Watching Noses Grow
Over at Hypocrite Central - the CM Press - the author of that blog posted an entry today that made me laugh out loud. The poor deluded guy used an image to illustrate the point of his commentary which shows the cover of a publication entitled, "The Rise Of Political Lying", which includes a cover image of a speaker with a long nose, ala Pinocchio. What a joke!
This guy - in almost every post he publishes - fabricates, obfuscates and twists issues and events to meet his insidious objective of "purifying" our society. The thread of "if it ain't white, it ain't right" runs throughout his work and guides his actions, much to the detriment of the residents of this city.
BUSINESS AND QUALITY OF LIFE QUESTIONS?
Tonight, at the Costa Mesa City Hall, all nine candidates for the three seats available this year will field questions posed by representatives of the Chamber of Commerce and the Daily Pilot - our local newspaper of record for nearly a century. I have no idea the nature of those questions, but I suspect they may have much to do with business in our city and, perhaps, crime and other quality of life issues.
MR. U. KNOW-WHO LURKS
Certainly, the author of the CM Press - a man who refers to himself as "Mr. U. Know-Who" - will likely present himself as an observer, wearing his usual Gestapoesque black outfit and perch in "his" seat in the dimly-lit far, far right rear corner of the auditorium - how poetically perfect!
KEEPING HIS CREW IN LINE
I suspect he wants to keep an eye on his chosen troika of Righeimer, Bever and Monahan, just in case they might stray from the party line. I'm sure he will want to be there to cheer them on as they attack Katrina Foley, as he has done almost without letup since her election to the City Council four years ago.
It's easy to speculate about what his problem is when it comes to Foley. She's clearly the smartest member of our current City Council and, although in the minority, doesn't hesitate to speak her view on every important issue. Even more important, she doesn't buy into Mr. U. Know-Who's mantra of manipulation unlike other members of the council. She's not willing to just stand idly by as the current majority attempts to turn our city into one in which children, seniors and ethnic minorities receive short shrift.
A RACIST AND A SEXIST, TOO?
I used to think Mr. U. Know-Who was just a racist - if it's possible to be JUST a racist - but I suspect he may be a sexist, too. He sure does seem to have trouble with women who are willing to take a stand on issues and present their views for the residents to consider. And, of course, he openly supports a small segment of our society where women are relegated into subservient roles.
LOOK FOR GRUMPY GUY
If you attend the meeting tonight, look for Mr. U. Know-Who... he's be the scowling presence lurking in the shadows in the back corner of the room.
WATCH ON TV IF YOU CANNOT ATTEND
If you can't attend, the proceedings will be televised live on Channel 24, CMTV and will be shown later on tape several times before the election.
