Every OVSD voter owes a huge debt of gratitude to 47th district Republican Congressional candidate, David Clifford.
Clifford lost his primary race against carpetbagging John F. Briscoe, who pulled every ratty campaign sign he ever paid for out of his storage facility and plastered them all over a Congressional District he dosent even live in.
Clifford and I shared a good laugh, as it appeared as though some of Briscoes campaign signs had been fabricated in the Vietnam war era, and were dirty and bent to shit.
Unfortunately, many uniformed voters cast their votes for the guy with the most signs or glossiest mailers…
If any of these “Low Information” voters had bothered to investigate Briscoe, they would have arrived at the same opinion as me….that this man is an unqualified loon, unfit for ANY office, let alone a Congressional one.
Clifford did fantastic in his rookie outing, garnering the endorsements of both the LA and OC County GOP…the same ones that avoided Briscoe like that smelly bum that sits down next to you on a bus, causing you to get up and move to avoid his insane ramblings and noticeable stench.
The utter irony in all this?
Although we lost an opportunity to field a solid candidate against Lowenthal in the 47th, we gained something good in the process.
Since Briscoe is now running in the Congressional General Election, he cannot run for OVSD again.
That seat will now open up for a true conservative.
And Briscoe will he embarrassingly trounced by Lowenthal come November.
Which means….Briscoe is finished politically.
As he should be.
This man isn’t qualified to run for dog catcher, let alone congress.
Clifford, on the other hand,has a bright future in the coming years,as he learns the ropes and continues to garner support for his next run.
To the Republicans in the 47th, I don’t say you need to vote for Lowenthal. When you hit that spot on your ballot, just keep going, and leave it blank.
Don’t reward Briscoe with even one vote.
Push him out the political door forever, where he belongs.
And to anybody that endorses Briscoe in this race, I have a long memory. To endorse this asshat simply because he is the “Republican” in the race, I not much different than endorsing Alfred E. Newman because their is an R next to his name.
Consider this fair warning.
