Taking letter writer's memory to task

Regarding Francis Adams' recent letter ("Glendalian is not in Kansas anymore," Nov. 11), first of all, us "no-brain Californians" actually fought off a Republican from buying the governorship for roughly $141 million of her own money. If you can remember two weeks ago, the mud-slinging went both ways, but our governor-elect actually voted for the last 28 years.

The bright spot for us will be that someone will actually be looking out for the middle class again.

Adams' memory seems to evade logic since it was the Republicans that put this country in the financial mess that it finds itself, with the Bush administration policies of the last eight years. It took President Bush eight years to screw it up, and you expected Obama to clean it all up in two years. Really?

Maybe if you close your eyes and click your heels three times, you can be back in Kansas where you belong.

A case of the pot calling the kettle black

As a native Californian and Democrat, I was quite amused by Francis Adams' Nov. 11 letter, "Glendalian is not in Kansas anymore."

We Californians were portrayed as having no brains because we are out of step with the rest of the nation. I guess someone needs to point out that while the GOP won in great numbers, they didn't get all the numbers, and the mud-slinging was in fair abundance from both sides of the aisle.

Mud-slinging, at its core, is the practice of making unscrupulous, malicious attacks against an opponent.

Francis, does the pot calling the kettle black mean anything to you?
