5. Nice try from the boiler room
Bustamante is listed as a "co-author," along with 41 other assembly members and 22 senators. He wasn't one of the three assembly members or three senators listed as "principal co-authors." He didn't introduce the bill (Republican Jim Brulte did).

Nice try. No Macanudo for you to share with your boss, Arnie.

4. "with the assurance of a con man who knows his rubes"
What a great line. I think Joe hit the nail right on the head.

6. Joe smokes they ass again. He shames 99% of the press.
"If the citizen were of a certain age, he or she might dimly remember how the nations economy grew for decades with regulated utilities (and some that were even owned by the publiclike the Los Angeles power plants that continued to supply electricity even during the blackouts)."

He should sell clues to the rest of the pathetic press. At deregulated prices, of course.
