    •  One of the biggest disappointments. (6+ / 0-)

      I've a big fan of Charlie Brown.  Including, but not limited to, his exemplary upright posture.  He's an upright guy all the way around.

      •  I should do a picture diary with the out takes (5+ / 0-)

        ... because I cannot see exactly what is in the viewfinder, I'm not capable of plotting to catch somebody in a bad moment, if it happens, it happens....  I don't see the pics until they're up on the screen....  that being said, I can't believe how many times I just pointed, clicked, and prayed, and ended up with a goofy McClintock picture.  Nobody has that sort of luck, this individual just oozes bad karma.
        Here's another one.  This was at this rather last minute candidate's forum south of Grass Valley in Nevada County at this community center on Oct 21, 2008.  The audience was mostly wing- nut special. (Chamber of Commerces are typically not Dem- friendly)  I never wrote this up in a full diary. The moderator starts off and says we're going to stick to the real issues and then the first question is on something like partial- birth abortion, and it went downhill from there, altho I think Charlie did fantastic considering the venue.  What puzzled me was how late this thing went into the evening, yet how quickly some of the MSM got their versions up onto the internet afterwards...  if you get my drift.   From the angle, I can tell I'm over on the left side of the room standing near McClintock's staff when I took this.  The people in earphones seated in the foreground are standard main stream media types.

        Now notice how McClintock is turning red again and is under the fire alarm and no smoking sign.  It's like he's just going through the motions of saying this dumbass hateful crap to get it over with and let himself turn into the next congressperson, and this Brown character is putting a crimp in his plans.  

        NOW we know the reason he thought he had this in the bag anyway, in spite of the polls and his campaign finances being a big effing mess, was because of Prop 8, the Mormon GOTV,  and all the absentee ballots.  People who were voting for him were not giving a damn what he said where, it was is this who we are supposed to vote for because he's the hate mongering style Republican we can bribe later?

      Or mebbe "I'm a big fan..."

      Either way, I let a sloppy typo slip by.  Sorry!

      And either way, a fan of Charlie Brown.  I'm so sorry you didn't get to have such a great guy as your Congressman.
