Another Carpetbagger Bites the Carpet

Okay stifle the snickers, 8th graders.

Art Pedroza over at the the Orange Juice blog did a post today about the phantom candidate, Sue Perez, pulling a campaignus interruptus in a putative bid for the 34th State Senate seat currently held by Lou Correa. This was important to us for two reasons: part of the 34th District includes Fullerton. And Sue Perez lives in the 33rd District. We have already posted on this woman’s carpetbagging candidacy, here.

Why did the chicken cross the road? To return to the 33rd State Senate District.
Why did the chicken cross the road? To return to the 33rd State Senate District.

Of course Art’s main thrust was to immediately poke holes in his newest target, Supervisor Janet Nguyen, who for some reason decided to let herself be named co-chair of this unknown wingnut’s effort. The other co-chair,  frighteningly enough, was our own brainless scarecrow, 33rd District State Senator Mimi Walters, who, not coincidentally also championed the hollow, illegal candidacy of the Ackerwoman. Figures. Ah, more Repuglican values we can count on.

At any rate both of these co-chairs have been spared the humiliation of seeing their candidate get the living shit kicked out of her by Correa. So that worked out okay for them.

The story that is being circulated is that Perez has some baggage. Pedroza hazily speculates that this involves her carpetbagging and her husband’s appointment to the Anaheim Planning Commission by Lorri Galloway.  This seems like small change to us, especially since Perez has apparently been employed by the bizzaros at the Trinity Broadcast Network.

So poor Jerb Cunningham, who has spilled lotsa ink badmouthing Lou Correa, is still in search of a God-fearing candidate. Good luck little fella. Maybe your hero Dick “I don’t look so good in stripes” Ackerman can scrounge up another Lynn “the Bulldozer” Daucher for us.

  1. Actually Sippy, reliable sources have it that Galloway pulled the plug because of the heat she was getting from Correa camp and allies, not because of her demented husband or his commission appointment. Interested persons should compare Galloway donors to those that will appear on Nguyen’s next updated campaign statements.

    1. Well, Luke, if that’s true it’s pretty weird. A Repuglican candidate endorsed by Meme Walters has the plug pulled by LibDem Galloway? Hard to believe.

      My guess is that the Perez family has some personal or financial embarrassment that wasn’t properly vetted by her puppeteers.

      Too bad. It might have been fun for FFFF!

  2. Its time for leaders of both parties to show some dignity and start a policy that the parties will not endorse any candidate that does not meet the state constitutional requirements ie, candidates must live in the district at least one year prior to elections.

  3. I really appreciate all the support from this blog. As a liberal Democrat who voted for a massive tax increase, any covering fire I can get from libertarians and conservatives really helps my re-election!

    1. “Lou Correa” formerly known as Beware of Cannibals, if you can cough up a decent candidate instead of crypto-nutjobs let us know!

      And you can stop pretending you care about poor, musunderstood Shawn Nelson. Soon you’ll be pimping Tom Daly.

  4. Lou,

    I’m still lookin to put a boot in your ass over that tax vote but you are a man of character and I admire that. In an era where banners are flown by folks (Ackermans and Jerbal come to mind) that actually do nothing more than throw the innocent voter off the scent, you stand up for what you believe and take the heat straight on.

    We can disagree on the tax vote (or you can admit I am right and you were wrong), agree on the second ammendment and still be firends. Go get ’em.

  5. I’m not as familiar with “blogging” as, evidently, I should be. I don’t know what “can be” controlled versus what “cannot” be controlled (i.e. by the moderator, etc.).

    It seems there is ample opportunity for individuals to use made up names (e.g. “Rain”) if they wish to comment anonymously.

    There is also the device of using made up character names in order to perhaps sort of take on the character of another individual, for example the poster who uses the name “Jan Flory’s Dog”).

    These things can be readily recognized and understood by even a casual, occasional or uninformed reader of this (or any other) blog.

    The difficulty that I have just now realized is that some of the contributors to this blog will evidently use the actual name of another individual, and thus impersonate another person (who is usually the topic of that posting topic or discussion).

    The example above, where someone posted a comment using the name “Lou Correa” seems to be a case of someone impersonating another individual.

    Unless you are “in the know” about this tactic, it can be confusing to your readers (and of course, damaging to the individual being impersonated).

    If someone wants to pretend to respond to the thread of discussion, as though they were the individual being pilloried in the sarcasm and barbs thrown here and there, they should make it CRYSTAL clear, what they are doing. Call yourself “Lou Korea” or something like that, because probably very few participants in the discussion will actually know, say, Lou Correa, well enough to anticipate exactly how he might in fact respond to the comments on this blog topic (and thus be able to detect a fake).

    In my life, I’ve found that when I REALLY do not like an individual (i.e. in public life, political office, etc.), then I am particularly pleased to “let them talk” as much and as freely as possible, because then MORE people will find out who and what that (i.e. undesirable, in my opinion) person is like. But I detest the practice of what now pretends to be our “news media” which now operates to muzzle and/or distort (via little snippet sound bites – removing context, or otherwise distorting, etc.) the words of an individual who the “main stream media” (i.e. the Democrats-Communist Party media) wish to attack and destroy.

    The new media of Internet and blogging, etc. certainly does not need to distort and falsify the words of public officials, the “MSM” does that “for us” already.

    I actually (previously) thought that when someone using the name “Chris Norby” posted a comment here, that in fact it was, Chris Norby, who wrote that comment.

    Yikes! This is a problem (at least for me, in my use of this blog, as a source of information or whether actual real life individuals have written the things attributed to them herein).

    I hope that my thoughts on this are recognized as an attempt to be helpful.

  6. Rain, I appreciate your thoughts on this issue, and now I hope you can appreciate mine:

    Sometimes you can say more by saying less.

    Also, this is the first incident of impersonation that I have noticed on this site. Joe called it out, and that’s probably all that needs to be done.

    1. Thanks for responding. I had missed Joe’s note until after I posted my comment and then reread the page.

      There is a lot of “inside baseball” on the site and I am WAY DOWN the learning curve. Consequently, I was really taken aback by the phony “Correa” comment, in that it made me question my past reading.

      I also recognize the difficulty of my “saying more” than would perhaps be best in this situation. Please just delete my comments (if that is possible?) if that would help.

      1. I don’t think they delete comments here. Nothing wrong with what you wrote, I was just suggesting that it might help people to read your comments a little better if you cut them down a little bit.

        I guess the whole fake Lou Correa incident touches on a concept that I keep reading on this blog: Ideas stand or fall without regard to who says them. Trust no one.

        1. Right. Trust no one. We actually have had commenters use different handles which is okay with us. Of course we may call them on it!

          The use of a real person’s name is a problem because of the anonymity of the internet. In the case of “Lou Correa” it was pretty evident that is was a (very feeble) attempt at sarcasm by somebody who thinks FFFF should prefer some carpetbagging puppet as a representative. Wrong!

          My liege, and madam, to expostulate
          What majesty should be, what duty is,
          What day is day, night night, and time is time,
          Were nothing but to waste night, day, and time;
          Therefore, since brevity is the soul of wit,
          And tediousness the limbs and outward flourishes,
          I will be brief. Your noble son is mad. . . .

  7. Where is the infamous Fullerton muskrat, the Jerb? or has he changed his pattern of responding to the name Jerb and is now Secret Squirrel?
