Mayor Sam's Hotsheet for Tuesday

"Oh no not Parks!" I almost thought this was a joke. Walter Moore posts a blog item with a clip of a Bernard Parks for Supervisor autodialer message. At the beginning of the message Bitter Bernie talks about a serious issue facing the County - the price of postage stamps! Walter makes a good point with Janice Hahn chasing alligators and roosters, Jan Perry at war with McDonalds and former motorcycle cop turned Clowncilman Denny Zine making the world safe for Britney Spears that there isn't a whole hell of a lot of leadership in LA.

Now that gay marriage has been approved by the California Supreme Court, Los Angeles County is expecting a deluge in marriage license requests. "It's going to be a busy spring," Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky told the Whittier Daily News. "The Supreme Court made sure of that."

An anonymous poster on a post about Laurette Healey's alleged shady finances takes to task people who post anonymously on blogs. Boy, now who do think posted THAT?

When voting for Judges in next month's primary make sure you don't vote for an alleged Klansman. Bill Johnson, running for a local judgeship, "under the name James O. Pace, he wrote the racial exclusion as a proposed amendment to the U.S. Constitution and a 1985 book supporting it. Under the name Daniel Johnson, he ran a losing race for Congress in Wyoming in 1989 with a Ku Klux Klan organizer as his campaign manager." according to the Los Angeles Times.

Zuma Dogg gets big props from a Silcon Valley blog. The writer of Letters from Silicon Valley posts "Zuma Dogg gave me the inspiration to look harder and seek information."

Free Associated Press reports that Republican Presidential candidate John McCain has launched a website in Spanish, "The Straight Habla Express." On the site McCain details endorsement from Latino leaders such as Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa who said "Carrera y oculta! McCain es el diablo!*"

* hopefully you realize Free Associated Press is a joke blog.

I had the same thought too Sam at first I thought someone was doing an impersonation of Parks like the Gloria Morena call of several years ago. What the hell does postage stamps have to do with being County Supervisor?

Ok folks this is a perfect reason why Bitter Bernie should NOT be elected supervisor. He was the worst Chief and had so many corrupt friends promoted interesting the media isn't reporting all of that baggage. Folks remember RAMPART that was the dirty dealings of management with Bitter Bernie trying to cover it up.

That should tell anyone voting for Parks that the guy is clueless as clueless can be. With EVERYTHING going on in this county from out of control gangs, illegals, loss of jobs, poor infrastructure, etc. This idiot is talking about the price of stamps?!?

Villaraigosa: "I am the Neighborhood Council Mayor"


But of course, this was a result of a typo on his cue cards. What he really meant to say was:

9:49 Damn, you guys on Mayor Sam's blog caught us again. STICK TO THE SCRIPT, TONY.

I just can't leave anything to those junior handlers downtown. Plus he can't can't tell one cloying community group from another. In fact some months back Hizzoner went ad-lib on us a LIONS CLUB luncheon and told them:

"Just as soon as we get this elephant thing squared away at the Zoo, you guys are next -- I promise!"

Fortunately, he was late in the program and most of the Lions and Lionesses were to drunk to notice by then.

Oh, and speaking of misfires, our apologies to any of you just getting to work after being backed up in GRIDLOCK on Sunset this morning.

We were having a rush-hour televised press conference. About . . . ENDING RUSH-HOUR GRIDLOCK!

HA! (Now that's funny, I don't care who you are).

It's nice to see that Villar is making a joke about the elephants. One of his campaign promises was to get them out. What has he done? Nothing. Ruby went to PAWS, yes, but Billie the lonely male is still there, and stupid Tom LaBonge is hell bent on bringing even MORE here to the tune of 40 million dollars. But Villar LIED, and it's just another example of his failed leadership. I hope the next Mayor actually does what he promises, not just sucks up to the Clintons and Broads.

Bernie Parks and Jan Perry have the most fee waivers of anyone -- almost $3million between the 2 of them. And for what, who's ever heard of these events citywide? USC for Parks?

Garcetti and some others have high numbers but that includes city-wide events like Oscars or the LATimes/ UCLA Book Festival, Santa Parade, that happen to be in their neighborhoods.

There's talk of splitting waivers into 2 categories: citywide like these, and local block parties/ ethnic events. (The Mexicans will argue they must be in the "citywide" category, as does the shill for Huizar who does just that here all the time, but they're NOT.)

Um, the little joke from "Parque" about the joke the Mayor supposedly made -- was a little joke itself. Probably meant to play off confusing neighborhood councils with fake neighborhood watches. (And real lions, versus benevolent organizational lions).

AV didn't say that, and wasn't "making a a joke about the elephants" at the zoo (and probably wasn't even at a Lion's Club meeting).

Oh, and "Parque" isn't really with the mayor's entourage, either. He's a parody character that's supposed to sound like the name of one of Villaraigosa's election mouthpieces.

And, hate to break it to you, but the real Sam Yorty (Mayor Sam), is still dead.

But I saw Zuma Dogg at City Hall last week, and I'm sorry to say he apparently is actually a real person.

I wouldn't bet any real money on it, though.

Villaraigosa: "I am the Neighborhood Council Mayor"

I almost pee pee in my pants reading that. Yeah, he's so good with Neighborhood councils that at the South LA Gathering on Gang Violence this past Saturday that was organized by a dozen NC's it had to be the lowest turn out ever. Maybe there were 75 people at best and word has it Villaraigosa was embarrassed to have to speak to such a little crowd. Mind you there are 1,500 reps citywide. When Mayor Hahn was in office at all the Neighborhood Council gathering you would get over 1,000 reps. Since Villaraigosa has been in office you never see those numbers. They can't stand him or DONE

Yeah, I imagine the S. L A Conference on Gangs would prefer the Hahns: throw a little money around to active gangbangers and let them say they're working for the government while dealing drugs and calling shots -- funny, how that would make someone prefer those Airhead Hahns. Are they the ONLY kind of white people we can get to run for Council these days?

Along with Tom LaBong and Rosendahl, they ARE the Clowncil.

Throw in "I'm going to save you a penny on future postage stamps" Bitter Bernie, and "Don't call Your Brothers and Sisters Dogs and Ponies! Stop eating French Fries!" Perry, TJ in the Hills Reyes, Zorro Marxist AlarCON, Festival Figurehed Hueezee, "Get Out of My Face, You Troll Bitch!" Cardenas, and "Will Britney Notice ME Now?" Zine, they make quite a reality show.

If only these idiots didn't have the power to keep raising our taxes, we could sell the show to Comedy Central. Even without the complete idiocy of zuma, matt and the Babbling Ninnies of Van Nuys.

I think I saw the "Babbling Ninnies of Van Nuys" in concert at the Roxy years ago.

They were okay, but not as good as the "Barking Gadflies of Glassell Park" the week before.

Bernie may be Bitter and as gthe regarious as LaBong is introspective BUT Ridley-Thomas will continue to spend our money on unions like water.

Earl Ofari Hutchinson reports in his Editorial for the DN of 5/17 that unions have given Ridley-Thomas $2.5M so far and are raising another 1.5M, leaving no doubt they expect to BUY him. With our tax dollars, whether we live in that district or not.
