This is that sacred month where the end is in sight and those involved can see their chances […]Read more "Masticate on the madness of the month of mars my masses of misanthropic miscreants"
For agonizing months upon months we all waited for Jerry to declare. While mud was being slung among the candidates in both parties, Jerry stood silent. While poor voting records, bi-partisan donations, and adultery scandals came to light, Jerry stood silent. In the time both Campbell and Newsom declared and withdrew, Jerry stood silent.

There is much to discuss on the GOP front with a new poll that came out, as well as spending reports […]Read more "“Are you a Republican or a Republican’t?”: the GOP lineup in a countdown to June 8, 2010"
As much as I have spoken out for direct constituency representation, it seems these are policies and platforms that need to be hammered out behind closed doors with your campaign manager and PR guys.
