Getting nasty...

...politically, that is.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. - A candidate for the California state Assembly says voters should pick him because his opponent — a heart transplant recipient — could die in office.

"Can you imagine the costs to taxpayers for a special election when poor health renders him unable to fulfill the duties of office?" former Modesto City Councilman Bill Conrad wrote in a mailing to voters. "Republicans deserve a strong candidate ...."

Conrad faces Tom Berryhill in the GOP primary for the 25th Assembly District. The primary is June 6.

The mailer says in bold red letters, "Tom Berryhill doesn't have the HEART for State Assembly," and suggests that he might not survive the two-year term if elected because he had a heart transplant five years ago.
But then, it is California.

I live in the district, Berryhill is a complete moron who needed a transplant because he wrecked his heart with cocaine. He has no business beign in elected office.

That's politics for ya..."complete moron" who "wrecked his heart with cocaine." (Apparently the pesticides and herbicides that the news story said wrecked his heart actually had no effect.)

Whatever. I guess I don't care. I don't live there, so whoever they elect, more power to them.

I just have a hard time seeing how a complete moron could have such solid endorsements.
