Dear Readers: The California Senate Race is one of the critical “Tea Party” races this November. Therefore, I would like to encourage every Tea Party participant who cares about electing solid conservatives into national positions to consider donating to Chuck Devore today (the California Assemblyman running for the U.S. Senate).
Assemblyman Devore, U.S. Army Reserves: Armed Services Day Message: Freedom Isn’t Free
I have wanted Babs Boxer gone from the U.S. Senate for quite some time, but never so much as I did after her treatment of Brig. Gen. Michael Walsh, with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. General Walsh was testifying on the Louisiana coastal restoration process in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. He began to answer one of Boxer’s questions with “ma’am” when Boxer immediately cut him off….
A heady mixture of arrogance, disdain, and pomposity, indeed! The sheer scale of egotism is hard to match, even in this administration. Her conceit surpasses that of Arlen Specter! Her manipulation of the federal bureaucracy rivals that of Chris Dodd! She is certainly more hapless than Blanche Lincoln! Dodd is out for certain this November, and Specter and Lincoln are likely to follow. Why don’t we Californians add the the joy of our fellow Americans by excising Boxer, too. Our countrymen will thank us as surely as they are thanking the Bay Staters now.
I have met Assemblyman Devore during a public meeting. This Democrat is IMPRESSED! He kindly answered detailed questions about the California budget, highlighting the areas for the California Tea Parties to focus on during our discussion. He enthusiastically participated in all the citizen action rallies through the state, as much as his time would permit. He exudes a wonderful combination of charisma, intelligence, and genuine warmth. Devore would be quite the palate cleanser after Babs.
If you wonder why I highlight the fact I am a Democrat in my posts recommending Devore, it is because the state Republican machinery has deemed him “unacceptable” to Democrats. They are striving to promote Carly Fiorina or Tom Campbell for the June primary. Therefore, Assemblyman Devore needs a little Tea Party assistance, as he is clearly NOT “the establishment candidate”.
Why is the California GOP doing this? I am no insider, but I suspect that it because the state GOP leadership is cheap, unimaginative, and corrupt….and I say this with love! 🙂 The two other candidates come with a bankroll and a bunch of lackeys, so the state GOP leadership can continue to pursue its own special interests without much effort. I will let the following links make my case:

(MUT Note: A very conservative friend voted for Diane Feinstein over Tom Campbell in his last senate race — explaining that Feinstein was the more conservative of the two).

Let’s compare those items to the Huffington Posts stinging condemnation of Devore:
The assemblyman does check off the majority of boxes on the conservative purity test. He has a full pro-life record, opposed the stimulus package and the bank bailout, and has never met a tax cut he didn’t like. His most famous moment in office may, in fact, have occurred when he resigned from his position as Chief Republican Whip out of anger over a tax increase agreed to by California’s Republican leadership.
So far, this free-market-embracing Democratic capitalist finds a lot to like! While the Assemblyman and I may not agree on all matters, the key ones covering finance, spending, and national security are 100% spot on. With the debts climbing, and the middle class taxes set to increase, Devore can be an important voice in the Senate — and, perhaps, beyond.
BONUS — Devore is obviously very well dressed (re: TEA PARTY SHOCKER! Babs Boxer Says We Dress too Well to be Real!)

CHICAGO TV blacking out Lech Walesa? “Unfortunately for Chicago residents, and the Polish community specifically, if you get your news from the city’s local television stations, you might not have even known that he was in town, let alone that he attended a Tea Party, and endorsed Adam Andrzejewski for governor.”
