Weekend Open Thread: The Political Blog Commenter Love That Dare Not Speak Its Name

Anonymous CommentsHere’s a nice weekend project for all of you out there who are just lolling (or LOL-ing) around.

I had started, back on February 9 or 10, to collect all of the comments on the CunningBlog  (aka “Anaheim Blog”) celebrating Don Wagner and slamming John Moorlach and his supporters such as Tom Tait, Shawn Nelson, and our own Cynthia Ward — but doing so anonymously.

Obviously, I didn’t get very far.  So I’m asking you to go over to AnaheimBlog — if you would like, and you don’t mind Matt having your IP Address, you can use the link near the bottom left of our home page under “California Blogs” that is labeled “Anahamster” — and start maybe back at the beginning of February and see what classic gems like these you can collect.  Put them in comments (so that you get credit for your work) and we’ll copy them up here.  Remember, anonymous comments only!  Do not disobey my instructions!  (Unless you want to, in which event go ahead.)  Let’s try to have a nice rich collection compiled by the time that John Moorlach is sworn in Sunday at 4:00 in Tustin.

This, by the way, is your Weekend Open Thread.  Talk about that, or whatever else you’d like, within reasonable bounds of discretion, decency, and decorum.

Pro-Wagner comments from the CunningBlog:
Mister Mister

It’s sad that Shawn Nelson and Tom Tait are backing a career elected official like Moorlach over a conservative party-builder like Don Wagner. But it’s not surprising because all three of them are all about themselves, not building the party or the cause.

Go Wagner!

One Who Knows Better

The “Wagner’s not a conservative noise” is coming from wingnuts like Deb Pauley (who is conservative when it suits her) and Art Pedroza, who is neither a Republican nor a conservative. Pedroza can’t even help contradicting himself from post to post as he blasts Wagner. They should be ignored.

Wagner has a rock-solid conservative record by any measure. He works to help elect other Republicans. The only person John Moorlach tries to help is himself. Three terms in the Senate from a deep-red district like the 37th would be totally wasted on Moorlach.

 See you at the swearing-in!  (Maybe.)

About Greg Diamond

Somewhat verbose attorney, semi-retired due to disability, residing in northwest Brea. Occasionally runs for office against bad people who would otherwise go unopposed. Got 45% of the vote against Bob Huff for State Senate in 2012; Josh Newman then won the seat in 2016. In 2014 became the first attorney to challenge OCDA Tony Rackauckas since 2002; Todd Spitzer then won that seat in 2018. Every time he's run against some rotten incumbent, the *next* person to challenge them wins! He's OK with that. Corrupt party hacks hate him. He's OK with that too. He does advise some local campaigns informally and (so far) without compensation. (If that last bit changes, he will declare the interest.)
