Rocky Can't Beat Back the Moonbeams


The Field Poll, California’s most authoritative independent poll, shows Jerry Brown with a 41 point lead over Rocky Delgadillo in the race for California Attorney General. The San Francisco Chronicle today called Brown’s lead “commanding”. Among Northern California voters, Brown has a blow-out 67 point lead. This latest poll confirms 3 earlier surveys and shows Brown--with the June primary just weeks away--gaining substantial momentum.

In addition to this commanding lead, Jerry Brown’s endorsers now include: Al Gore, Dianne Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi, Gray Davis, Hilda Solis, Howard Berman, Ellen Tauscher, Diane Watson, Lynn Woolsey, Sam Farr, Doris Matsui, Yvonne Burke, Gloria Molina, Martha Escutia, Dean Florez, Mike Machado, Nell Soto, Tom Torlakson, Mervin Dymally, Ira Ruskin, Rudy Bermudez, Ed Chavez, Fran Pavley, Joe Nation, John Burton, Hannah-Beth Jackson, Mayors Gavin Newsom and Miguel Pulido, Ira Reiner, Alice Huffman, The Sierra Club, California League of Conservation Voters, California Nurses Association, United Farm Workers, UAW, California Faculty Association, California School Employees Association, CWA, SEIU, UFCW 588, AFSCME, Statewide Teamsters, PORAC, IBEW Locals 100, 180, and 340, Plumber and Pipefitters Local 409, San Francisco Building and Construction Trades Council, California Democratic Council (CDC), Alice B Toklas Democratic Club, San Francisco Young Democrats, Alameda County Democratic Lawyers Club, California Association of Police Chiefs, Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs, San Mateo County Deputy Sheriffs, Fresno Police Officers Association, Deputy Sheriffs’ Association of Alameda County, Deputy Sheriffs’ Association of Santa Clara County, San Diego Deputy Sheriffs, San Francisco and Oakland Police Officers Association, Pasadena Police Officers Association, Sonoma County Law Enforcement Association, San Bernardino County Safety Employees Association, State Coalition of Probation Organizations, Sheriff Plummer, Sheriff Laurie Smith, Police Chief Tucker, Police Chief Word, District Attorney Kamala Harris.

The Field Poll has operated continuously since 1947 as an independent and non-partisan public opinion survey. During its long history, The Field Poll has acquired a national reputation as a consistently reliable and authoritative source of public opinion trends in California. Since 1984 the average deviation between the actual percentage vote for the winning candidate and his/her support in the final poll has been just 1.7 percentage points.

The People of the State of California deserve better than Jerry "Governor Moonbeam" Brown.

He is a fraud. It you can believe it, he knows less about being a lawyer than Rocky.

It will be a sad day when he becomes A.G.

Put your money on Chuck Poochigian; a solid guy who has a great reputation as a problem solver and a lawyer-like person.

Jerry's baggage will sink him in the General Election.

Get real, Pooch lover. The "Pooch" is WAY outside the mainstream, alongside his idol--George Bush.

And Rocktard is pathetic; most of his self-authored biography is a banal rehash of a B movie.

So you believe a Bay Area report on a Bay Area politician's chances for AG? Mayor Sam: How about some critical journalism, rather than reprinting Brown's press releases?

This poll was done before the television campaign commenced. Just watch Old Baldy try to explain how he was transformed from Governor Moonbeam to Kojak. It's a miracle!

It is sad how Delgadillo's consultants pump him up to get their fees. No serious political operative or analyst believes Rocky has better than a 3% chance of winning.

Didn't the Mayor PROMISE that he would eliminate the appearance of impropriety that stems from appointing and hiring Lobbyists to key City positions?
Yes he did!
So why the hell did he hire Cecilia Estolano to head up the CRA?
She is a Real Estate Attorney and a REGISTERED LOBBYIST at the City. Won't she be steering CRA money and projects to her professional buddies and to her former fellow attorneys at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher?
Antonio, you're so hypocritical. How could you hire a lobbyist to such a sensitive position. Ask her to step aside now, before she starts fundraising for you.

The dirty little secret is that Rocky only practiced law for one year as an associate at O'Melvny. I know, I was there. He didn't even have an office at the law firm. Instead, he spent his time getting paid by the law firm while working for Rebuild LA.

I hear there may be more "little secrets" in the b movie. For example, was John R Delgadillo really named after a fighter? Didn't Rockard win that fight in 37? Or am I. like so many on his team, just fantasizing?

If you voted for AV, you only have yourself to blame. So before you go blaming Antonio and Laura Chick-n-shit, go take a good long look in the mirror.

That is why in the last election I voted Hahn. He wasn't any better but at least he didn't try to hide his bullshit.

It's the difference between a pimp (Hahn) and Low life hustlers and whores(Villaraigosa/Chick). A Pimp will give it to you straight no bullshit. While a hustler/whore (AV/Chick) will try to pull the classic Bait and Switch to keep themselves from being accountable.

Well, I am a Valley NIMBY. And where is the porn capital of the world headquarted? In the Valley!

But that is besides the point. How is calling AV a low-life hustler Slander. I'm telling the honest truth. Hustlers pull bait and switch with the people they try to rob. And he's pulled one on the city.

Now President Rocktard claims he's just in the race to give the people a choice. We should not underestimate his stealth and cunning.

Let's not forget the big Harvard game, where the team was losing by 41 points and barely eked out a victory when Rocky made 6 touchdowns in the fourth quarter. Or that time when he singlehandedly dispatched a gang of 41 ninjas who raided the offices of O'Melveny in search of Michael Jackson's underwear. Or that time when he beat Apollo Creed to a pulp in that movie . . .

His name is Delgadillo, not Brown. And he is getting his butt kicked.

An old, dried-up, bald-headed Kojak impersonator, or a young, handsome, robust leader of the future. That's the choice in Moonbeam v. Rocky.

Too bad Rockard is so far behind. For me, it's ABB--Anyone But Brown! Ugh! Barf! he should get a life, a real job and stop sucking his supper off the public --

and best of all, if Rockard wins -- stranger things have happened in Cal politics-- then Jack Weiss gets to be CA and off the Council. that alone is worth voting for RD!

Regarding matters tonsilary in nature:

The difference between Brown and Delgadillo is that Brown boldly bares his pate while Rocktard has resorted to messy and expensive plugs and injections in an effort to hide his baldness from the electorate.

In a politician, I prefer honesty. So do most Democratic voters, according to the Field Poll.

The words "Jerry Brown" and "honesty" have never been associated with one another.

He is a lying, two faced political animal, who could not hold a real job.

He's been living off his father's name for years, and it is time for him to come to Jesus.

Get ready for the major upset of 2006. Rocky is going to roll over the duplicious scumbag.

By the bye, he never has practiced law, except a short stint at Tuttle & Taylor where they gave him his walking papers within months. Rocky has practiced more law than Jerry Brown. And, let us not forget Rose Bird!!!

Yeah, those Field Poll results show that everybody's still REALLY MAD at Jerry over Rose Bird. Tell Rocktard my 99 cents is in the mail.
