Tamar Galatzan said Zuma Dogg was the first name that comes to mind when asked who she would hire as her chief of staff.

I'll play Hall Monitor Joe B., and demand to know "Did you really need the exclamation point?"

That's called "pulling a Joe B."

It's weird how Joe pushes his way into every conversation for the express purpose of preventing people with whom he disagrees from expressing THEIR views, but he'll attack people like Phil or the commenters for expressing theirs.

In fact, Joe B. has been deleting comments that were well within polite guidelines simpy because he doesn't agree with the person's comments.

I am hardly the first person he did this too, as you can see that there are others (I don't know how many so don't be childish and suggest it was only me).

So I'm going to "pull a Joe B." if I see something completely minor and irrelevant that merits a complaint.

Fortunately this string isn't Joe B's, and I hope that this will get posted.

Joe B. wants to be a bully and act like a Hall Monitor and suck the oxygen out of the conversation? Lovely.

The zuma dogg is ripping into Dough Mcintyre this morning and it's a riot.

It is not a good idea to rip into a generous talk radio host, especially since he gives so many mentions of The zuma dogg on a weekly basis.

Someone please slap some common sense into the zd and ask him to apologise.

Speaking of zuma dogg ripping into Doug Mcintyre this morning, he ripped another one for Trutanich, about how he not only lied to Chick to get her endorsement, calling her lawyer THEN someone "fighting for truth, justice and the American way" and NOW calling him a loser and a sucking sound on the city dollar, wanting to continue the lawsuit which will cost a lot more than if he paid off th $100,000 or so legal fee, BUT he said the Times was totally missing the other point in their story about the ongoing dispute now being carried on by Wendy Gruel.

Doug points out that Trutanich is telling Greuel that she has no right to sue because HE is her lawyer, but he's acting as her prosecutor and opponent - so he's really saying, anyone in the city who disagrees with him, he'll screw them and sue them.

Doug said the extra legal fees the city will incur over this vs. just paying the lawyer's small fee goes counter to Trutanich's promises to save money like doing more lawsuits in-house, which is why he voted for him over Jack Weiss. (However Weiss also said the same thing but realized that in order to handle more claims in-house the City Attotnry's office would need more lawyers so it would depend on hiring them, getting the budget to hire the people, but it was a top priority to reduce waste and expense in all aspects of the dept. He just didn't lie and make false promises.)

Trutanich told the Times 2 weeks ago he'll need 50 highly specialized and more expensive lawyers with support staffs, plus 200 private investigators, to handle in-house cases, and when Horton asked if he would show a cost breakdown to show actual savings, he admitted he hadn't gotten that far, he just wanted the extra people first then he'd see. For now he is NOT saving money as he claims and they still pay the same outside firms. he doesn't want Wendy Greuel to be able to do an audit to find out.

Trutanich also came up of course on Kevin James' show last night, where he interviewed the candiates and one of the questions was if they agreed with him about his tagging injunction, in light of the criticism around town that it was a constitutional violation.

All of them including Tamar said yes, but they all talked about what a blight tagging was and so on, not one of them got the fact that the criticism is about HOW it's written, not about tagging. It's written so that kids not even tagging but just "hanging" with those who may be taggers are going to be swept up in the injunctions and prosecuted as taggers. That's where the lawsuits for profiling lawsuits will be filed, because cops will treat as criminals those who are innocent except by casual and possibly unknowing association. Cops hate the law because it would put them back into the business of being bad guys who arrest based on appearance or mere suspicion, who treat kids in bad hoods the same as known taggers or gangsters.

I'm all for prosecuting taggers and making them clean up and pay for damages but this is something totally different.

It's really scary that Trutanich and these would-be councilmembers can't see what the civil rights lawyers and street cops are saying about this ham-handed injunction. Even if someone doesn't care about the constitution (which includes a lot of readers of this blog) they can add up the money in lawsuits.

Jan Perry said yesterday she did object in principle to the Controller auditing her office or those of other city officials, siding with Rocky in his original lawsuit. Proving she and LaBonge really are as stupid as they sound.

She also proved it by painting Clear Channel as the good guys against the rest of council and anti-billboard blight activists, when she accepted some money from them in exchange for a park, arguing that their putting up two huge 7-story lighted signs right on the freeway was part of her doing the rest of the city a favor.

And this woman wants to run for Mayor, just like Rosendahl wants to run for Feinstein's Senate seat. And let's not forget Zine working on his resume in hopes of becoming Chief of Police. If you think the politicians we have now are scary stupid...

Yep. Tamar lost my vote with that decision. She just proved why are schools are still screwed up. My choice is now between Benson & Sheftel.

If Tamar Galatzan won (God forbid), the best thing for CD 2 would be for her to hire Zuma Dogg as her chief of staff and Mary Benson as her Planning Deputy. I already wrote on another thread that she doesn't have the balls.

She'll line up with those 14 council members downtown and be one of the 15-0 votes that she is dissing to VICA.

Stuart, stop waving your hands. Do you see how bad that looks? Like a freaking light show. And you don't have to look straight into the camera. You and Eric were just fine talking. We don't need to see you head on. I hope you video all of the VICA meetings. I would watch them if they were uncut.

3:59 whats your point? In case your living under a rock we have a problem with our city and these marijuana places. Have you heard Sheftel discuss his plans on regulation and permit fees? He's the only candidate with the balls to address the issue. He and Benson ( bet she's got some balls too ) are the only ones I am liking right now. And leaning toward Sheftel after hearing the Show last night.
