Hedrick rips Calvert’s obession with Pelosi in funny video

Congressman Ken Calvert isn’t the brightest guy out there, but apparently he is so dense that he thinks he is running against Nancy Pelosi.  Many of his campaign mailers have targeted Pelosi instead of his real Democratic opponent, Bill Hedrick.

The Hedrick campaign has responded by releasing a video poking fun at Calvert and his obsession with Pelosi.  Great stuff!  I love a candidate with a sense of humor.

Pelosi does suck, but it is dishonest to try to tie her to Hedrick.  I must admit that I was shocked when the Democratic Party of Orange County brought her here to raise money for them, in 2009.  She has the highest negative ratings of any House Speaker – in history!

Here is the Hedrick campaign’s official press release about the new video:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 22, 2010 CONTACT: Kristopher Daams, o. (951) 359-6400, c. (661) 373-0792

New Hedrick Video Parodies Calvert Campaign Strategy
Hedrick Campaign ‘Educational’ Video to Clear Calvert’s Confusion

(Riverside) – A new video by the Bill Hedrick for Congress campaign parodies the strategy of U.S. Rep. Ken Calvert’s campaign as Election Day approaches in less than two weeks.

The video, entitled “Bill Hedrick: Not Nancy Pelosi,” mocks the strategy being attempted by Calvert – trying to direct voter attention away from his abuse of earmarks and contentious land deals, to the nation-wide Republican strategy of talking about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco). As the video points out to Calvert: while Pelosi has become a centerpiece of Calvert’s yard signs, mail pieces and bumper stickers, it is Hedrick running against him in California’s 44th Congressional District, which is located 440 miles south of Pelosi’s district.

“Bill Hedrick wants to talk about real issues, like creating new jobs in Riverside and Orange counties,” Hedrick campaign manager Katie Mantz says narrating the video. “Ken Calvert wants to talk about…Nancy Pelosi.”

Bill Hedrick has dedicated 35 years to teaching our children and advocating for educators in our public schools. He currently serves on the Corona-Norco Unified School District Board of Education, overseeing the 8th largest school district in California, serving 53,000 students. Bill is the board’s longest serving member at 22 years and has served five terms as president. In 2008, he came within 3,100 votes of unseating Congressman Ken Calvert, making the 2010 rematch for California’s 44th Congressional District one of the most competitive in the state.
