    But she has never done anything to make anyone think she has anything above a below-average IQ.

    •  That's kinda lame, my friend. (5+ / 0-)

      You've been insulting a Democratic candidate multiple times here, calling her stupid. All I asked is for you to tell me why it is that you think she is stupid. What has she ever said or done that convinced you of her stupidity? Now I'm thinking that you may be just trashing her.

        He's trying to shift the burden that is clearly on him, as the accuser, to come up with an example.  He can't, because his entire approach is ad hominem and non-substantive.  And hence, pathetic.  Glad that you and others here have called him on it.

          I did which shows that he and Bowen know each other, and that no less than 5 different times in this thread he has called Hahn stupid. I hope that Debra Bowen calls her friend and lets him know that this is not how she rolls. I don't know any of these people, but calling Hahn stupid is really horrible if you've got no reason other than that she's not your candidate.

          •  As I've noted elsewhere in this thread (0+ / 0-)

            This fellow's approach is about non-substantive unsubstantiated juvenile name-calling.  Others have called him on it, and get responses of more of the same unoriginal names, or silence, which would be preferable.

            I repeatedly told the truth about Hahn's brain being as empty as her suit during the Lt. Governor campaign when I was so critical of her opponent that I was quoted in a major cover story about him. I ended up voting for him despite how much I hate him because next to Hahn he looked like a fricking rocket scientist. While you might not be able to find it on google, I'm pretty sure you can find people who will attest that I mocked Hahn's stupidity after she lost #CA36 to the GOP over a decade ago.

            I'm not calling Hahn dumb because she's running against Bowen, I'm continuing to point out she's an idiot because she hasn't gotten any smarter since her last failure. At her age, I don't expect she ever will get smarter.

          •  Bob has always been, imo, (0+ / 0-)

            a dishonest hack of a political operative.

            •  I take that as a huge compliment (0+ / 0-)

              I don't think I've ever read anything where you weren't exactly dead wrong. If I were the GOP and I wanted to pay people to troll Democratic blogs to give the worst possible advice, I'd train them by having them watch how you operate.

    •  There is no reason to trash another candidate (5+ / 0-)

      I think your repeated comments are not going to help Debra Bowen, she doesn't need help like that.

      I know both candidates and both would be an improvement over Jane Harmen.

      How would you feel if the choice in some future election between a tea party Republican and Janice Hahn? Would you really go around trash talking like this?

      I call it "the Breathing Syndrome." When Obama breathes in, they will criticize him for using air. When he exhales, they will complain about pollution. If he holds his breath, they will attack him for doing nothing.
