|Does Huizar realize who his doctor is?|
City Councilman Jose Huizar -- the incumbent -- just barely squeaked into office last time around with the narrowest of margins, namely, just 2,096 more than the bare minimum needed to win. Yours truly wrote about this back in August.
Now Huizar has made the dumbest move possible, namely, hiring a dufus named Michael Trujillo to serve as his campaign manager. Trujillo's track record is abysmal. Trujillo is to political campaigns what Jack Kevorkian is to medical care.
Case in point: Trujillo managed to lose the Measure B solar campaign despite having a massive budget, an unfunded opposition, and, for God's sake, solar power on his side. He didn't just lose, dude snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.
|Tuck it in, Sparky. Er, Trujillo.|
His m.o., by the way, is not to explain what, if anything, makes his candidate or position good, but instead to engage in name-calling. He accused the Measure B opponents of lying, and they kicked his ass in court. He called Gavin Newsom sexist for running against Hahn.
So what's Trujillo's strategy against Martinez? You can bet it will consist of nothing more than trash-talk, with zero attempt to explain what Huizar has supposedly done to benefit the City. Then again, since Huizar hasn't done anything at all to help the city, Trujillo doesn't have much to work with, does he?
The good news is this means L.A. will finally get someone from the real world on the City Council, namely, Martinez, and that the so-called political careers of Huizar and Trujillo -- two horrible political hacks -- will be put out of their misery by the electoral Death Panel.
|Can you spot the horse's ass in this pic? That's right: Huizar.|
