Boxer must be really scared – she lucked out when Bill Jones could not liquidate any of his stake in an ethanol company to fund his ill-fated campaign against her.
Now Calbuzz is crying in their beer - calling Carly Fiorina “Nasty”.
Spare me. Barbara Boxer is vicious and vile – just ask the General who probably needs reconstructive surgery after getting ripped by her majesty for the unfathomable sin of calling her Ma’Am.
Spare me again – this is the Same Barbara Boxer whose obsessive rampage over the economic stimulus had her calling Fiorina out the day after her reconstructive surgery (post breast-cancer no less) to come meet workers who benefitted from the stimulus.
We know Calbuzz are liberals. I get that. I have talked to them a few times – but they took a faceplant on this little snippet:
From the Mean Girls cattiness she accidentally revealed with her comments about Boxer’s hair, to the sophomoric sarcasm of “Boxer Bites” and her overall habit of making criticisms more personal than political…
To the guys at Calbuzz – Barbara Boxer’s Hairdo is a museum piece. There, now I said it.
…Fiorina’s attitudes and language echo the caustic corrosiveness of Sarah Palin, even as they recall the personal viciousness with which Carly set about to smash the civility and respectfulness of the “H-P Way” corporate culture when she moved in as CEO. An excerpt from Friday’s eblast:…
Oh Heaven forbid – another Conservative Woman who is not sequestered in the Kitchen. Must be scary for liberals…
…Perhaps it’s good that Barbara Boxer is visiting an employment-training center today. As a career politician who has been in elected office for more than three decades, the transition back into the real world is likely to be a rocky one. Boxer may very well need some job-skills training in order to find new employment after the people of California fire her on Election Day. (After all, bitter partisanship and election-year grandstanding aren’t exactly marketable job skills in the real world).
Another note for Calbuzz. I have Gray Hair now. I am a middle-aged man.
When Barbara Boxer first infested office – I was playing the horrific game of Dodgeball injuring the psyches of fellow students who were getting pummeled on the campus of Sherwood Elementary School in Modesto, CA.
2/3 of my lifespan later – Under Boxer’s leadership – Dodgeball is banned and children are drugged up and taught about alternative sexual lifestyles. If there is any time left in the school day – their Math, Reading and Science exams are graded based on feeling. Another legacy of Barbara Boxer.
The only defense for Barbara Boxer is to call Carly Nasty and beg for mercy. Nothing else has a chance of working… except for lying.
I thought Calbuzz was above whining – I really did.
No. It’s not Tom McClintock – McClintock is expected to endorse Ted Gaines, everyone knows this. Gaines has former Senator Rico Oller locked up as well.
Roger Niello has Former Congressman John Doolittle and Doug Ose in addition to the Late Senator Dave Cox who transfered $7800 to Niello the day he died.
But rumors are rife that Ted Gaines is going for the throat and is working on a ‘Huge” endorsement characterized as a ”Republican Party” endorsement. What the heck – Tom McClintock got a few of those, Rick Keene even got one… why not Ted?
The feedback I have gotten from locals is the only thing holding them back from choosing Roger Niello is that one bad vote…
Now if you’re Ted Gaines – you’d be wondering just how many ’Huge’ Endorsements it is going to take to make your side of the SD-01 Race about more than one bad vote by Roger Niello?
The Tea Party? Rumor has it that they are not thrilled with either candidate…
Life is a lot simpler for this blogger – need a good deal on insurance? I can make sense of that for you… wanna run for office? I’ll probably tell you no unless you can get a few ‘huge’ endorsements.
To Be Continued…
Remember – Yountville is in Mike Thompson and Nancy Pelosi’s Back Yard.
They tried to invalidate Robert Stryk’s signatures…
Imagine you’re running for Mayor of Yountville. The Signers on Stryk’s nomination papers didn’t put cities and states on the papers – the Napa County registrar said they were ok, but the people at the City office rejected them.
It is obvious that they are nervous. They should be: Stryk forced a runoff
Two hours later – Stryk returned with signatures they could not reject.
Sound assinine? Mike Thompson and “Republican” John Dunbar have spent $100,000 thus far attempting to stop Robert Stryk.
Police officers in Yountville have harassed Stryk over the placement of his campaign signs and have shadowed him while he is walking door-to-door campaigning.
