tongue planted firmly in cheek...
So now Jerry Brown's a force to be reckoned
with in the Presidential race. Well, I for one am not about to
forget the record of our "flakiest" native son!
First and worst, he built-up a surplus in the
California state budget -- a sin neither of his Republican
successors can be accused of. How irresponsible can one man
And who can forget how he delayed
aerial-spraying vs. the Medfly over populated areas until the
last public-health and environmental-impact reports were
completed? That's sick!
He put more women, Latinos, African Americans,
and gays into higher positions of power than any other rich and
powerful, straight, white Gentile guy ever. A discredit to his
He tried to fight crime and poverty not only by
putting more cops on the street but also by founding the
California Conservation Corps and becoming the first
contemporary politician in the national spotlight to stress
education as of primary importance. What a dunce!
He took the unpopular stand of actively opposing
the death penalty, on "personal moral grounds". That's
He chose to live in a modest apartment and drive
his old car instead of living in a luxurious new Governor's
Mansion donated by political cronies and maintained at taxpayer
expense. The man's priorities are all screwed up!
And after leaving office, did he make speeches
for millions or lobby for our international competitors, as is
the fashion? No way! This weirdo spent years contemplating "Zen" riddles of human truth and justice and working with
Mother Theresa in the slums of Calcutta. What arrogance!
Yep. There's no doubt about it -- the worst
thing that could happen to America is for "Governor
Moonbeam" to become "President Moonbeam". Why, he's even
got plans to make taxes and health care more simple and
affordable and to develop alternatives to nuclear power and
foreign oil! Hopeless, ain't he?
