A Bubbling Cauldron

While the county's major political blogs (OC Blog, the Liberal OC and Orange Juice!) rely on a stable of contributors for their hell-raising, the only writer for A Bubbling Cauldron is Geoff West, who (of course) calls himself the Pot Stirrer. Apart from clichés, that's what he's done with Costa Mesa and Newport Beach politics for the past two years, taking on the old money of the latter as well as the dangerous specter of racialism that's infected Costa Mesa politics. West writes with wit, outrage, investigative gusto and—most important and unlike the Big Three—doesn't have a horse in the race other than a genuine desire to turn the rascals out.
