Imported Shill Speaks Out
Monday's Public Hearing on Jim Righeimer's Charter is a gift that just keeps on giving.
DAYTON IN THE DAILY PILOT
Today, imported shill Kevin Dayton - the guy who almost incited a riot - produced a commentary that is published online in the Daily Pilot, HERE, and will also appear sometime in the next couple days in print, according to the editors.
I AGREE WITH HIS LAST PARAGRAPH
I think clarity would be best served if you read his commentary yourself rather than me being accused of trying to spin anything he wrote - even though much of it is ripe for spinning. I will say, though, that I agree 100% with his final paragraph:
"To the Costa Mesa police force: Thank you for your professionalism during the "near riot." You balanced the rights of the people with the need to restore order. The city should be proud of you."
CMPD STAFF WERE REAL PROS
We SHOULD be proud of the officers in the auditorium that night because they displayed professionalism and restraint in a situation that could have gotten very nasty.
AFTER YOU READ IT, WATCH HIM AGAIN...
So, after you read Dayton's epistle, take 9 minutes again to watch him in action at the council meeting Monday night. Pay particular attention to the last few seconds of this clip. What you don't see is his antagonistic posturing as he approached his seat. He looked EXACTLY like the critter in the image I've provided for your viewing pleasure. Clearly, this is probably not the last we've heard from him as he pontificates on issues in which he has no vested interest from the safety of his bunker in Sacramento.
