Recall Jerry Brown

California Republicans need to get off defense and start playing offense. They need to throw the long bomb.

Thank you for reading this post, don't forget to subscribe!

They need to imitate the Oakland Raiders of the 1970s under quarterback Ken “The Snake” Stabler, cornerback Skip “Dr. Death” Thomas, wide receiver Fred Biletnikoff, offensive tackle Art Shell and Coach John Madden. Not the pathetic Raiders of the recent years of principal owner Al Davis’ meddling senescence.

The Classic Raiders were junkyard dogs who took chances and won. As linebacker Phil “Foo” Villapiano said, “When you play for the Raiders you play to win and you play tough.”

The first “long bomb” Republicans should throw is to start a recall of Gov. Jerry Brown. Now.

That would set him reeling on the defensive. Remember how Gov. Gray Davis, once the recall began against him in 2003, started stammering like Ralph Kramden (Jackie Gleason) when he got nervous on the old “Honeymooners” TV show, “Hamamamamamahamama”? Davis’ administration shut down. What fun.

The whole 2003 recall was fun. It turned out badly when Gov. Arnold “Adulterinator” Schwarzenegger won the simultaneous replacement election and, after two so-so years, panicked like a wimp after he lost his 2005 reform election. Then the Austrian Oaf turned his governorship over to wife Maria and we got Kennedy Government for the next five years.

But so what? Arnold’s gone. His main celebrity project now is Divorce Court. He can’t ruin another recall.

It doesn’t even matter if Brown could be unseated. Just challenging him would take the air out of his governorship for four months or more. He would have to take a break from his tax-increase obsession

A recall costs about $2 million to circulate the petitions. That’s not chump change, especially in the depths of the Obama Depression. But there are enough Republican moneybags around to raise the cash.

Moreover, for wealthy Republicans considering a run for statewide office or U.S. Congress, ponying up some serious cash for a Recall Jerry Brown effort should be the opening ante of their campaigns. Put up or shut up, boys.

There are a lot of ways a Recall Jerry Brown campaign would be fun. For one thing, it would scramble the plans of Brown’s potential successors. Remember how Democratic candidates, such as then-Insurance Commissioner John Garamendi – now a U.S. Congressman – first started campaigning in the replacement election, then were told to quit or face reprisals? Garamendi, a fan of Cuba’s socialized medicine system, obeyed.

In the end, the only serious Democrat to stay in the repelacement election was Lt. Gov. Cruze Bustamante, campaigning on the hilarious theme, “No on Recall, Yes on Bustamante.” A couple of years later, Cruisin’ Cruz campaigned for insurance commissioner on a platform of his diet program. Perhaps, in a new recall, he could come out of his lucrative retirement as a lobbyist to run again on his slimming scheme.

And remember the entertaining candidates, 135 of them? Gary Coleman, alas, no longer is with us. Arianna Huffington probably would run again. New campaign theme: “This time, dummies, elect the right immigrant.”

After selling the Huffington Post to America Online for $315 million, she sits on a lot more dough than when she was just blowing her alimony from her ex-hubby, GOP ex-Rep. Michael Huffington.

This is a family publication. So decorum prevents me from mentioning the names of some of the indecent candidates who ran. But they did add to the recall’s circus atmosphere.

In a Brown Recall, we could see run:

* Meg Whitman. Hey, it’s been almost a year since she blew $183,000,000.00 on her previous losing campaign. Maybe she’s defrosted a little.

* Steve Poizner, who lost to Meg in the 2010 GOP primary. He’s had another year to move from his tax-increase past.

* Rep. Tom McClintock, who would have won in the 2003 recall if silly Republicans hadn’t backed Kennedy Klone Arnold.

* “Unable” Abel Maldonado, the former Light Gov. who was appointed to that pointless post by Arnold. It was a reward for Maldonado, as a state senator, selling out the taxpayers on Arnold’s record, $13 billion 2009 Kennedy Klone tax increase.

* Carly Simon – excuse me, that’s how I always think of her – Carly Fiorina, who lost last year’s U.S. Senate race to Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Pyongyang).

* B-1 “Bob” Dornan, the former U.S. congressman and victim of logorrhea. He’s always amusing, even though he needs an “off” button we can push.

