This is the city: Los Angeles, California. I work here. I'm an ex-mayor. Los Angeles is a magnet for people from all over the world. Some of them run for public office. Inevitably some of them stray from the golden rule and rule for those that have the gold. That's when I go to work. My name is Yorty. I'm a dead pol.
Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Tuesday
BERNIE DOES LA!! A crowd of 28,500 perspective consumers of redistributed wealth, come together at the LA Sports Arena in a collective show of solidarity for the 21st Century incarnation of American Socialist Icon Norman Thomas, in the current form of Democratic Socialist Candidate, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.
"Berniemania" is all the rage among the perspective Consumers of Redistributed Wealth.
We know that the former "Bloggin Designated Driver for Tony", turned occasionally-winning Campaign Consultant (especially if the opposing candidate has a terminal illness), is not one to shy away from a political challenge. But in the aftermath of yesterday's mega-turnout for Socialist Democratic Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders, the local "Hillary for President" shill, will be hard press to match the crowd size and energy for any future events involve the "Spouse of Bill".
While much can be extrapolated from yesterday's rally and muse upon in bloggin commentary, the concise point to be made is that both parties have "Establishment Issues", personified by the campaigns of Senator Sanders (on the fringe Left) and Donald Tramp (on the frustrated Grass Roots Right).
........, and for the likes of Trujillo, who has found bountiful political opportunities, shilling for Establishment Politicos such as former Failure Mayor Antonio Villar, former CD 2/7 City Councilman Richard AlarCON and CD 14 City Councilman Jose "The Tonto Huevon" Huizar, the growing Progressive backlash against unprincipled politicos as noted above, may lead to a less-opportune, political tomorrow.
