Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Thursday

We start off Political Blogging for 2014 by getting to the "MEAT" in the news.
Former Mayor Sam Blogger/ Sometime Tony Villar Driver/ Small Business Owner and the top Political Consultant against terminally-ill candidates Michael "MEAT" Trujillo.
Great bloggin 2014 to everyone as yesterday's celebration of a New Year turns into thee first regular work day back behind the keyboards. Thus, what better way to start 2014 than with a little bloggin "MEAT".
Our former bloggin colleague never fails to surprise us with his ability to find the entry way into a local news cycle. Imagine this blogger's surprise (or not) upon reviewing the daily edition of the "Old Gray Collectivist Hag on Spring Street" (aka LA Times) and finding numerous quotes from Trujillo regarding the larger than expected crowd for the New Year's Celebration at the Downtown Civic Center's Grand Park.
We should not be surprise that MEAT would find his way to a large downtown gathering, after all, with Tony Villar moving on to the Herbalife and his candidates of choice for Mayor, Wendy "IBEW, DWP, the Villar Machine and Boss D'Arcy's" Greuel not getting elected, the chance of "MEAT/ Chief Parker" getting invited to a local Political A-list New Year's Party, were slim.
But lets give credit to "MEAT/ Chief Parker" for not becoming part of the problem on New Year's (he can save his political problem-making abilities for the Billary 2016 Campaign). It would seem from the Times report that event officials and venders were caught off guard with the large turnout.
The Civic Center has a decades-long track record for turning out large crowds for musical events going back to the 1970's "Street Scene Events" (especially if booze is for sale). Plus, lets not forget that Downtown has become a more desirable living destination within the last few years.
** Kudos to KFI 640 A.M. for allowing now LA Public Works Commission President Kevin James to host Holiday Afternoon Drive the last two days. James was splendid back in his Talk Show Host role, with a nice interview of CD 15 City Councilman Joe Buscaino regarding the removal of parking meters, in the Business Districts of Wilmington and San Pedro, to promote enterprise.
** Our favorite City Council Sane Budgetary Hawk Bernard Parks had some interesting comments (Calling out California Governor "Moonbeam II" and the timing of former Failure Mayor Tony Villar's USC job) following a Superior Court Judge Ruling that forced the Coliseum Commission to pay the LA Times and California Aware's legal bills their collective investigation of Brown Act Violations originating from the Coliseum Giveaway to the "University of Scandalous Conduct".
** Lastly, but MOST IMPORTANT, the 2013 (in 2014) Mayor Sam Political Ass Clown Awards will begin the first full political blog week of 2014 on Monday.
Your thoughts .................
