Shocked, Shocked – A Republican Supporting A Democrat (Edited)

Russ Steele

I was listening to KNCO this morning when in typical Democrat fashion Jim Reed, “the fiercely independent Democrat” spent his whole political ad trashing Doug LaMalfa. We did not hear anything about Reed’s vision for the California and our district, only a bunch of trash talks about LaMalfa.

(Text removed by editor to correct a quotation error, it was a anonymous voice reading quotes by Republicans against LaMalfa, not the individuals who uttered the words against LaMalfa.)

Ellen and I attended a Coffee for Local Vets sponsored by Doug LaMalfa, where he answered our questions and made his case for representing us in Washington. Not one negative word about this opposition.  The contrast is stunning.

    Russ: That is not Sam’s voice in the ad. It is someone stating what Sam has said in the media during the primary.

    In my view if a Republican defeated in a primary, fair and square, comes out and supports a democrat for the office, they are to be considered a person with a big two fingered L on the forehead.

    “The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual, and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation on the ruins of public liberty.”

    Sadly for these R saps supporting the democrat they will be considered pariahs by the party and it adherents. Doug will win in a landslide and these lovelies will have a pie in the face.

    Mr. Frisch: Those are terrible things to say about B.O. Shame on you!
