Hahn For Mayor... Of Tijuana???

So there has been alot of talk from some of the bloggers that Tony Villar is running on the Latino platform. Well, the last time I checked, Tony hadn't put out any ads or campaign materials like the ones that Hahn has.

So for the Hahnistas out there who still think that Hahn has portrayed himself as an All-American, I took a photo with my camera phone of a lawn sign that was placed along the public curbside to show you all how Hahn's campaign is portraying him (yes, they had "Paid For Hahn For Mayor" disclaimer at the bottom). As a proud American who has never missed an opportunity to speak my voice at the voting poll, I find it offensive that he is using the colors of the Mexican flag to outreach for a campaign in the United States. I wonder if Hal Netkin, Walter Moore, and Doug McIntyre have anything to say about this?

So now that we have evidence that Hahn is campaigning as if he's Pancho Villa, and that his camp is creating campaign material that has colors of the country just south of the U.S., is it safe to say that Hahn thinks Los Angeles is part of Mexico, and not United States??? I think he might be watching Channel 62 more than he does ABC7.

AV chooses to be whatever you want him to be for the right price. In L.A. he might be the invisible man, but in Florida, he markets himself as Latino, Hispanic, etc. He is whatever you want him to be for the right price. BTW, you can't believe anything this man says, he lies and flip flops constantly. His answers are in repetition mode and sounds as if he just memorized what to say when a certain noun is mentioned by the journalists. He is the CARDBOARD CANDIDATE.

Do you still believe that Antonio cares about the Latino Community? Have you been asleep as not to witness what he has not done for the Latino community? Come on, he has done everything for the people who have money. He is the new type of democrat, one who doesn't give a crap if you don't have money to shower him with. He is worse than any other by using his race to gain votes by brainwashing those fellow latinos that are letting themselves become brainwahsed by him. He is no authentic latino candidate.

You guys are so hung up on the colors of the signs, pathetic. Why don't you get wild and crazy about people demolishing signs of opponents. What happened to democracy, that little white minivan full of thugs didn't care, they tore up those signs faster than they were put up. I laughed when I witnessed this. I said, "These individuals feel so threatened by a sign that they resort to tearing it up." The mental capability of these individuals must be limited. We are not in Mexico, we are in America. I drive through other cities, Alhambra, Pasadena, West Covina, and there are elections from time to time. I do not witness thugs taking down the signs. I see the opposite, I see more signs put up by all opponents in a fair and democratic manner. I'm beginning to realize that L.A. residents need a long time to grow up, especially the Antonio Villaraigosa volunteers in the North East Los Angeles.

Why don't you guys chill out?

The LA Times poll appears to track the private tracking polls we've been watching for weeks.

We've been saying that the election is about 10 to 12 points, and here we are at 11 points.

I'm not sure we stay there, but it seems pretty hard for Carrick and Kam to spin around a 10 point deficit.

Wardlaw, if you are still around, how about a Reiner move? If Jim withdraws gracefully now, at least the awful numbers can be attributed to his withdrawal rather than Carrick's and Kuwata's inability to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. Tough assignment, what, with Stein, Edwards, Dowie and Wong hanging on his neck.

I'll say one thing; in all the years I've been watching, I don't think I've ever seen an incumbent portray himself as the candidate of change. Gotta hand it to you, Bill, that was some strategy.

If it had worked, I have no doubt you'd be up getting awards for cleverness at the eend of the year.

As it is, it is but another way to spend a lot of illegally acquired campaign money on your fees and those of other consultants. Bet you got that buffoon Cadell really cheap, huh?

Happy Trails, to you...

So, with one week to go, it looks like Jimmy's poll showing him in front is going to stand up. I am hoping Julie Butcher thinks so, and plunks in the rest of the treasury.

I hope lying Tony feel free to break whatever deals he made with those two bitter losers, since they're not doing him much good.

Gee, seems those attack ads ar really helping Antonio. He move up in polls.
LA Times....I have serious concerns about Mr. Villaraigosa's character," said Northridge teacher Andrea Burman, 37, an independent. "For him to accuse Hahn of financial corruption just seems hypocritical."

...the poll shows that Hahn has made inroads against Villaraigosa with relentless assaults on his character and background.

