Mayor Sam's Hotsheet for Wednesday

Senator Hillary Clinton gave a fine speech at the Democratic National Convention proving that the Democrats chose the wrong candidate.  The LA Times however made reference to the former Presidential candidate's fashion sense referring to the "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pantsuits."

A reader at Sam Yorty's America asks "Question: How will Sarah Palin do in a debate with Joe Biden? Answer: How many men watching will be aware that Biden is in the room?"

A delegate blogging live from the DNC writes that he saw Mayor Villaraigosa hanging around the lobby of the Sheraton Hotel Tuesday night; in the meantime Laura Chick gets into a dust-up with a Clinton delegate.

The campaign website for City Council candidate Paul Koretz is back up following a severe hack attack that took the site down for several days.  The hackers were sophsiticated enough to not leave any tracks and inflicted severe damage on the original site code.  One wonders if the Koretz campaign's web team had backed up the site?
 A slight blow to the nanny state.  A law by Senator Jack Scott to ban mylar balloons has been severely weakened by amendments.  So your kids' next birthday party is safe.

CAN WE ALL SAY "KARMA" What an asshole to take for granted he would speak and pretend to be somebody. His torrid affair and the lying, hurting his family has really hurt his him.

..Villaraigosa denies Denver snub; says he's working hard for Obama...Some speculated that the mayor's limited role at the convention was retribution for his support for Clinton during the primaries.

DENVER -- -- Far from center stage, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa spent the first day of the Democratic National Convention straining to speak over clattering dishes as he addressed a breakfast meeting Monday of the Florida delegation.

On the second day, Villaraigosa remained on the sidelines, as early Barack Obama supporters like Federico Peña, the former mayor of Denver, and Rep. Xavier Becerra of Los Angeles took the stage.

With no prime-time speaking slot or other major role at the four-day convention, one of the nation's best-known Latino elected officials has been relegated mostly to side events. He has filled the void by feverishly working crowds and the news media and appearing on cable's MSNBC and Fox News. He spoke to delegates from New Hampshire on Sunday, Florida on Monday and Minnesota and Texas on Tuesday.

You're such a dumbass, fat boy.

* "Sisterhood of the Travelling Pantsuits" was a joke that Hillary made herself in her speech. You should have watched it if you're going to write about it, dumbass.

* All this talk about "hot" candidates just makes you look more like a dumbass, a la Paris Hilton. We know you don't know much, but you should know better than to take your political cues from a pop tart.

* There's no way a pregnant woman would commit to a presidential campaign as VP -- unless she wants to abort her fetus. Pregnancy and extreme stress just don't mix. So stop with the "hot" prognostications for the Baked Alaskan.

* Biden is twelve years younger than McCain.

* Jindal will never be nominated for a national ticket in the GOP. Too many faithful Republicans would rather lock him in an internment camp or send him to Bangalore. GOP is the 99 and 44 one hundredths percent white party. Wake up.

Villar was relegated to sitting behind Bill Clinton...ain't it ironic? Hillary LOST because she went after the illiterate Mexican vote, and VILLAR is the symbol of Mexican illiteracy and stupidity!

Bill Clinton was stupidly called the 'first Black president' but he should have known better than to abandon his Black base in favor of a third world Mexicans! What the hell! Mexicans only make up about 9% of the vote...they're insignificant!

Hillary would be president next year if it had not been for the fatal mistake of going for the mexican vote...how stupid can you get????

McCain will be the next pres! The Dems are making such asses out of themselves...it's not even entertainment anymore...it's pathetic.

Hey Villaraigosa, you a-hole!

The LA Times has an article about your denying being snubbed by Obama for your incestuous relationship with the Clintons.

A fat here says your math sucks. Biden will be 66 in November. McCain will be 72 on Friday this week. 66 from 72 is 6 years younger.

And to think I spent summers in summer school taking math over.

Greetings from the far, far, far east!

Look you 7:59 dum dum. Biden is not "12 years younger than McCain."

Why oh why do you not do your research? Biden was born November 20, 1942. McCain was born August 29, 1936.

Does that look like 12 years to you? One doesn't need the great Haikula's advanced degree to do the math, but I'll do it for you.

It's 5 years. And Biden has been in the Senate LONGER than McCain.

C'mon Coffee Cakes. Obama chose the same ol', same ol'.

Your entire credibility is gone. I've gotta go. Higby, take the wheel of this runaway ship of dum dums!

Yes, Biden is younger than McCain.

However most parties also nominate the VP to be the odds-on favorite eight years later, so they have a better chance at continuing their reign in the White House.

That means if Obama wins 2 terms, their "next up" VP Biden will be two years older than McCain is now.

How's that for suicidal planning.

(And, yes, GW did the same damn thing with Cheney - and that's why the GOP screwed the pooch last time and had no 'favorite' for the party to fall in line behind easily). In this case, it actually worked out better, because a GW VP would have to run on Bush's record (like the Dems are trying to saddle McCain with now).

But knowing how hypocritical Democrats ALWAYS are about these things, I can guaran-damn-tee you that by then, 74-year-old Biden WON'T be too old to be president.

