Beware the coming North American community

Tuesday, June 27th, 2006

(Take notice, friends of mine who work at “news” shows: this story is crying out for correspondent coverage.) I’m glad I’m not the only one concerned by those internationalist Republicans and their plan for a United States of North America. A concerned citizen writes: Dreier for `guests’ Unfortunately, the recent letter from Genevieve Clavreul is […]

A SethInCA Project: Help engage Cynthia Rodriguez Matthews with the Netroots

Monday, June 19th, 2006

(Cross-posted at Daily Kos, Calitics, and MyDD) The short version: I’m going to go interview Cynthia Rodriguez Matthews, the Democratic candidate for Congress who’s challenging David Dreier in CA-26. I’d like to encourage her to become involved with the netroots, and as a start I want to reach out to her with your questions. Please […]

Another blog covering this race

Sunday, June 11th, 2006

And I thought I was alone. Turns out there’s yet another blog covering the race in CA-26: In 2004, Dreier outspent Matthews 50 to 1 yet received the lowest percentage of the vote during any of his elections since 1980. 2006 is the year to remove him from Congress. Click here, here and here to […]

$40k Push Poll?

Friday, June 9th, 2006

So far, this is the most intriguing of answers to my question about how the Warner campaign lost it. I wonder where I can get another source on this (from the comments on my MyDD diary): Wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t heard it myself, but Wes Clark – here in Vegas for the […]

CA-26: An Election Day Mystery

Thursday, June 8th, 2006

[cross-posted at Daily Kos, MyDD and Calitics] A week ago, I wrote a diary here asking for suggestions for starting a new blog to cover the race in CA-26. Two nights ago, I watched and reloaded, slightly disbelieving the preliminary results in the Democratic primary in CA-26, David Dreier (R-Closet)’s district. Russ Warner, endorsed by […]

Woah, woah

Monday, June 5th, 2006

I got a little carried away (see below), what with some free time on my hands, a working Internet connection, and a couple days of blogging to catch up on. This is from my walk through Claremont, up Harvard Ave: And here’s a summary of all of the posts below. Election day is tomorrow in […]

Election Day Tomorrow

Monday, June 5th, 2006

Tomorrow is Election Day! Go vote! And if you’ve got some time: If you are going to be in CA June 6 come by campaign headquarters for Russ Warner in Rancho Cucamonga, 10064 Foothill Boulevard, between Haven and Archibald. We can use all the help we can get. Map of 10064 Foothill Boulevard, Rancho Cucamonga, […]

Lest we forget…Dreier voted for corruption

Monday, June 5th, 2006

As I mentioned earlier, breaking the ethics truce might be good politics for November because it’ll get Republicans on the record. Of course some of them, David Dreier included, are already on the record as being pro-corruption. As Josh Marshall reminded us in January: Ahhh, The DeLay Rule, truly the muckraker’s gift that keeps on […]

Clean up that place

Monday, June 5th, 2006

Running to fill disgraced Rep. Duke Cunningham’s seat, it’s no wonder Francine Busby has put ethics at the center of her campaign. We’ll find out tomorrow how well that goes. Even if it doesn’t put her over the top, I think it’s still a good strategy, considering the GOP-controlled government has failed to pass any […]

Leaving for California Tomorrow

Sunday, June 4th, 2006

My flight is at 8 am. Darnit. While I’m en route, read this: Congress hopefuls aided by party splits. … Dreier has been tested before. In 2004, he won re-election by the thinnest margin in his career and the smallest margin of any incumbent member of Congress in California. “I am looking for a big […]