A quarter of likely voters say that they are less likely to support the councilman because of his 1996 effort to win early release from prison for Carlos Vignali, a cocaine trafficker whose father had given campaign money to Villaraigosa. ….A majority of likely voters says Villaraigosa "flip-flops" or changes what he says according to his audience. San Pedro sculptor Annie Hosch, 39, a Democrat, said Villaraigosa seems to "cater to whatever community he's stumping in.".....……"I just don't trust him," she said, echoing a central accusation of the Hahn campaign…
Antony Wyse, 44, said ....Villaraigosa "plays the race card when it's convenient for him" and would do so "when it comes to Hispanic gangs." …..Yet Hahn has eroded Villaraigosa's support among nearly every major voter group. Most strikingly, Hahn has wiped out the double-digit lead that Villaraigosa held among African Americans and Valley voters in the poll last month

Mayor Sam coming out with the old color trick. Nothing wrong with the colors, it is the message that is sticking. Latinos in the eastside value their word more than anything, probably because they don't have much of anyhting else. A handshake and your word is worth gold. And at this point, Hahn's word is worth much more than Tony. But Tony does have some color to him - that big yellow stripe runing down his back.

For years Tony and Parke have been storing away millions when they could have used that to developed a solid Latino base for Tony - an undefeatable Latino base. But Tony was too busy trying to be Jewish while Parke was to busy trying to keep those same Mexicans away from his neighborhood. Parke, your going to blow it again. In order for Tony to win he had to be ahead by at least 20 points by now. You should have spent your money shoring up your Latino base instead of using that same money to show L.A. that you weren't really that much of a Mexican. Your phonetic signs are just showing the rest of L.A. that you are in fact Mexican and in 2005 - that is going to cost you the election, great strategy!

WILL THE REAL ANTONIO VILLARAIGOSA PLEASE STAND UP?

Antonio Villaraigosa wants to be Mayor of Los Angeles. Do
citizens of Los Angeles know who he is? They should read on.

Villaraigosa was chairman of a chapter of MEChA (Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan) -- revolutionary, seditious student wing of AZTLAN (reconquista separatist movement).

Villaraigosa was president of the Southern California American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

Mexi-Marcha DC - 1996

Villaraigosa rants at the Million Mexican March on DC, 1996

Villaraigosa was president of "Third World Coalition" at UCLA.

Villaraigosa was the ONLY California elected official to join the Latino March on Washington, D.C., in 1996 demanding free education through college for illegal aliens, free medical care for illegal aliens, $7 per hour minimum wage with rights to union membership for illegal aliens, and another massive amnesty for illegal aliens.

Villaraigosa demands free prenatal care for illegal aliens -- with publicly funded Medi-Cal.

Villaraigosa supports every Assembly bill that supports illegal aliens, including protected status as in AB-407.

Villaraigosa gives speeches in Latino barrios claiming Congressional welfare reform was an attack on Latinos.

Traveled to Mexico to personally thank then President Zedillo for his influence on the killing of Prop. 187, the ballot measure passed in California to deny public benefits to illegal aliens -- Villaraigosa said, "I say President Zedillo had great impact in defeating Proposition 187."

Addressed a joint session of the California Legislature with Zedillo IN SPANISH (both are fluent in English) and forced the cadenced Chicano Power handclap into the microphone, signaling THAT language and THAT culture will predominate in California.

He sought a pardon for convicted drug dealer Carlos Vignalli

HE HELPED BRING THE POWER DISASTER TO CALIFORNIA

HE IS SOFT ON CRIME

VILLARAIGOSA WELCOMES MEXICO'S INFLUENCE ON CALIFORNIA LAW

VILLARAIGOSA SHOULD RUN FOR PUBLIC OFFICE IN MEXICO

MEAT, repeating your bogus predictions won't make them come true, but here's one's you might try...

Click your heels together and say "there's no place like home" - 3 times, and you'll be whisked back to Kansas, little girl.

If pure repetition worked, your boy woudln't be slipping fast (with all those boring, repeat ads), he really WOULD have an 81 percent approval rating (somewhere...HA!), and there really would be 80 (invisible) neighborhood watches created by the absentee himself, while visiting D.C??.

But it's all bogus, so repetition is just annoying, not productive.

Repeat this, however, because you;re going to need it.

"Hahn cheated, ADV should have won. Hahn cheated, ADV should have won. Hahn cheated, ADV should have won."

