"Pat ought to take DeYoung to the OC GOP Ethics Committee and ask for a censure"

YOU have got to be kidding....right? Did you not suggest that Pat Bates' association with the the most corrupt members of Congress was OK as long as they got the pork to fund the Terrible Tunnel, or as we like to call it, Bates’ Congestion Relief Leading to Orange County Constipation!

We will lobby to have your picture placed under the definition for demagogue!

Tempted as I am to disregard your strange query since I don't even accept its premise, my answer is No, I did not say that.

Seems like Jubal is pulling a Nguyen on us - I shall retrive the link in question....

As someone who has had direct experience with the OC GOP Ethics Commission, and as someone who is just watching this race via OC Blog I think this is ripe for the Commission.

With such credentials you must also have witnessed lawsuit happy-that-go-nowhere Pâté Bates, unless you also just happen to suffer from that terrible tunnel vision afflicting the Bates’ candidacy!

Whatever happened to being able to change your mind? Isn't it possible that between January and now, Cassie learned something that caused her to reevaluate her toll road position? Like maybe OCTA's 2030 projections, or the congestion projections in the South Orange County Major Investment Study?

It seems like it's impossible for a politician to have a change of heart without a certain sector of the electorate tripping on flip-flops all the live-long day.

AleX:

I'd be interested to see if you were so understanding if she were flip-flopping away from sharing your opposition to completing the 241.

Maybe Cassie will next embrace your notion that building more roads increase congestion.

There you go again Matt, cramming words into my mouth without actually addressing my questions.

All I've ever suggested is that building this 16-mile toll road extension will do nothing to ease congestion and will in fact make said congestion worse.

But if you need to simplify that as much as conceivably possible in order to try and understand it in the context of your conventional wisdom, you do that. Just remember what Freakonomics has to say about conventional wisdom.
