... and 8-year-old Tony Villar, watching Kennedy's first press conference, says "Mommy, that's what I want to do when I grow up!'

You want to be President?

NO, I want to be in front of CAMERA's. . . constantly!

Actually it's more like "No, I want to use my power to fuck beautiful chicks like Marilyn Monroe"

And with that I actually admire the little Cholo

Hey, AV can have all the chicks, and even some of the boys if he wants... if he'd just ZIP up his damn fly once in awhile and GET SOMETHING DONE beside posing for the cameras.

Shit, you'd think the past 7 months was the Golden Globes red carpet run.

L.A. Mayor Tapped to Give Bush Response

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa will give the Spanish-language response to President Bush's State of the Union address on Tuesday, Democratic congressional leaders announced.

Villaraigosa has been seen as a rising Democratic star since his election in May as the first Hispanic in 133 years to lead Los Angeles, the country's second-largest city. He will deliver his remarks from his Los Angeles office, said Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.

"Mayor Villaraigosa is working hard to increase economic opportunity and provide affordable and quality education for the people of Los Angeles," Reid and Pelosi said in a joint statement Wednesday. "As the first Latino mayor of Los Angeles in more than a century, we are proud to have his diverse voice within the party."

The Democrats' English-language response is being given by newly elected Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine.

===================================

Now I know the Democrats want to beat the Republicans in 2008 and trying to sway the Latino vote, but is it me or is this an attempt to get his face to a national audience when he runs for Governor.

Let's see, whose economy is in better shape -- U.S., or L.A.?

Let's see, whose "state" is in better shape -- U.S., or L.A.?

Why not just give the GOP a freebie; this "rebuttal" is debunked by the very resume of the speaker.

GW is twice the man AV is (he's twice as tall, and got twice the GPA -- at a much better school.

or as that other famous Demo was known for

"Nobody died because of Clinton's lies"

Dems may be horny but that hasn't killed their constituents.

How many hundreds of thousands (or millions) of innocent Iraqis died under Saddam while Bill Clinton was sitting by soiling Monica's blue dress and suggesting more useless"sanctions" -- which only served to starve even more innocents, which Saddam built more palaces with embezzled UN "food for oil" money.

Americans have always been willing to die in the hundreds and thousands in order to secure freedom for and save of the lives of millions and tens of millions elsewhere in the world. It's one of the things that makes us great.

All that was necessary for "evil to succeed" (as they say) under Clinton's watch was for him to "sit by" and get his rocks off on "company" time.
