OH NO YOU DI ENT.
Sometimes, I meet Democrats who seem to be misguided, but genuinely good people just wanting to make America into what they think is a better country.
And then sometimes, there are the rest of them. Like the guy running for Governor in California. Seems he thinks it’s okay to call someone names, if it convinces people to vote for him.
Now as a guy, I gotta tell you that this particular insult hits very close to home for a lot of women — whether or not it’s true. Think about it, how many times have you seen a catfight devolve straight into questioning each others’ chastity?
Yeah, I’ve seen that too. I’m guessing ol’ Jerry has seen that too.
Well now is as good a time as any to relive the glory days, on how Governor Moonbeam got that nickname — one bad turn, and all…
The year was 1979. Jerry was the starry-eyed governor of California, and dating what passed for a rock star in Linda Ronstadt. The lady (I guess) gave an interview to Rolling Stone, in which she spilled the beans on her humorous pet name for the Guvnah — “Moonbeam.” Chicago Tribune columnist Mike Royko pounced:
“I long ago gave up trying to figure out what Gov. Moonbeam stands for or believes in,” Mr. Royko wrote in April 1979, “besides getting his pretty mug on TV and confusing people into voting for him.” He added that Mr. Brown was an “intellectual hustler,” who “can jabber so nimbly that no one can figure what he’s talking about.”
So there ya go. California’s King Dingaling got his nickname from a rock-star girlfriend in the late seventies, and his reputation for being a gutless hack from his many years of practicing that behavior in public.
So my question for the Dems is this: In a deep, dark blue state…this is the best you could do? Gavin Newsom lost to this dude?
Boy, you deserve everything you get, don’t you?
