where the gang all…

Congressman Oblivious

Rep. John Campbell (R-Irvine) recently had a meet-and-greet at Peet’s in Tustin where he was met by a smattering of War Protesters and War Supporters.  But Congressman Obvilious uttered this powerful statement, captured by the Irvine World News: “We are in a long war with people…who want to kill us.  No one has yet offered…

Walter Reed Hospital: SNAFU

I read this Flash Report post by John Campbell prior to the House vote on the troop surge in Iraq and he was all red, white and blue about supporting the Troops.  As is Rep. Royce.  As is Rep. Rohrabacher.  One could argue that there’s a “who supports the troops more” contest among the GOP…

JFK’s “I am a Liberal” Speech 9/14/1960

(Accused) Terrorist Loves the RNC

Chuch DeVore recently over on OCBlog.net about his proposed legislation to prevent terrorists or those who support terrorist organizations from being state employees.  Basically, I think Chuck is worried about the next smoking gun in California might be a jihadist clerk in the DMV.  I have a…

PAC-man

Marty Wisckol’s column in Monday’s Register outs GOP consultant Adam Problesky and the Lincoln Club as the parties behind the Irvine City, School and Neighborhood Leaders Committee, the group that put out some of the meanest and nastiest fliers in last fall’s city election in Irvine.  Out and out falsehoods, fear and propaganda, or what…

Rudy Guiliani’s Ego Trip Requirements

  Remember the story last year about VP Dick Cheney’s travel requests? (Big Dick wants every TV in the hotel tuned to Fox News of course.)But the Veep is a piker compared to the travel demands of OC Presidential hopeful and thrice-married/twice chated Rudy Guiliani. Check out Hizzonor’s list of demands here.  With all my…
