And don't I remember he threw a right tantrum when he lost?







Actually, better than that. He swore up one wall and down the other that he only lost because of illegal immigrants voting. So they launched a huge congressional investigation to try to find some illegal immigrants who had voted for Loretta (or voted at all, really; it was assumed if they had voted, they had voted for her). Dornan was sure that thousands of illegales had voted for her, but they spent about a million bux, and they couldn't find enough questionable votes to overturn the result, so she took office.



But my favorite Dornan story is from 8 years before that, involving his wife, Sallie. A gay activist named Jeff LeTourneau was heckling her husband so she screamed "SHUT UP, FAG!"



She later tearfully apologized.





She later told the approximately 200 people who were at the meeting that her outburst was motivated by anger and concern over her brother, who she said was gay and had contracted AIDS.



"My brother is dying," an emotional Sallie Dornan told the forum.



Moments later, shouting at LeTourneau about "safe sex," she said, apparently referring to her brother: "He told me. He tells me every day. The thinner he gets and the more sores he's covered with."





OMG, that was so sad. NO WONDER SHE CALLED HIM A FAG, GUYS. HER BROTHER WAS DYING OF AIDS! That's about as real as real gets.



Well, except for a couple things that came out in the next couple days.





But the brother, Douglas Richard Hansen, 51, a landscape architect in San Diego, since has told The Times he is not gay, does not have AIDS and has seen his sister only once since their mother's funeral in 1983.



"I'm a healthy 51," said Hansen, who had no visible signs of any illness.





So, the question was out there -- WHY did she think her brother was gay, and WHY did she think he'd gotten AIDS, and WHY did she tell a crowd of 200 people that "He tells me every day" when the truth was, she hadn't talked to him at all for more than five years, and when she had talked to him, he hadn't told her he was gay or nothin', and WHY did she say he was thin and covered with sores when he was a strapping young healthy man of 51 who worked outdoors every dang day?



:confuzzled:



Her brother explained that he had some gay friends, so Bob Dornan turned his own sister against him, and she went along with it for the sake of her marriage to the freak.

Bob Dornan offended a lot of people and often made the news with his racist, sexist name-calling.







He was re-elected twice. He was such an unswerving advocate for the development of the B-1 bomber, that he was soon nicknamed "B-1 Bob





http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Dornan



Granted, Sanchez is better as a Rep than Bob Dornan, but that's a mighty low standard. He was close to certifiable as a mental case. Of course, among the RWNJ's we have in the legislatures and Congress now, he would probably not stand out.

These slip ups by many political candidates are fascinating windows into their minds. Sanchez's paternalistic and condescending views about indigenous Americans is revealed in a moment. The confusion of Republican candidates in grappling with the Iraq War questions shows they know nothing about international politics or the weighty decisions a President must make. And their calculation in extending and revising their remarks shows they are trying to please the lowest common denominators in their party.

She [Sanchez} told reporters after the talk that American Indians have a “great presence in our country and many of them are supporting our election,” the Associated Press reported.



'Nuff said.

Her very announcement that she was running for the Senate was heavy on identity politics. She was going for a dog whistle, wanting to let people know that not all the East Indian Americans are going to support Kamala Harris. But it backfired. As for the Native Americans, are they really so outraged or shocked? More than the chants at Atlanta Braves games? the Florida Seminole Games? at Redskins games? What if they all are so offended that not one votes for Sanchez. what percentage of the state voters are we talking about? I'm trying to find a number, but I expect it to be less that 2% and probably less than 1%.



Hispanics make up about a third of the adult population but only about 15-17% of likely voters and they are not all Democratic voters.



East Indian voters make up a very small percentage of likely voters (less than 1%) .but are able to raise large sums of money for both parties' candidates.



http://www.nfia.net/press.html



This group went all in for Jindal. :sick:



I wish we knew more about the person that Loretta was meeting with and why she though it went so well.



Kamala plays the identity politics game, too. But she's much more polished and subtle about it.



ETA:http://www.huffingtonpost.com/gautam-du ... 47292.html



The author of the piece seems to think she is much too subtle about it. I would be will to bet that almost every Asian Indian American is aware of Kamala Harris' mixed heritage. Where the author goes astray is grouping all Asian Americans together when there is no clear common denominator other than geography.

The person at the event who caught Loretta Sanchez' gaff has been an Kamala Harris supporter in the past but he says he did not go to the event as a plant for her campaign and that he just went there to meet a friend. :rolleyes: Sure, of course, that's why he was there.

Yeah. Some of her best friends have smoked a peace pipe with her in a Teepee.

So Sanchez is effectively putting her House seat (in Orange County!) into play to run for a Senate seat the Dems are guaranteed to win and she is guaranteed to lose. Fucking brilliant.

1. Sanchez also said she was going to run for governor in 2014; she didn't.
2. Sanchez could try to pull a Ryan and simultaneously run for seats in both chambers.
3. (Assuming she's serious) Sanchez actually announced in May, giving the party a reasonable 18 months to groom her replacement. Current declared candidates for her seat are Lou Correa, Jordan Brandman, and Joe Dunn (all democrats).

Got an email today from the L A County Registrar telling me that my June sample ballot was available for download.

There has been some news earlier about the possible confusion in the U S Senate primary - there are 34 candidates, so the L A County ballot requires two pages (there's a punch card which lines up with the names on the ballot).

Well, in attempting to warn the folks about this, they've made it a little more confusing. I extracted the relevant pages from the PDF, but it's 1.5 MB, so I'm sharing it in my dropbox: Sample Ballot - U S Senate

Between pages 3 and 4 there's a page which says "There are 34 candidates for United States Senator listed on two pages
Review both pages before making selection" and has a reduced image of pages 4 and 5. But it isn't showing pages 4 and 5; the candidates are randomly ordered for each precinct, so the order, and punch numbers, on that page don't match the actual pages.
