Fight, Fight, Fight!

Last week, California state lawmakers passed a budget plan on time but it was not without a little push and shove.   A small fight between Assemblyman Warren Furutani (D-Gardena) and Assemblyman Don Wagner (R-Irvine) broke out on the Assembly floor, Wednesday afternoon.

It all started when Assemblyman Wagner compared the bill to the HBO hit “The Sopranos.” He said, “Let’s not buy the insurance policy that Tony Soprano is selling us.”

Then, Assemblyman Anthony Portantino, D-La Cañada Flintridge, stood up, saying he was offended by Wagner’s comments. “As a proud Italian-American, I resent that and would respectfully ask the commenter to make an apology to Italian-Americans in California.”

Wagner took the bait, saying, “I will apologize to any Italian-Americans that are not in the Mafia and engaged in insurance scams.”

That comment brought murmuring from the Assembly floor, prompting Wagner to go even further. “My apology is sincere,” said Assemblyman Wagner. “My reference is not lost on anyone here. This is not an attack on anyone. This bill is a bait-and-switch.”

The speaker tried to move the conversation on, but then Assemblyman Warren Furutani confronted Assemblyman Wagner. The two had to be broken up by colleagues.

Eventually, the redevelopment bills were passed and handed over to Governor Jerry Brown.

El Dorado County Supervisor Meeting

A major outburst took place at the El Dorado County Supervisors meeting on April 25th 2011. According to KCRA 3, the shouting match happened as Sheriff John D’Agostini was addressing the board about the budget.

On the video, Supervisor Ron Briggs says to the sheriff “I’m tired of you” and “you’re damn arrogant.” To which the sheriff replied, “I have a business to run.”

Shouting ensues and the meeting was almost stopped because of the outburst. Supervisor Briggs said he doesn’t regret what he said, and the incident was just a little spat.

Gloria Allred’s Baseball Bat Demonstration

At the San Francisco Giants baseball game on April 23rd, there was an ‘incident’ thanks to Roger McDowell, a pitching coach for the Atlanta Braves. Atty Gloria Allred is so outraged over McDowell’s actions, made in front of two 9 year old twin girls, that she uses her press conference to do exactly what she claims McDowell did. Skip to the final :30 for her unforgettable re-enactment:


“There Are Two Meg Whitmans”

Craigslist CEO Jim Buckmaster testified under oath, in a Deleware court in December of 2009, that e-bay Executive Garret Price warned Buckmaster in a 2004 e-mail about Meg Whitman’s character.

Buckmaster explains, “…he (Price) needed to tell me that there are two Meg Whitmans. We had met and enjoyed working with and had reached an agreement with what he described as the good Meg. But there was another Meg, an evil Meg, and that we would be best served if we got with the program or we were going to meet evil Meg, and that Meg could be a monster when she got angry and got frustrated.”

Meg Whitman is currently running as the Republican candidate for California Governor.


Snookigate 2010

President Obama appeared on ABC Television’s “The View” last Thursday. When asked a question about Snooki, he claimed to have no idea who she is. However, two months ago he seemed to know exactly who she was.

Watch the video and draw your own conclusion. Does President Obama need to be checked for  early stages of Alzheimers Disease? Does President Obama just say whatever is written for him without ever knowing what he’s talking about?  Is the President hiding a secret affair with Snooki? You be the judge:


By the way, Snooki is a woman on an MTV show called “Jersey Shore”.

Huckabee Report

The Huckabee Report by former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee is heard four times every weekday on KVML. The four minute report can be heard at 6:35, 7:35 and 8:35am during “All News, All Morning” and also at 12:30pm, during the Sean Hannity show.

Fiorina Caught On Open Mic

Carly Fiorina was in Los Angeles, preparing to do an interview with News 10 in Sacramento, when she started to speak off the cuff about Meg Whitman, Sean Hannity and Barbara Boxer. Whitman spends  the first minute wondering why Whitman would go onto the Sean Hannity show. Fiorina seems to think that Hannity is not a show that a Republican candidate should appear on as “he is a hard interview”. Fiorina eventually goes on to make fun of Barbara Boxer’s hair style. Sean Hannity is heard on KVML every weekday from Noon – 3pm.


Schwarzenegger Makes Fun Of Rush

California Republican Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger yucked it up with a crowd Friday night by making fun of Mel Gibson’s anger issues and Rush Limbaugh’s weight problems. Limbaugh is heard on KVML  every weekday from 9AM through Noon. Schwarzenegger, who’s Father was a Nazi,  is barely understandable through his Austrian accent. He struggles with basic English. Making fun of people with personal problems for cheap laughs, seems all too easy for this steriod using, pot smoker. Governor Schwarzenegger is an admitted womanizer, who didn’t even bother to attend his own brother’s funeral in 1971, but it would be uncool to point out his shortcomings for a hearty laugh:
