Fundraising Fail: Choi doesn’t capitalize on Pelosi smear

When Rep. Joe Wilson famously shouted “You Lie!” at President Obama’s joint address to Congress on healthcare reform, the South Carolina Republican was able to parlay that classless utterance into hundreds of thousands of dollars for his re-election (his opponent was also able to raise tons of cash).  Last December, Irvine Council member Steven Choi…

Assembly Candidate Jerry Amante Touts an Endorsement from “Open” Mike Duvall

In another chapter of “Conservative Republican candidates with Attention to Detail Deficit Disorder (ADDD),” conservative candidate for AD-70 Jerry Amante has a new brochure out touting his candidacy with a list of prominent endorsements.  And guess who’s on the list?  None other than disgraced and resigned former AD-72 assembly “Open” Mike Duvall (aka “Drippy”). Here’s…

Maybe Jerry (Amante) Can Host a Telethon for Tustin

Joe Wilson-like call for funds from his Pelosi-is-Stalin stunt.  Choi’s whiney Letter to the Editor is in this morning’s OC Register. But tell Choi what you really…

Dirty Water in Tustin

The New York Times reported today that about 20 percent of the nation’s water supply is dirty, and while the story certainly gets to the cleanliness of the water, there’s a different kind of dirty water story in Tustin where the Republican city council majority is in a quandry.  They need the vote of Democratic…

Make 2010 the Year of the Fox in CA AD-70

With voters in NY23 rejecting a hard right wing idealogue, perhaps voters in AD-70 can do the same next year and cast a ballot for Melissa Fox against two hard core right wingers who desire to out-conservative each other. A Right-Wing Extremist or Melissa Fox? In November of 2008, voters in our district chose Obama,…
