Jello Biafra was convinced she had a hand in murdering Harvey Milk. If you ever happen to hear his telling of that day's events. He got into it on his 1990 spoken word tour. I don't have a link.

LibertyHiller: qorkfiend: Gulper Eel: Mjeck: Thanks, but she's running her own campaign

And doing such a bang-up job of it that she hired a campaign manager who robbed her blind. Nothing like blowing off doing your due diligence.

qorkfiend: Surely you have evidence of this corruption.

The -CA after her name should suffice, as it does for -NY, -NJ, -MA, -IL, -FL, -LA and -TX.

So, no, you don't have any evidence of corruption.

Actual corruption, probably not. But he has a point.

DiFi swings a heavy stick in favor of the Central Valley industrial-agricultural complex when it comes to Federal water policy, without it being mentioned that her husband is heavily into agribusiness. It's more along the line of a conflict of interest that's pretty ordinary by most standards.


For one other example, here's that raving right wing nutcase Glenn Greenwald of Salon:

Low-levels leakers who disclose evidence of high-level wrongdoing are mercilessly punished by the Obama DOJ, while the high-level criminals they expose - and high-level leakers seeking to glorify the President - are aggressively shielded from all consequences. Meanwhile, leaks of classified information continue to be the prime currency for the same Washington media class that loves to heap scorn on people like Bradley Manning and Julian Assange. In sum, leaks of classified information are a heinous crime when done to embarrass or undermine those in power, but are noble and necessary when done to bolster them.

Nobody embodies this species of blatant corruption more purely than the senior Democratic Senator from California and Intelligence Committee Chairwoman, Dianne Feinstein, who also serves as the National Security State's most faithful servant (a National Security State which, just by the way, has greatly enriched her extremely rich military contractor husband, Richard Blum


It's okay when a Democrat does it.

DiFi will be Senator until she or God decides otherwise. The California GOP simply doesn't have anyone with enough experience or name recognition to challenge her or Boxer now that the Governator has gone back to movies.

The cost of running a statewide campaign in four of the country's largest television markets so exorbitant, that the state GOP, which is essentially broke, will hand the nomination for these lost causes to people who are willing to self-finance. That's why we've been getting harpies such as Whitman, Fiorina and now, Emken, who is C-list on her best day.

The GOP has lost the demographic battle in California, and with our new blanket primary system, they can't even get on the November ballot in some races. (Although that's also true for the Dems in a few districts, the GOP is being shut out in three House races for every one in which they're able to shut out the Democrats; the statewide total is 9-3 if my math is right.)

I don't know if the California GOP is doomed, but it's becoming less relevant with every election that passes.

Mercutio74: She handled that poorly. She could have just said something like, "We couldn't agree to any acceptable terms for a debate so unless that changes, there won't be a debate."

Then when he asks, "Shouldn't the voters hear what the candidates have to say?" or whatever... she could have responded with "I've been the Senator for my constituents for x-millionty years. They know who I am, and they know what I do for them in Warshington, and they know how I vote on issues. I believe I have a good relationship with the people in my state. If my opponent is having trouble getting their message across to the people, perhaps it's a message the people don't agree with."

And that's with putting about 15 seconds of thought into it.


Thanks, but she's running her own campaign

She's also refused to discuss the matter with other reporters, says the Sacramento Bee, but clearly they're just another obscure right-wing rag with the knives out.

Hard to blame her when she has zero chance of losing the election. She wins by 20% pretty much every time.

On the other hand, time to retire you old hag.

kingoomieiii: An ABC affiliate misrepresents the context of their own interview to create controversy for a Democrat leading in the polls? DAMN the liberal media, always in the tank for Obama's goons.


Just a bit of context on that stations credibility as a news source...

This is the same affiliate that reported on the 2004 Spanish elections by saying that the voters had bowed to islamic terrorists by throwing out their existing government to appease them. Thanks to Fark it was clear that the voters had in fact thrown out their government for lying to them and trying to pin the train bombings on Basque separatists.
