People I don’t want to hear from in 2013

Jan. 1, 2012

By Katy Grimes


As I was reflecting back on 2012 last evening right before midnight, I realized that the events of the year were made to happen by people – we cannot think about the good and bad events without acknowledging the people behind them.

The list of people I never want to hear from again is long:

Sandra Fluke – 30-year old Georgetown law student, feminist activist, obsessed with free contraception

Jesse Jackson – race-baiting shakedown artist

Mary Nichols – arrogant, unaccountable bureaucrat who heads up the California Air Resources Board… calling her ‘unaccountable’ is kind.

Anyone on unemployment for 99 weeks

The Sacramento Bee Editorial Board – always wrong, always out of step, always liberal

Michael Moore – wealthy documentary movie maker, conservative hater, pontificator-in-chief

Independent voters – desperate for media attention

Harry Reid – one of the nastiest politicians in American history

Nancy Pelosi – House Minority Leader, who led her party to become a minority

Labor unions

Low information voters – morons with voting rights

President Barack Obama – campaigning since 2004

Republican Strategists – the smart guys who lost another national election and got paid millions for losing

Leslie Marshall – radio talk show host, big mouth, husband is a doctor

Iowa caucus

Eva Longoria – Hollywood actress, should forgo political endorsements in the future… and speaking roles

anything Kardashian

local television news – is no longer news or reporting. Talking in soundbites is not news, nor is chasing down crime victims and sticking cameras and microphones in their faces.

And a few California politicians who have a special place in my heart, who we will be hearing plenty from in 2013 – particularly with a Democratic supermajority in the Legislature:

Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, D-Sacramento – wolf in sheep’s clothing

Sen. Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles – “How do I love me? Let me count the ways.”

Sen. Mark Leno, D-San Francisco – represents San Francisco

Gov. Jerry Brown – Governor Moonbeam, fading to a crescent moon?

California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom – wants desperately to be governor… or somebody famous

Assembly Speaker John Perez – the intimidator

The people on this list have one thing in common; they believe that citizens exist for the government. Is this really who we want representing us?

Who do you want to add to this list?

Happy 2013.
