Ed Eochs, [correction: Aaron Ochs] of http://www.ochsnation.blogspot.com/ questioned why no sewer questions were going to be taken during the recent LOCSD candidate's forum. At the link above is his letter to the League of Women Voters, and their reply, for any one interested on the follow up.
Follow up Too
In my previous posting on the recent debate, I fogot to mention a wierd sense of deja vu that came over me when for days at the various McCain/Palin rallies, McCain/Palin have been hammering this guy Ayers and how Obama "pals around with terrorists," and how we have to get to the bottom of this mystery relationship. Terrorist, terrorist, Ayers, pals around, terrorist, Ayers, over and over and over. Then, after briefly bringing it up and getting an answer from Obama, McCain suddenly dismisses Ayers as an old washed up terrorist who has no interest for him.
Remind you of anyone? Like Bush who spent endless time talking about smokin'out Osama, dead or alive, terrorist terrorist terrorist, then when Iraq was going kerblooey and Osama was happily hiding in the Tora Bora hills, Bush suddenly says that , well, frankly, he doesn't spend time thinking about the guy.
Yes, that old Emily Latella "nevermind" moment -- whip the demagogic horse into a fearsome lather so long as it's advancing your agenda, then when it no longer serves, blandly walk away.
