Los Angeles Politics Hotsheet for Thursday

The Russell Pearce Pinata says,
"Please don't poke me".

Recall elections are not just for Wisconsin, as a bi-partisan group of activists have just submitted over 18,000 signatures to recall Arizona State Senate president Russell Pearce. Pearce, you'll recall, was the sponsor of SB1070 the "Show me Your Papers Law". Sen. Pearce, a close associate of numerous white supremacist and neo-nazi groups, is often held up as the man responsible for almost single-handedly (with some help from Gov. Jan Brewer) destroying Arizona's reputation as well as most of its tourist industry.

Speaking of immigration reform, California's version of The Dream Act has passed the state assembly on a landslide 46-25 vote. It's on to the Senate, and if successful there, Gov. Brown is expected to promptly sign it into law.  Los Angeles Assemblyman Gil Cedillo has been introducing the bill every year since 1995 only to have it die on the desk of Gov. Arnold "Amante Caliente " Schwarzenegger.

Former state treasurer Matthew Kipling Fong, the first Asian Republican to hold statewide office, has died in Pasadena at the age of 57. Matthew was the adopted son of March Fong Eu, the former Democratic California Secretary of State.

Mark your calenders and start planning which side dish to bring! The Community Alliance for Open Space is throwing a Victory Pot Luck Party on Saturday, June 11th at Dexter Park to celebrate their win against the City of Los Angeles. This hardy group of activists banded together to stop Richard Alarcon's illegal truck driving school from opening on designated Open Space at the former Lopez Canyon Landfill. They won, and they won big, and it's now time to party! Expect a huge turn-out, fine music, great people, and some damn good eating!

You can always tell immediately when Joe B. does the Hotsheet. Not a compliment. Where's Higby?

Is it because my name is at the bottom of the post?

At least Pearce was legislating when this controversy came along, Joe.


Hmmm? He refuses to say if that's HIM in the Tweeted pic. And he's been married just under one year.

Refusing to answer?

Hmmm, yes, the press will accept that. NOT.

Oh, this is getting better by the hour with Anthony Weiner. What a loudmouth blowhard he is, and it's gonna come back to bite him, especially when he's slandering the media, even CNN's Dana Bash!

No, Joe, because usually your picture or first sentence not only gives you away, but it even gives your conclusions away.

Good morning, Joe:

422,000 new FIRST TIME jobless claims.

25,000,000 Americans are now either unemployed or underemployed.

How many of THEM do you think think Obama deserves to be re-elected?

Or is this one of those questions where you either don't post it, don't respond to it, or don't respond maturely to it?

Hey, where is the "breaking news" on horn dog Democrat congressman Anthony "the weiner" Weiner?

Why can't Rep Anthony Weiner tell us if that's HIS underwear in the photo he Tweeted?

Who doesn't know what their underwear looks like, or whether that's him in them?

Everyone knows that.

Weiner, too.

But he won't even answer the question.

Why am I not surprised that you won't address the controversy? We have a LYING Congressman! No comment from you, Joe?

It's funny how Anthony Weiner keeps saying "I want to get back to work" when he obviously has spent a lot of his free time playing frat boy games with college girls, even though he is married.

Odd, how he won't ask the FBI to investigate. It's a federal crime, but he won't ask.

"BREAKING NEWS" (that you won't hear from Joe B!)

The Fox News app from the iTunes store is the #1 free app on the site!

In just 48 hours!

Whoo, hoo, Joe!

It's over for Obama and all of his Socialist dreams! We're going to live in Jennerjahn World, and you're gonna have to deal!

Ha ha ha
Good one!

In Joe's defense (as if he needs anyone to defend him) he is a columnist. Unlike reporters who have a responsibility to try and report the different sides of a story (Fox News excepted), columnists exist to express their opinions and often generate controversy, discussion, and action.

Joe doesn't need to write about the annual good thing that Sarah Palin may do because there are plenty of others columnists on this blog who will do that.

So if you don't like what he writes, don't attack him. That's for morons and drunks. Instead try and generate your own discussion.
