Blog The Night Away Dum Dums

The LA Times is going to have post poll closing blogging going on at http://www.latimes.com/news/local/weblog/breakingnews/.

No cutting and pasting allowed!

Mayor Sam will be celebrating somewhere within the city. Doubt I will be warblogging but you never know.

Anyone know if Hahn has had a meltdown yet today?

What are the Hahnistas going to do when Jimmy goes down?

No Hahn meltdown today. None was needed. John and Ken were running his last meltdown all night yesterday.

FROM "SACRAMENTO NIGHTIES" earlier; fooled me two.

********

I can't say it's been fun OR educational; more like working a suicide hotline alone on a rainy Thanksgiving day. . .

Regardless of outcome, THIS blogger won't be back! If by chance I'm right and ADV® loses (again) - it's not a real "win" because he's still the "honorary" CM for CD14 -- plus, I don't enjoy gloating. Also, it's not a "game" to have the communities you love neglected so criminally back home.

If I'm wrong (sorry -- you can't call it "sour grapes" in advance. . .), and on July 1 Attention-Deficit Villaraigosa becomes the least-skilled mayor in the history of this great city, then have a blast gloating behind my "back" -- I won't give you the pleasure of my checking back to see.

But, THEN. . . look up the phrase "Pyrrhic victory" and memorize it well -- because based on every ounce of history and factual data, ADV®'s move into the Mayor's office would be the last "movement" the city sees for many years.

Retiring "SacramentoNighties" also means a few other "identities" are no more. If you hadn't started to suspect, then that explains why the ADV® con job has so easily fooled many here. Also checking out are:

"Anon-In-the-Know"

"Republican-Against-ADV"

. . . and a few recurring anonymous posters that I just think of as:

-- "ADV® is a pathological liar; prove me wrong" (and no one ever did)

-- The "80 INVISIBLE NEIGHBORHOOD WATCHES" taunter

-- ends every post with "HA!" derider

-- "no charge for that, Jim Hahn" (also true)

... plus a couple I can't really characterize with any specific.

L.A. DOES deserve better than James Hahn, but no city deserves what being "led" by ADV®'s incompetence would entail.

Hasta Muchachitas!

The Times' live group blogging has now posted its third consecutive blog entry by a Republican. How is this, in any way, representative of Los Angeles' current political culture?

It's like getting Jim Hightower, Ralph Nader and Amy Goodman to guide readers through the ins-and-outs of the Alabama Gubernatorial race.

9:09 pm; you should know Mr. Hahn should be up 10 or so points here to have any chance. He was up by 4 in the primary and finished 10 points behind Antonio. It looks more and more he is indeed going to be bounced out; deservedly so. We won't miss him.

Time to start the ADV lovers drinking game, how many times will they same the same, trite, uncreative phrases to gloat that they always do..like a couple have already started to. like going down, or get over it, or life will go on, or lights out, or kicking the (something) out of Hahn,. They really must all be city workers with bad cases of arrested development.

Look at where the votes are coming from -- largest numbers are from Eastside, so far (closest to downtown). Hahn's stronger areas are in the outer ring, further out. Only 5 percent of Harbor area is in vs. 22% in CD1 and 12% in 14.

OK Muchachos:

I just left the next Mayor of Los Angeles at dinner to get home and lead the blogging team.

As of 5:00 P.M. the exit voter polls had Antonio ahead 18%.

These numbers seem irreversible.

If there is a comeback by Jimmy, it will be the biggest since the ressurection.

Ain't gonnna get worse, gonna get better.

Jim Hahn should have won the absentees, as they are by far the most Republican group.

Saw lots of leading Republicans and lots of Valley folks at the V.I.P. reception.

The thing is, it is over.

Jim Hahn is DEAD MAN WALKING>

Hahn Blogging Team, look to Carrick for payment; he is the only one who scored on this election.

Dinner was great and now we will celebrate the first Latino Mayor by DOUBLE DIGITS.

Read it and weep...

That's funny, phony GOP guy, ADV IS a loser (even if he wins), and we can'tget him to move, at all. On, foward, anywhere. He's a regressive. A dinosaur.

Seriosuly I can get over it, I've lived in his district and know how to get things done without his help - the way youn have to. It's the rest of you that are in for a huge surprise.

It all comes to a halt now, just like dozens of projects in Cd14. Still sitting there, no movement, no plans, no hope.

First he clears house, then he leaves town. Nothing ........ ever .......... happens.

And guess what guys and gals, the votes from CD 3 and 12 are coming in and they are going for AV! Oh, wait, lookie here, CD-6 and 7 aren't in yet. Geez, I wonder who the Latinos in those districts are going for?

Looks like AV is going to get over 60% tonight.

Well, I wonder if Jim will show up at the MTA Committee meeting on Wednesday and Thursday, or will it be another day where Hahn was just too busy?

The 11:48 p.m. results: 59-40 AV. I think Hahn is waiting for the Lobbyist Vote to come in.
