Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Wednesday
As the world's leading authority on image over substance, it's hard to argue with Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa when he told reporters at the Republican Convention the GOP can't "trot out a brown face or a Spanish surname and expect people are going to vote for your party."When it comes to "window dressing" Antonio Villaraigosa is Macy's at Christmas.The mayor was specifically referring to speakers scheduled to fire up the Republican faithful in Tampa, including Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez and Ted Cruz, a candidate for the U.S. Senate from Texas."Window dressing" the mayor called them. And Villaraigosa knows window dressing when he sees it because he is window dressing.
Seems to me that the "Brown Republican Window Dressings" listed above, also have more life and political substance than the "11% Mayor".