But Democrats also might run against a septuaginarian governor who, even in 2010, ran a campaign too far. In addition to the above-mentioned Cruzinator, these Donkey Party hopefuls might include:

* Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, currently in a duel with Brown over who can come up with the more pointless “jobs creation” program, when their own high-tax, sky-high regulation policies are to blame for Joblessfornia.

* Attorney General Kamala Harris, the California Vyshinsky. She’s so Left she makes Brown look like Reagan.

* Los Angeles Mayor Tony Villar (a/k/a Antonio Villaraigosa), who just took a pot shot at Brown by calling for gutting Proposition 13 and jacking up property taxes on businesses. Having cast the City of Angeles into the Inferno, he seeks to melt down the Golden State.

So, Elephants, what are you waiting for?

Recall Jerry Brown.

  1. Very amusing. Enjoyed. Good luck with the idea.

  2. THE BIGGEST MOST HORRIFYING PROBLEM WE HAVE IN CA. AND MANY OTHER STATES IN AMERICA TOO, IS THAT THE LEADERS OF THE ELEPHANT PARTY ARE NOTHING BUT A BUNCH OF WIMPS WHO ARE AFRAID TO DO ANYTHING AT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THESE GOOD FOR NOTHING ELECTED OFFICIALS, ARE ALWAYS ON THE DEFENSE IF THAT, THEY ONLY HAVE A HUGE MOUTH JUST TO COMPLAIN ABOUT THE PROBLEMS BUT NO GUTTS WHATSOEVER!!.. UNLESS THESE CLOWNS CHANGE TACTICS AND GO ON THE OFFENSE FOR A CHANGE, WE ELEPHANTS CAN KISS OUR FAT ASS GOODBY! THANKS FOR NOTHING YOU PUSSY CATS!!!

    • Why the screaming? It’s clear the donkey is living up to it’s status as the @ss. Giving citizen money to illegals after he’s been trying his hardest to raise taxes on American citizens , taking money from the handicapped and helpless to give money to illegals is deplorable and despicable to say the least.

  3. With consideration, Governor Bown is the last democrat to out from our otherwise socialist progressive-infested state government. Why not start with Constitutinal violators like state congressmen DeLeon, Portantino, Fuerer,Leno, or every sodomites delight S.F. Mayor Newsom. Federal offenders like Boxer and Feinstein and talking wooden head Maxine Waters go without saying. Know-betters like these, who have the time and effort to push unwanted, unmerited and costly social experiments have no time or interest in budget responsibility.People like these actually impede Brown from advancing fiscal reform, that nessesarily will reduce the size and scope of an unsustainable intrusive central government. Brown does not fit their agenda of spending taxes to achieve utopia. Have you noticed withdrawl symtoms in Sacramento? If so, I hope you relished them.

    First of all, I can’t believe that Jerry Brown is actually our governor in light of his past history. Now that he is, he’s enacting laws that are continuing to bankrupt our already struggling state. What’s wrong with this man!!! Is he crazy. Giving illegal aliens college tuition when my 4 children didn’t have any help from the state for their education. I’m furious! California’s illegal aliens are why our state is going bankrupt. I’m sorry for the children of illegals who were born here, but that should not be the problem of the taxpayers. Now Jerry Brown wants to put regulations on people who hire housekeepers and babysitters. Is he nuts! He obviously knows nothing about economics. Why is it democrats want to tax and over-regulate everything! Now a parent can’t even hire a babysitter without worrying that she/he has followed the new rules. And of course, the public unions who love Brown are also part of our states financial problems. I’m not against all unions per se, but I am against public, taxpayer-funded unions. They work for me and don’t deserve collective bargaining rights. The taxpayers are the ones who should have the say since they support these unions which are costing us millions. California is going down, people are leaving our state and families feel like we are a “family unfriendly” state. I’m sick of it!

    Where do we send our recall contributions. Let’s get the ball rolling. This clown needs to thrown out!!

  6. JB signed the Dream Act AB 131. How do we recall him ASAP.

  7. If the GOP can’t take advantage of the vaccine bill anger, anger over the green Nazi’s in Sacremanto withholding water, $ 40 billion on a high speed rail that won’t even be high speed, no money left over to build badly needed desalt plants… Good Lord, they are practically handing the GOP a majority.
