Republican Party Of L.A.'s Latest Mailer
Then she asserted that "all you have to do is look at the immmigration issue to see" the error of people who say "there isn't a dime's worth of difference between Republicans and Democrats." Well, okay, maybe there's a dime's worth of difference, but you can't even buy used gum for ten cents any more. But here's the part that really got me:
"The same 'leaders,' who think criminals should have more rights than victims, support amnesty for illegal immigrants."
"This is why electing more Los Angeles County Republicans who will stand up for what is right is so important, and why your support of the Republican Party of Los Angeles County is critical right now."

"We need to elect more state and local Republicans to office from Los Angeles County who will stand up for what is right and tackle the tough issues.
"And we need more dollars to support their campaigns."
What a beautiful and stirring pitch, except for the fact that it has no bearing whatsoever on reality. The Republican Party of L.A. did absolutely nothing to help elect ANY Republican mayor of the second-largest city in America last time around. On the contrary, Linda Boyd's husband actively campaigned for Democrat James Hahn. Nor, as far as I can tell, has the local party tried to elect anyone else who opposes illegal immigration, whether state or local. One James Gilchrist comes to mind.
So, tell you what, Linda: half of L.A.'s City Council seats are up for grabs in March 2007. Let's see how much your cocktail party -- er, political party -- actually does to elect any Republicans, much less Republicans who vow to repeal Special Order 40. Then come back and ask for money.