By the way - not that genetics is everything, but McCain's mother is 96 and still going strong including stumping for her son around the country the last 15 months.

I think 759 is about to have a Joe Biden aneurysm.

We KNOW Hillary called it that. Read the Times article before you shoot your wad.

Secondly as everyone else has pointed out McCain is NOT 12 years older than Biden - he's five and some change. However, he's served nearly twice as long in the Senate as McCain has.

By the way, when Joe Biden was first elected to the Senate, Barack Obama wasn't even in puberty yet.

Sarah Palin had her child 3-4 months ago. She is no longer pregnant.

The Republicans have nominated (and sometimes elected) non-whites all over the country but Democrats don't vote for them because they call them Uncle Toms or Coconuts. Ever hear of Michael Steele, Lynn Swann, JC Watts to name a few. The Republicans would DIE to have either or both Condoleeza Rice and Colin Powell as President and/or VP.

Jindal may not be chosen as VP this time but it's not because of his race. And at any rate, he's one of the keynote speakers at the RNC right before the VP nominee.

So come back next time when you have some of your facts straight.

Until then we have some very nice freeways for you to go play on.

Somehow I don't think that this race will be decided by the difference in ages between the Republican candidate for president and the Democratic candidate for vice-president. But I guess it's the kind of things people argue about when they're all through with the important arguments.

The race will be O-V-E-R if McCain selects Condi, Carly or Colin.

I've caught some clips of Carly speaking and she's breathtakingly impressive, as is Condi or Colin, even though Colin probably wouldn't accept.

Shit, I have GOT to get off of this blog for a few days, if only for some tanning.

Good morning Ladies and Gentlemen (removes hat and bows low with flourish):

Sunb? Did you say snub? (Looks around the room at sots) His Nibbs got snubbed? (Crew laughs) Well, this is, if you will, a first. For once His Nibbs got the snub end of the broomstick instead of the other 'way 'round. But let's not talk about that. Let's talk about something else, shall we. Yes, lets.

Here at home there appears to be some snubbing going on with respect to a certain dimming star. Those who would eagerly open up their pocket books (whispers) as they would their legs (speaks in normal voice again) are not as eager to do so at this juncture. Why is that, sots? (Sots have blank stare on their faces. Captain Jack motions for sots to lean in and listen.) Perhaps it is because them that do the delivering are not able to do so, savvy? (Strokes beard) I seem to recall saying something about a rudderless ship some time back, did I not? (Crew nods in agreement) Yes, I think I did. (Looks through spyglass at floundering ship) Well, she's righted but she's not sailing a true heading. (Sighs) Someone will have to go fetch her they will, savvy? I think that someone is Signore Garcetti for he appears to be the only one who cleans up well. Plus he has experience in the fleet. (Crew looks terrified) Calm yourselves, lads. The man has no time for the likes of us; not an appointment he'll grant us. (Crew calms down)

Oh, and Ms. Doll? We've noticed that you've been preoccupied with the goings on of old grumpy men as of late. Does that mean you find them attactive? (Peers into mirror and examines face.) Oh bugger, I'm not old. (Sighs) For as older men know, one of the greatest joys in older life is to play with dolls, savvy?

No doubt that McCain has to make a bold pick. No Mitt, Rob, et al. He either has to get some up and comer like Sarah or Bobby, a distinguished woman like Kay Bailey or Carly or someone different like Powell or Lieberman. Though each of those have problems.

Still something bold that fires up the base will do the trick.

AS a Democrat I was embarrassed watching last night. What a circus!!!! What the hell with the Hillary signs? What disrespect and bullshit. Only Hillary and Bill can make what use to be an historical event into a sham. They have divided and not conquered but shown the entire world how vindictive and resentful they are. Instead of taking defeat gracefully like a mature adult they ruined it with all their crap for all Democrats.

It's a different republican party today. Lots of the wing-nuts died. Why do you think McCain beat out wannabe wing-nuts like Romney (please don't pick him), true blue wing-nuts like Huckabee, et al. And McCain beat them handily, not a squeaker like Clinton and Obama.

I can't say for sure but don't be surprised if McCain goes non-traditional.

I'm watching some of these speeches at the DNC.

It's too bad my Democratic Party has gone off the deep end.

These speakers are using the same classism, hate and dividing tactics the Nixonistas did in the 60s and 70s.

I don't expect to see this level of hate at the RNC.

Message to the DNC: John McCain is NOT George Bush.

That's why we had to get rid of that other guy with the balanced budget, no new taxes, drop in crime, willing to make tough decisions......he was boring, right?

Excuse me if I don't pay much attention to "Mayor Sam's" political expertise, OK?

According to the Times quote, Antonio getting snubbed is partly cuz he was for Hillary, but also because Obama's people are sure they've got the Cal Latinos sewn up and don't have to campaign here.

It would be a nice shock for them if the Latinos voted for McCain instead.

No one group should be taken for granted every time -- including Hillary's women, or blacks for Obama. E.g., a black small business owner or those favoring immigration law enforcement would probably be better off with McCain.
