Having it Both Ways

Double TalkLast Thursday I posted a quote from Cindy Miscikowski regarding the lease termination of Amerigas down in the port:
The truest quote I've read about this situation had to be delivered by Cindy Miscikowski to the Daily Breeze: "I don't know what the urgency was, and as we do know, there are a lot of changes a-coming."
Today I read this:
The Airport Commission voted Tuesday to approve a $750,000 payment to two outside law firms hired to defend legal challenges to the current LAX expansion plan. Today's 5-0 vote has to be approved by the City Council to take effect. A special session of the council is scheduled Wednesday to take up the matter. Most items approved by the airport panel take several days at least to become scheduled items on the City Council's agenda. Tomorrow's special session appears to have been set to allow outgoing Westside Councilwoman Cindy Miscikowski -- who will be replaced on Friday by Councilman-elect Bill Rosendahl -- to cast a vote on airport legal fees. She is expected to approve the expenditure.
What?
Aren't there are a lot of changes a-coming? So much for going out in style...

Why did Floridians give $179,000 to Villaraigosa?

What, Cindy is not entitled to a little bit of hypocrisy? Give her a break, it will be her last day at Council.
Don't forget, though, Ms. Goody Two Shoes ushered in through Council the LAX "consensus" plan, a plan that is not supported, among others, by a great majority of her Westchester constituency, a plan that will be torpedoed by the mayor-elect, with assist from her successor.

Right. It just depends on who has the largest army of lobbyists. Check out Dave Z.'s article in the Breeze listing the honor roll of Amerigas lobbyists.

Are any of these candidates communists?

Gruel? Huizar?

Villaraigosa staff is swimming in communism.

"An important step forward"
Author: Rosalio Muñoz

agree with the assessment that the most important differences in the Communist Party’s preconvention discussion center on the proposed adoption of the main strategic line of defeating the ultra-right section of transnationals and the Bush administration by building the broadest possible all people’s coalition led by labor allied with racially and nationally oppressed peoples, women and youth and others...

... As the re-assembling of the anti-Bush coalition has accelerated in recent weeks, more and more opportunities to participate meaningfully are opening up. During the lunch break at the East L.A. Villaraigosa for Mayor headquarters on Election Day, May 17, scores of volunteers were reading the PWW edition I had handed out. We all celebrated together at the victory party that night...

In September 2004, the Neighborhood Council in Westchester handed Cindy her her head when they voted against her "Consenus Plan." Cindy was in the room to witness the unaninmous roll call vote.

Bill Rosendahl and Antonio Villaraigosa, Westchester is counting on you to stop Hahn's crazy LAX expansion plan.

Look, you lost. Now get over it!

Bill Rosendahl is going to deliver. He promised to kill LAX Expansion and he will! Friday can't come soon enough.

It should be interesting to see Bill Rosendahl try to fulfill his many (and sometimes conflicting) campaign promises... including stopping the master plan. How did he plan to pull that one off? Good luck, Bill, because you're really going to need it...
