Los Angeles Politics Hotsheet for Wednesday
Believe it or not, there was another big event on Sunday besides the career ending firing of Michael Trujillo. The Green Bay Packers, America's only all Socialist pro football team, won the 45th Super Bowl by beating the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25. Congrats to the Pack and to the people of Green Bay, Wisconsin who actually own the team.
Sunday was also Ronald Reagan's 100th birthday! That's a great excuse to learn about his amazing disastrous legacy one agonizing chart at a time. Yea, he was that bad, and we're still paying for it.
The LA Times recently posed a set of questions to CD2 Councilman Paul Krekorian and his challenger, Augusto Bisani, regarding issues facing the district and why either would be the better representative. Unbelievably, Augusto Bisani did not even bother to respond.
For a guy that has zero name recognition, this was a blown opportunity to make his case to the public. His campaign manager, David Hernandez, needs his butt kicked and/or Bisani should just drop the candidate act completely and go back to selling pizza ovens.
The stay at home blogger and pasty white guy that hates pasty white guys, most bloggers, pasty white girls, and anyone that isn't a bartender, Joseph Mailander, continues his rants against just about everyone, especially those that won't hire him. Now he refers to us at Mayor Sam as right wing sociopaths who support Martinez in solidarity, never mind that I've never supported Martinez, the right wing, or sociopaths. Lesson 1; Do your research Joseph, don't just make it up as you go along!
Please consider visiting his little blog every now and then so he'll feel important and stuff and stop hating on the world.
Finally, Attention LA City Council! Take Note: This is how it's done right!
Ok, enough of this, back to bashing Huizar and Martinez and the downfall of Trujillo. Ready, GO!
