Lunch Time Missives: Schwarzenegger and Brokaw, a "dialog", "Entrepreneur for Mayor?" and an example of "bloggin myopia"

Oh the Glory!!!.......to Tom Brokaw on yesterday's "Meet the Press".

Nothing these days brings more glee to this blogger than a "verbal take down" of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, aka the "KENNEDY REPUBLICAN".
So far gone are those heady days in 2003 after the Recall of Gov. Gray Davis, when a foreign concept called "fiscal restraint" was reintroduce into the Sacramento Capital vocabulary.
Now in 2008, it has come to this.
Brokaw: "When you ran for governor in 2003, you ran as a fiscal conservative who would change the system, who would bring business-like techniques," Brokaw said. "Now, you are facing a $15-billion deficit here in California. Unemployment is running at about 6.8%; you've got the worst housing crisis since the Great Depression. If you were the CEO of a public company, the board would probably say, 'It is time to go.' "
"Kennedy Republican": joked, "Are you always this positive?"
"Brokaw": "Before you came in, governor, you said the spending was out of control," he said. "Your rate of increase in spending is about the same as your predecessor, Gov. Gray Davis. It has grown at about, what, 34% since you took office."
"Kennedy Republican": "You've been around long enough to know that the numbers are misleading. We have paid off a lot of debt. . . . I am very proud that we paid off a lot of debt and that we got the economy going again."
"Brokaw": "It appears the people have some real questions about your leadership," Brokaw said. "Your approval rating has gone from what, 60% in December down to about 40% recently. It is tough to govern under those circumstances."
"Kennedy Republican": "Not at all. I'm having a great time."
.......and the rest of Californians???
****Profile of a "Politically Astute" Entrepreneur****
Nice profile on a L.A. based businessman in the "OLD GREY HAG ON SPRING STREET...for sale" business section.
Much has been made in the past about this person with the nickname of "Magic", but why regurgitate all this now unless you need to raise your profile for a "future foray into politics"?
****"Puff Roderick", what were you reading??****
It must be the rarified air on the heights of Mar Vista Hill that would cause the "WWG" to draw this conclusion from yesterday's Daily News story on Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.
Rick Orlov interviews the mayor on the start of his fourth year, talks to a few observers, and concludes "for the first two years, he seemed to do no wrong...These days the affair is over, the divorce is quietly moving ahead, and Villaraigosa, after nearly nine months of maintaining a relatively low profile, has steadily begun re-emerging into the public spotlight. And even if he no longer has the same rabid support that he enjoyed in 2005, he is once again energized with the prospect of what lies ahead, as he looks to his own re-election campaign." DN (plus Orlov column on fundraisers)
......and for a good laugh, link to "Orlov column" and regale in the details of City Attorney Rocky "Rocktard" Delgadiilo's thoughts about his "political future" (insert your favorite laugh track)

How does one "rarify air" you unceasingly insipid and buffoonish blogging troglodyte?

Do you patent it? Release it in limited air-ditions? Seal it up in massive mayonnaise jars so no one else can breathe it?

No one who posts things with this many insults to the basic mechanics of the English language should take on other bloggers for their communication skills.

You didn't just fall off a turnip truck, Red Sput, you ARE a turnip.

Rocky for State Attorney General! OMG, I'd like to see that race -- just to watch him finally get smeared so bad he'll never try to rise again. -- Although his office has actually files some gang injunctions lately. Still, they've hired outside law firms for every major case and lost them anyway, and his hundreds of attorneys and thousands of staff are poorly utilized. His giving away the city to Clear Channel/CBS Outdoors, his underhanded benefactors who are suing the city as a result, is more than duplicitous. Go Laura, check out that numskull's waste and fraud.

Red Sput, the "rarify air" must be over in Boyle Heights, too, because Magic Johnson has been listen in the Times among the Mayor's supporters and fundraisers. He ain't running, either. So that leaves zuma dogg, Walter Moore and maybe Caruso -- whose dad was jailed for fraud back in 58, in connection with his used car dealership he ran as "the Great Caruso." Apparently the whole city sighed in relief when he was sent to chill in the slammer. That's how he got his money. And believe it or not, there are a lot of people who think a guy building the same mall over and over everywhere, adding to congestion for his profit, isn't the man with a "vision for the future" they're looking for. So you'll be stuck with the Midget Mayor until he runs for another office. If Rocky does run for ATtorneyGeneral, he could take him there - ha, ha, that would be something, two of the dumbest legal minds going at mortal combat. Nah, the Midget Mayor will be with us for at least a few more years.

Time for one of the other Mayor Sam's bloggers to rise up and defend Red Snot's illiteracy as "not important" as long as he says stuff they agree with (but sometimes you can hardly tell what he's saying).

Everyone feels bad for the kid who always wears the dunce cap.

"poor Marvin, his mom dropped him on his head when he was little"

But they always leave the end off - "...she did it on purpose."

At least Mayor Sam hires the handicapped, so Red Snot has something to do when he's not bagging groceries.

That typo, anyway, has been fixed. Now if Mayor Sam can just afford to hire some 9th grader from an LAUSD high school to follow Red Spot around the blog fixing his typos day and night, there might be a chance for respectability.

But, you missed:

"was reintroduce"

"and the rest of Californians"

More cut-and-past others words from the literate people you criticize, and less of your own, Red, and you won't have this problem. (It's pretty amazing that immigrant "Ah-nold" handles English better than than you).

Gee...already a Villaraigosa idiot posting crap about Caruso. As if the gang banger cholo Mayor doesn't have more in his closet that hassn't even come out yet. Jealous, insecure loser who posted about Caruso's dad that happened over 50 YEARS AGO ASSHOLE...

You're just mad and hoping CARUSO doesn't run cause he would whip Antonio's little, scrawny ass. He has enough money and doesn't have to have fundraisers with corrupt people like Antonio is and giving them payback favors. CORRUPT

The insecure nobodies are those on this blog who assume anyone who posts about what a loser family Caruso comes from, and how he got his money dirty, works for the Mayor. Pitiful.

Who would want some arrogant jerk who would try to buy himself the election for his own ego and his son's, while having done nothing but build one homogenous mall after another. Maybe that's fine in Glendale where it put them on the map as a high-end destination, but let him try it in Sherman Oaks and Brentwood. He might become Mayor of Glendale or Glendora, however.

Is Rocktard actually serious? Doesn't he understand that his political career is finished?

Every political consultant from San Diego to Sacramento has files and files detailing Rocky's idiocy.

He would even lose to Chuck Poochigian.
