McGill Surging and Jubal Cringing
The noticeable bias over at OCBlog against conservative Assembly candidate Mike McGill has been so blatant that this blogger who doesn’t even live behind the Orange Curtain has stood up and taken notice.
As blogger-in-chief, Mighty Jubal, so often says, over the transom I received the attached communiqué from the McGill campaign yesterday, on-point offsetting much of the criticism that’s plagued McGill’s campaign – namely, that Jim Silva himself is guilty of going clepto on other people’s property in his capacity of an elected official.
Steve Greenhut must be licking his chops.
I’ll leave for others to decide why Jubal has taken such a ferocious approach towards McGill and such a loving one towards Silva, just throwing out the most intriguing theory to come across the CalCampaigns email: that Jubal is none other than former Silva mouthpiece Matt Cunningham.
Whatever the case, the bias is there, and as such, it was no surprise that the OCBlog failed to post this damning piece on Mr. Silva.
Furthermore, irrespective of horses in this race, I’ve been blown over by the progress the McGill campaign has made of late. From nowhere just a few weeks ago, to active engagement with Silva, the prestigious HJTA endorsement, and just recently the endorsement from the CRA – the “Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval” from conservative activists, this guy in playing to win and apparently has quite a few conservatives with him.
McGill’s campaign has been turned around 180-degrees, and while probably not quite yet front-runners, they certainly have the momentum – so much so that Silva’s notorious thin skin led him to send out a reactionary introductory mailer (Dave, correct me if I’m wrong, but probably just a TAD sooner than the original mail schedule called for?).
Having come around from complete disinterest, I’ll be keeping an eye on this race.
