Egads! The well heeled liberal suburbanites of Beverly Hills (you remember - swimmin' pools, movie stars) are aghast that choo-choo trains with hordes of non-Whites aboard will run underneath their mansions as part of the route of Mayor V's Subway to the Sea. Joining the fight to make sure no such travesty happens is none other than County Stupidvisor Zev Yaroslavsky. Yikes.
The folks at that Griffith Park blog have something in common with Phil Jennerjahn. They don't like City Council candidate Tomas O'Grady. That alone may give any CD4 resident pause to take a look at O'Grady.
The City of Vernon has enough trouble being part of a collection of small, corrupt cities in Eastern LA County but there's an even bigger threat: Goofy Clowncilwoman Janice Hahn wants Los Angeles to annex the tiny city (with only 91 residents, all City of Vernon employees) that is rich in commerce and more taxes. Uh, no.
We ran this yesterday - Senator Barbara Boxer is illegally attempting to use LAUSD teachers to recruit students to work for her beleaguered campaign. Gay Patriot and Flap the Blogging Dentist have both picked up the story. This is nothing new however. I remember nearly 30 years ago when I was in the 12th grade our class being recruited by our teacher to attend an event for Jerry Brown, then running for the US Senate (he lost that race when everyone thought he was going to win).
Democrats and Republicans are finding comfort in various polls showing their candidates up and their opponents down but we've seen in past cycles that polls released just prior to election day don't always match the results. Speaking of Flap, as he points out, most of those polls are based on widely varying projections for turnout. So with garbage turnout models most of these polls are meaningless.
