Mid-Day Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Scene for Thursday

"The Old Gray Hag on Spring Street"
Count me as one of the remaining few east of the Los Angeles River, who's daily ritual begins with a morning walk to the corner store to purchase my kitty box liner of choice, the ever-thinning "Old Gray Hag", errrr, Los Angeles Times.
Seeking to maintain a "journalistic balance" of old print news, counter by new media with bloggin up to date content, I scan through the vertical columns of newsprint to find the Old Gray Hag's take on Los Angeles City Council President Eric Garcetti "flip-flop antics" yesterday at City Hall. The same waffling that Ron Kaye gave the "TSA treatment to" yesterday in feeling out the details.
Needless to say that my search ended with a middle-finger length of four paragraphs on Page AA4 of the LA Extra section. (The middle-finger is what many thousands of ex. readers have shone the Old Gray Hag in recent years, but I digress) But my ever-shortening scan through today's edition did yield a front page missive on the supposed voting exploits of the Tea Party supporters of Sarah Palin's daughter Bristol, (Does anybody remember the voting exploits of ACORN?) who made it to the finals of "Dancing with the Stars". In addition, a LA Times-USC Poll reports that new California Governor Bitter Jerry, may find Californians none too receptive in wanting to raise taxes. Thus, my morning education on current events is complete as the Johnny Cat pours over the newsprint.
Now back to the internet ...............
** KRLA Talk Radio Host Kevin James continues his interviews with candidates in the March 2011 Elections. His latest is with CD 12 City Council Candidate Kelly Lord, who is one of many seeking to pervent "Policeman Mitch Englander" from buying his way into the horseshoe. You can listen to Lord's interview by linking here and there.
** Get ready for some emergency phone calls from Congressman Xavier Bacerra when the new congressional boundries come into play. Further, one half of the Waxman-Berman Machine may be liquidated thanks to Prop 20.
** We bring you this from the "Ex. Jock of Marshall High School" who now sits within a Horseshoe on Spring Street. From the Westside White Guy's new journalistic, female flavor at City Hall "The City Maven".
Councilman Tom LaBonge, who once told KPCC’s Frank Stoltze he smoked weed as a young man, questioned whether the medical marijuana measure would tax bongs “or whatever they’re called.”
One too many "hits" on the field of play for LaBong(e)? CD 4 voters need to know.
** It seems that Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and CD 1 Councilman Ed "Density" Reyes have no future needs for "stinking EIRs and community input" on their various master plans to grow your neighborhoods.
** Now a bloggin intervention on the behalf of Political Consultant and now Councilman Jose Huizar Campaign Manager Michael Trujillo. In his own words.
"We are pretty positive that we have over 65 per cent of the votes in the city," Trujillo revealed. This measure only needs a 50-per cent vote. "I will go on record by stating right now, that if we lose Measure B, I will never work in a political campaign in my life," Trujillo promised.
Mike, men of faith keep their word.
Your thoughts..............
Scott Johnson in CD 14

This is funny.

Phil Jennerjahn is crowing that he has his business cards for his latest dopey campaign for city council, with his www.philjennerjahn.com address on it.

But when you go to that address, it says "Phil Jennerjahn for Congress!"

What an idiot.

In the meanwhile, I'm still trying to figure out how he can list his occupation as "Political Consultant" when he has never earned a dime in that role. Unless he paid himself with donations to Recall City Hall, which would explain why he can't explain where the money went.

Yeah, he's a real winner that one.

You mean like the priests who raped children?

You mean like Popes who took anti-Semitic stances, and who also protected those child rapists?

Phil is very funny on his blog.

He writes, "Big news for our readers."

I guess by "our" readers, Phil refers only to himself. And by "readers," I guess he means himself and Higby.

Very funny, Phil!

What is the deal with Phil Jennerjahn and your trying to block criticism of him?

I'm with 12:25pm.

I want to know when you're going to talk about Phil's claim that he is a "political consultant."

For whom?


Was he paid?

He's running for city council and he's listing this as his occupation. You should be colorblind with respect to your friendship with him. Let's open this to discussion since it's public information and Phil himself put it out there.

Like you would do to claims of LaBonge, Huizar, their challengers and others in that world.

Why would you waste the daily .50 cent fee when you could subscribe for a fraction of the money?

I guess you're as good at math as you are at English!

The candidate, Phil Jennerjahn, is still refusing to open his blog for feedback from the community he seeks to represent. How can Phil gain the trust and respect of voters if he refuses to listen to their opinions?
