AD74 Watch: Karina Onofre Channels Napoleon Dynamite

Posted by Scott Carpenter on May 21, 2014

Being that I don’t live in Assembly District 74 I haven’t be privileged to receive the onslaught of mailers from the various candidates in the race. I’ve relied largely on this blog and Allan Bartlett’s blog  for info on the race. I did post previously on this race because of the pure entertainment value the “Feet to the Fire” forum provided. But since then all I have been able to see is the mailers and slates being posted, and of course the various articles about Karina Onofre trying to bring the Clippers to Orange County. As a Clipper fan I would love that, however I don’t see it as a realistic possibility at least in the next five years.

That was until a former co-worker of mine, sent me a message on facebook: “Scott, did you see the latest? Leadership – I will help you reach your dreams! That’s part of Karina “Karina” Onofre’s platform now” I immediately though “WHAT? THAT’S FROM NAPOLEON DYNAMITE!” So I had to see for myself, and sure enough on her facebook page there it is, right in her platform on her cover photo in the third bullet point:

For those of you who don’t remember the movie, its from Napoleon’s buddy Pedro’s famous speech while running for Student Body President.

Part of me is really glad SOMEBODY finally incorporated Pedro’s famous tag line into an actual political campaign, candidates have been missing out on this piece of gold for nearly a decade!

Prepare to be Entertained: The AD 74 “Feet to the Fire” Candidate Forum

Posted by Scott Carpenter on May 9, 2014

Chris Nguyen gave a great play by play on the lively forum that featured the candidates running for Assembly District 74. After reading it and following tweets by Allan Bartlett, I HAD to see the video. Lucky for me Jack Wu had tipped me off that the event had been taped. Last night I came across the YouTube video and watched the whole thing. It is incredibly entertaining…I’ll leave it at this: it was very lively and you will be able to see why.

Working Together to Raise Our Taxes??

Posted by Thomas Gordon on May 29, 2012

Why would Northern California’s Charles Munger Jr spend more than 500K of his own money on a race more than 400 miles from home?

The signs pictured above are littered all over Costa Mesa, Huntington Beach and Newport Beach and appear to show Newport Beach Council Member Leslie Daigle and Bob Rush working together.

How so?

Not only were the signs printed at the same sign shop, but they were hung by the same political sign installer at the exact same time?

Coordinated effort?

Let us know if you are willing to send either to Sacramento and trust that they will hold the line on higher taxes.