The Yountville Sun – an illegal corporation that has not paid their taxes since 2007 continues to collude with Mike Thompson.
And so it goes.
Meantime – Stryk is self-funding his campaign. He does not want to be beholden to anyone when he wins.
I think that makes him even more dangerous.
Blogger’s Note - this is not a prop 14 election. There is a Primary and 7 weeks later, there will be a general.
This blogger has been at ground zero of the unfolding race coming to replace the late Dave Cox (R- Fair Oaks).
Assemblyman Roger Niello – endorsed by Dave Cox on his deathbed (literally). One of the last actions of Senator Cox was to write Niello $7,800 in checks for his campaign.
Roger Niello is a “Nice Guy” – to his credit, he stood up and appeared in public to take the heat even coming to CRA meetings after his vote for the largest tax increase in state history.
Niello will be vulnerable to two attacks – He endorses liberals and that vote for the Feb, 2009 budget – made worse by the fact that the State Budget continues to be a disaster.
Niello goes in to battle with the Dave Cox and Doug Ose endorsements. One could assume that Moderate Republican Congressman Dan Lungren will follow.
Assemblyman Ted Gaines – most likely will be endorsed by Tom McClintock.
Unlike Roger Niello – Ted Gaines has made very few phone calls. Gaines position is to wait until Arnold calls the special election. It is the opinion of this blogger and many other Conservatives that Arnold has waited until the end of the constitutional timeline on purpose and will call the special election at a time that most benefits Niello.
Too bad for them – Ted Gaines is sitting on $500,000.
Ted Gaines’ major achilles heel is he appears to be distant. For a varitey of reasons, this is a theme that has been repeated to this blogger – Niello’s habit of getting out in public is a distinct advantage for Niello. (a major reason Doug LaMalfa trounced Rick Keene was this exact perception)
Gaines will also have fence mending to do with local electeds from the John Doolittle debaucle in late 2007 – even more pointedly so with Doolittle’s long awaited exhoneration finally occurring.
Ted Gaines’ problems don’t stop there…
Enter Former Assemblywoman Barbara Alby. The source that told me Alby is running is as impeccable.
Barbara Alby is apparently convinced that her third place finish behind George Runner and Alan Nakanishi for Board of Equalization is behind her and that she will be able to get even with the resources of both Gaines and Niello.
One thing is clear – both Alby and Gaines in the race will give Niello a distinct advantage.
Other contestants – Rico Oller (endorsed Gaines), Dan Logue (decided against moving) have removed themselves from the picture.
So the question is: Will Niello get treated like Mike Villines who beat a nothing opponent by only 8,000 votes or will it resemble Abel Maldonado who trounced Sam Aanestad in the primary?
That is up to Ted Gaines.
Ted Gaines? He has never run a competitive race.
Neither had Doug LaMalfa. (LaMalfa won by 16 despite being outspent 2-1)
Gaines and LaMalfa have Dave Gilliard running their show – and Gillard made a believer out of this blogger in the June 2010 primary.
More to follow for sure…
Nicole Parra – alleged Moderate Democrat Assemblywoman. (she is now a registered Independent)
Not hardly – she scored worse than any Republican on her CRA scorecard and she voted for every disaster budget ever put in front of her.
However, Parra had a conscience about a few issues – highlighting how the Pelosi-Fenistein-Harman-Boxer leadership of the Democrat Party is not only in the Top 50 wealthiest, but also has lost touch with even “regular” Democrats like Nicole and Pete Parra.
Quoting the Carly Fiorina Press Release today:
In the coming weeks, former Supervisor Parra and former Assemblywoman Parra will together spearhead the effort to recruit support for Fiorina’s campaign from Democrats, independents and decline-to-state voters across California. Fiorina has previously been endorsed by Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims, who is registered decline-to-state, and Mendota City Councilman Leo Capuchino, who is a Democrat.
Maybe the fact that Boxer cares more about Carly’s finances, a slimy fish and screwing the US military than her voters is a factor?
Oh – not to be outdone, the Sacramento Bee (rumored to be published in Jerry Brown’s basement) chimed in with a suprisingly balanced story on Nicole Parra and her endorsement of Carly Fiorina.
It sucks to be Barbara Boxer – her reign over the serfs of California is coming to an end. All her supporters can do is whine.
