Well, it’s not like Long Beach’s Belmont Shore is near the water anyway ….
Yep, seriously: here is CA-47 candidate Gary DeLong — AND NOT AN ACTOR PRETENDING TO BE HIM — denying the scientific evidence on climate change at a public forum:
This guy wants to be a legislator, sent from an educated and scientifically advanced state, of the most powerful country in the world. By Grapthar’s Hammer, this dude is teh dumb!
By the way: Cambodians in Long Beach — I know that those in your home country are extremely concerned about rising sea levels flooding your coastal areas; you should understand that Gary DeLong thinks that you’re just overreacting. Vietnamese here in OC — you have some coastal areas of your own that you’re concerned about, don’t you? This guy’s going to let the problem get worse. Amazing. Look for Vietnamese language ads to come out against him soon. The rest of the world outside of his district — including, say, Seal, Huntington, Newport and Laguna Beaches — can’t be quite as unconcerned as he can.
For those of you who are keeping track, this means that this one below is now only the second-most embarrassing Gary DeLong video of the year.
(That’s the video where he grabs away a woman’s cell phone for taking video after a candidate forum had ended. DeLong’s staff start going berserk on her at a little after the 4:40 point in the video, when he is asked a question about Prop 30, and call a cop to remove her. Hilarity ensues. If you haven’t heard the whole thing, the antics by these adults in Gary DeLong’s employ are amazing. Embarrassing, even — one would think. But still not as bad as denial of climate change!)