MEAT,

What you Tony Lovers/Truth Haters conveniently leave out of all these polls is the seldom mentioned, but always there, the dreaded race factor. This variable can skew percentage points by double digit figures. Parke knows this, that's why he can't sleep at night. This is America's dirty little secret that usually emerges in a race where a white candidate is facing a formidable challenger of color. (can't really call Tony a person of color because he forgot what color he was long ago and now readily adopts the color of his audience). Once this taboo subject can no longer be ignored - usually after the white guy defeats the challenger of color despite all the polls and predictions - people will talk about it for years to come.

All sorts of anaylsis, conjectures and theories will pop up, but only one is the truth, when white folk are polled, they don't tell the truth. "Closet racists" can't bring themselves to tell a pollster "anyone but the -nigger- beaner-spic-wetback-lateeeno" (take your pick) but this is what they are thinking and in the privacy of their voting booths, this is how they are going to vote.

This phenomena started occuring right around the 80's when overt racism was frowned upon. Thanks to the Cosby Show, racism took on a more discrete, but just as sinister, subtle tone.

It first manifested itself in the '82 Bradley - Deukmejian race. East coast newspapers even declared Bradley the winner because white folk still couldn't bring themselves to show their true feelings when they lied to exit pollers. It reared it's ugly head again in North Carolina when Jesse Helms barely beat a Black challenger, in Chicago when Daly Jr. took power again, in New York when Dinkins got dunked, and most recently, even in liberal mecca San Francisco in their last mayoral election. In fact, Parke was even party to a similar race when Lee Baca could only get 60% against a dead white guy.

Tony may have won some white people over early on but their support was by no means unconditional. They were looking for a reason - any reason - to vote for the white guy. And like a Moscow snowstorm, "FloridagGate" emerges to stop the Tony blitzkrieg dead in its tracks. You almost had it Parke, but that brass ring is just out of your grasp again. You need to upgrade to a smarter Mexican because Tony certainly isn't the cream of the crop.

I have been around a long, long time. I have seen a lot of elections. This one is OVER.

All that is left is the mudslinging and the noise.

The noise is already so loud that nothing can be heard above the din.

Unless they catch Antonio Villaraigosa with a dead girl or a live boy, and have a video tape of him confessing, it is OVER.

So, here's what happens:

Hahn gives a nice concession speech and the City gets geared up to rotate the rascals.

Hahn goes back to San Pedro and baby sits the kids, like he likes to do anyway. His pensions will take care of him, except for the suits for payment of campaign debts. MOnica gets the rest.

It is a Spring Cleaning of sorts.

The City may get a breather from the Union control while they fight it out to see who sits in Miguel's seat. Antonio says "No" to them for a little while, then caves in.

All is right with the world.

The Grand Juries finally return the indictments and the trials drag on into 2010 or so, then eveyone pleads guilty to some plea bargain and it is forgotten.

Antonio will either turn this town around or flop.

Life goes on.

And then we die.

It ain't so bad.

Some of us get to come back now and then, right Sam and Bull?

It's been fun.

If I was handling the Hahn campaign I would make the following commercial with these scenes:
Scene 1: Very hardcore looking, multiple tattooed gang members harassing a family in the park. The police show up to try and do something to protect the family only to be stopped by AV who shows up in time to protect the gang members.
Scene 2: A sleazy, unshaven old man is observing some kids playing on the swings in the park. He pulls out a handful of candy and heads over to the kids. Next you see him walking away holding a little girls hand as she licks a candy sucker. A close up of the man's shirt reveals a button that reads "Vote For Antonio V. for mayor".
Scene 3: Group of L.A.P.D. uniformed officers are with Antonio shooting an endorsement commercial. The director yells, cut! That's a wrap! As the officers walk away the camera zooms in on the back of the officers collars to reveal "Acme Costume Rentals" as these are not real L.A.P.D. officers but non-union actors.
Cut to Mayor Hahn shooting his commercial with the real L.A.P.D. officers endorsing him.
These three commercial scenes will have a tremendous impact. The commercials about Antonio taking Miami money are burnt out and nobody cares anymore. The voters know ALL politicians take questionable campaign contributions and only give it back when they are caught like AV just did. I suggest the Hahn campaign concentrate on getting some new
hard hitting commercials that will resonate with the
undecideds otherwise he and all on his staff are going to be looking for work come next Wednesday morning
