Los Angeles Politics Hotsheet for Tuesday

Round 8 of Ali-Foreman, the legendary "Rumble in the Jungle" in Zaire 1974. The younger and more powerful George Foreman was the aggressor throughout the first seven rounds while the older yet highly conditioned Muhammad Ali played rope-a-dope. Then, with Foreman punched out, Ali struck in the 8th round.

William Bradley , in an engaging piece at Huffpo, equates the Jerry Brown victory over Meg Whitman to the Ali-Foreman 1974 "Rumble in the Jungle" match in Zaire;

"...the dust is still settling on Brown's resounding landslide victory -- 54% to 41%, a margin of more than 1.2 million votes over billionaire Meg Whitman -- absolutely shattering the biggest spending non-presidential campaign in American history. In the process, Brown broke the record for the most votes ever received by a gubernatorial candidate, leading a Democratic sweep for the statewide ticket.
...Which is not surprising, since virtually all the state and national press early on anointed Whitman as an unstoppable high-tech juggernaut of a campaign run by the best consultants in the business. Up against poor old Jerry Brown and his ragtag little band. When in reality, it (Brown vs Whitman) was Ali-Foreman '74 all along, with what I called Brown's Zen rope-a-dope approach unfolding as anticipated."  

Well played Jerry, well played.

CD 14 candidate, Rudy Martinez, comes out swinging against Jose Huizar in a press release sent out yesterday. According to the presser, Jose threw DWP ratepayers under the bus in a critical vote that would have offered real reform for this dysfunctional behemoth. It wouldn't be the first time Jose's vote caused a community to suffer. Griffith Park Wayist has the post.

Councilman Krekorian loads up the Thanksgiving Food Drive donations at CBS Radford lot
There will be some happy folks in CD2 this Thursday;
Councilman Krekorian's Thanksgiving Food Drive managed to gather over 1000 lbs of  food donations  and several thousand dollars in donations from CBS and others in the community. Press release HERE.

Arizona's hillbilly SB1070 law (now suspended pending judicial review) has cost the state a hefty sum in boycott dollars that went elsewhere. Today's estimate is $140 million and rising. Nice job Verdugo Hills High School graduate, Governor Jan Brewer.

Finally, a programming note; No further comments will be accepted from 2010 Congressional Candidate Phil Jennerjahn until he allows comments on his own blog. He's dishing it out, but he refuses to take it in, and the MS blog  no longer has the time to be his sandbox.

In case anyone missed it, this Turd-for-Brains' website, www.philjennerjahn.com says he is RUNNING FOR CONGRESS, rather than City Council.

That is the sign of a true moron. When his own website still lists what he ran for in his last campaign.

That's like Villaraigosa's website saying he's running for City Council, rather than Mayor.

That's like Brown's website saying he's running for Attorney General, rather than Governor.

That's like Obama's website saying he's running for the Sentate rather than the White House.

I think the blog should make this ban PERMANENT, because there's no hope for this fool.

Joe: I am nominating you for an Emmy. It's pure comedy to compare the "well-conditioned Ali" to 70 year old Jerry Brown.

It's also humorous how you'll only make the younger/older comparison when it fits your argument. For example, you made a comparable statement about Obama vs. McCain, except in that case, you made the opposite point about the younger person being better.

I think we all know how THAT turned out. A true hero and a man with character, McCain, lost. The younger man with zero executive experiment won, but the U.S. lost.

You're a disgrace, a last place loser, and a quitter!

Red Spot,

For your latest attempt to pour cold water on the fun that others are having, if you had an OUNCE of ability to analyze writing, you'd see many different writing styles among those who are commenting about Phil.

Of course, you're an illiterate, so we don't expect YOU to know a thing about differing writing styles.

P.S. Go write more false posts about people that you'll have to apologize for later. How's THAT writing style for ya?

2. President
3. Attorney General, although he failed outta law school in year 1

4. L.A. Marathon
5. President of Gambler's Anon.

Exactly ONE WEEK AGO, Phil boasted that he just got his campaign's business cards and that he was "ready to hit the campaign trail."

Now, he suddenly realizes that he doesn't have a dime to his name to squander, after squandering money on filing the campaign application and for his dopey business cards with the website url that says he's running for Congress.

It's no wonder that dopey Red Spot is defending him. He's the only person who Phil is smarter than.

Mornin' 9:21,

I'm not giving Genderturd too much credit.

It's fun to watch his self-induced implosion. It's like when they show a stadium being imploded on TV.

Tough to look away. Although it IS amusing to see an illiterate alleged worker comp fraudster come to his defense. It's, you know, sweet when lovers care for one another.

Is it not moronic for someone to have on his website that he's running for Congress when in fact he's running for City Council?

Is it not moronic for him to squander money on a filing fee and business cards without realizing that he hasn't the funds or infrastructure to run a campaign, even a losing one?

Is it not throwing others under the bus by declaring that LaBonge will easily win?

Phil screws others, like those who believed in the Recall, and then ups and quits. He deserves all the ridicule he gets now and on future discussions.
