My Ballot Picks

Click the link below to see the entire list

Governor - Hold your nose and vote for Meg Whitman. Handing over the keys to Governor Moonbeam would be a fiscal disaster. Voting for a third party is handing the keys over to a known Socialist.

Lt Governor - This is a meaningless position except when they have to fill in for the Governor. Both Abel Maldonado and Gavin Newsom are first class turds so here is an opportunity to send a message and vote for an economics professor (no not Zuma Dogg) Libertarian nominee Pamela J. Brown.

Secretary of State - A quite important position and one that the incumbent Deborah Bowen has screwed up royally with extending the amount of time it takes to provide services such as process incorporation requests and such. Damon Dunn, a young African American man who is a dynamic success story is a future political star and will streamline the operations of this department.

Controller - California's fiscal health will depend on who fills this watchdog position. Tony Strickland is a solid fiscal conservative in the Mitt Romney vein. Vote for him.

Treasurer - Any fiscal position is the last place you want to put a Democrat. In some cases you don't want a Republican there. However like Strickland, Mimi Walters, is a strong fiscal conservative with a business background.

Insurance Commissioner - See above, more importantly this position should not even exist. That being said we don't need to discuss Democrat Dave Jones. Republican Mike Villines might as well be a Democrat having been honored by the Kennedy Foundation along with budget destroying Socialist Karen Bass. Go Libertarian here and vote for Richard S. Bronstein.

Congress, District 36 - Jane Harman is too entrenched with Washington, the defense industry and Hamas. Vote for upcomer Mattie Fein, a scrappy, single mom and businesswoman who will take the Congress by storm.

Congress, District 47 - For some time we've documented what a disaster Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez has been. Van Tran, an immigrant from Vietnam and an American success story is giving Sanchez a run for her money. Orange County deserves better representation than they've been getting from Sanchez and Tran will provide it

State Senate, 28th District - John Stammreich is running against an opponent who sadly passed away a few weeks ago. That being said even when she was alive John was the better choice. A community activist with a long business background the dysfunctional State Legislature needs more common sense average folks like John.

State Assembly, 43rd District - Now more than ever you know what to do. Join the disgusted Democrats and enthusiastic Republicans voting for the common sense businessman Sunder Ramani.

By my count, you've made at least 16 bad calls. I even agree with you on some of these but 16 or more of your predictions are going to fail.

Thanks for filling in the gaps, although we disagree on some of the propositions, I'm stumped by the candidates and really have been less than wowed by most of them. With the only exception of Cooley, everyone else is a sort of "anti vote." I wish that this election was not so much one of a choice between the least objectionable candidates.

With that said, if todays incredibly low turnout for Jerry Brown's "Call To Action" Rally at the Downtown Central Library is any indication of the true level of Democrat support, Brown, Boxer and Harris are in deep trouble.

Many people believe that the tsunami that will sweep across America tomorrow will stop at the California boarder, but judging by how few people could be bothered to show up for the entire Democrat ticket, I think it's likely that we'll be calling Boxer "M'am" very soon.

"known socialist".....you're (unintentionally) hilarious! I'll bet you still think Obama was born in Kenya, too.

good to hear what you and Kevin James pick so we can do the opposite. In most cases.

No, Obama was born in the Philippines.

Then there are those who admit he was born in Hawaii but since it's not "the continental United States" and mix of cultures, say he's not REALLY American.

Well if you exclude anyone from Hawaii add Palin to the mix and maybe I'll agree if they cancel each other out. Hillary would have been more sensible and she didn't make false promises. But Obama's far from socialist, he's gone far to the middle from where he started years ago. The left are angry he's TOO FAR right. You people are something.

These recent elections sure put a lie to L A being a liberal city. But shame on the Democrats who stay home and think it doesn't matter. The rednecks go out in force as do the older no-taxation people.

It happens to lots of people: reality hits. oh and political survival.

Can you find any more Republicans to endorse? Maybe dig up Reagan. Only thing I agree with you on is holding your nose. We'll all have to do that if your choices win. And if Prop. 23 wins, we'll have to wear oxygen masks as well.
