When Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin addressed a 2008 Disneyland hotel crowd in Anaheim with an intoxicated, sleepy-looking Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (R-Costa Mesa) she spoke passionately of her Christian conservative, Biblical values.
Nowadays, Palin--who remains popular among Southern California's conservatives despite being trounced at the national polls and embarrassed in a network TV drama--has expanded traditional values to include making public dick and boob jokes.
Today, attendees of a conservative Baltimore conference laughably loaded with a long line of right-wing African Americans speakers, heard Palin--the former Alaska governor and fired Fox New commentator--say that her husband "has the rifle" and she has "the rack."
The self-righteous, suit-wearing crowd that normally shows utter disgust with anything non-traditional laughed.
Don't worry. Things eventually returned to normal at the conference. That's when Texas senator Ted Cruz, a politician with two boobs and no recognizable bat, errr rifle, addressed the crowd.
"We're winning right now," he declared.
Then, still later and continuing the nuttiness, Ann Coulter proudly claimed that Mitt Romney did "astronomically well" with young, African American males in the last election.
R. Scott Moxley’s award-winning investigative journalism has touched nerves for two decades. An angry congressman threatened to break Moxley’s knee caps. A dirty sheriff promised his critical reporting was irrelevant and then landed in prison. Corporate crooks won’t take his calls. Murderous gangsters mad-dogged him in court. The U.S. House of Representatives debated his work. Pusillanimous cops have left hostile messages using fake names. Federal prosecutors credited his stories for the arrest of a doctor who sold fake medicine to dying patients. And a frantic state legislator literally caught sleeping with lobbyists sprinted down state capital hallways to evade his questions in Sacramento. Moxley has won Journalist of the Year honors at the Los Angeles Press Club and been named Distinguished Journalist of the Year by the LA Society of Professional Journalists.
