Youve got to be kidding me. This idiot in charge of anything strikes me with fear.

And cant we just appoint some idiot to fill her seat. A special election for a freshman House member seems like a waste of money.

We're headed down the pooper...

The California Political Bubble continues.
How can candidates Garamendi and DeSaulnier consider running for the US Congress, CA District 10? Our State Government is broken and in the process of shutting down, these two men are no small part of the problem yet they think voters will send them to Washington. This is what happens to career politicians; they get surrounded by a bubble and lose touch with the people they represent. I can't imagine anybody seriously thinking that these two individuals have done a good job. They represent exactly what is wrong with the State of California. It would be different if these candidates had exercised a leadership role in resolving California's budget crisis. Instead where are they? Running for a Federal office. Whatever happened to public servants sacrificing and working hard to get a difficult the job done? Their only priority is to get reelected. I hope that you will visit Web Link to see the many MUCH more qualified candidates seeking this position.
