Doktor_Zhivago: Is this the California that's kicking Kansas' ass in every possible metric despite Republican Jesus smiling upon their tax cuts?
bdub77: The move by the multimillionaire Laguna Beach resident, who ran the federal government's Wall Street bank bailoutDIE IN A FIRE
GreenAdder: The writer is merely afraid of the suede-denim secret police. I'm told they're an unstoppable force in California.
TheJoe03: Jerry Brown is actually doing a good job for the state, he'll probably win in a landslide.
raerae1980: I'm not voting for him. He has an R beside his name.
Befuddled: So this guy is saying that he couldn't just look around and see how screwed up things are for many, that he had to go experience it firsthand in order to have empathy for those who are at the economic bottom? That's supposed to make me want to vote for him?At least after he did this, he gave heavily to homeless shelters or other groups working to help those at the economic bottom, right? After all, he now understands that he has more than enough while others have so little.
TuteTibiImperes: FTFA: "While the politicians who run California pat themselves on the back and claim a 'California Comeback,' they willfully ignore millions of our neighbors who are living in poverty," Kashkari wrote. "California's most vulnerable citizens deserve leaders who will fight for them. It's a fight that Republicans should lead."Yes, because if anyone has a reputation for standing up for the poor, it's Republicans.
Wyalt Derp: Did he really "live a week as a homeless man" as the headline states, or just film himself pretending to be homeless, as the article seems to indicate?/at this point, what difference does it make?
Laobaojun: And the inversion of the parties continues.When I was growing up, the Democrats were the clueless morass of conflicting agendae, who pandered to the crazies. For a California Republican to actually do something tangible to champion the homeless is a little shocking, but not terribly surprising. Next thing you know, the Dems will declare Henry Kissinger the national saint of foreign policy.

czetie: notto: When I was growing up, the Democrats were the clueless morass of conflicting agendaeThe english plural of agenda is "agendas"."agenda" is already plural in Latin, from the neuter noun "agendum" ("action"), hence the English adaptation to mean "list of actions or items" as singular noun, and then more than one list becomes "agendas", the standard English pluralization.Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go add this to my long list of Things That Stupid People Think Smart People Say, which ironically, is a fair description of your entire post.
notto: You might want to take a moment off your high horse and try to quote the right poster.
heavymetal: The thing about his actions is even if it was sincere and he genuinely lived has a homeless person to learn more about their plight, I would take it with a grain of salt. Why, because of the crowd he runs with. As far as I know, his homeless plight could just be some fancy camera work and editing by James O'Keefe? How do I know he isn't one of those Republicans who talk a good game about sympathy for the poor to the press and then villainizes them behind closed doors to big donors?
Nina_Hartley's_Ass: "Compassionate conservatism"? Heard it before.+1 to subby for "Daily Kos diarist," tho.

Lionel Mandrake: Kashkari said he made the video to experience firsthand whether the "California comeback" being boasted about by Gov. Jerry Brown (D) actually exists for everyday Californians.Homelessness has not been entirely eradicated, therefore vote Republicanlol
