Nunes attacks The Fresno Bee. The Fresno Bee responds.

What have we done to trigger Nunes into chipping off at least $30,000 from his $7 million war chest in an absurd, desperate attempt to discredit Central Californiaís leading news organization? Letís sum up:

● We had the temerity to ask Nunes why he doesnít hold town halls or do meet-and-greets with anyone except wealthy donors. (For this, he went on a petulant rant.)

● We reported Nunes is an investor in a Napa Valley winery, owned by a friend, that was sued by an employee for civil rights violations, intentional infliction of emotional distress and sexual harassment following a fundraiser held on a yacht.

Never did the story imply that Nunes was present or had knowledge of the events. It simply reported on the lawsuit, and Nunes was given the chance to respond. Heís a part-owner of the winery and our Congressman. That makes it newsworthy.

44. No republican I've met can seem to comprehend....

anyone on planet Earth breaking St. Ronnie's 11th commandment: "Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican."

They take it one step further now and just say "Thou shalt not speak ill of any Republican."

Every single one I've ever met is totally allergic to any criticism of their political beliefs. It truly represents a form of mental illness and is our most corrosive form of American bigotry.

5. I used to live about 40 miles north of Fresno, up in the Sierras.

The Fresno Bee was 'the' newspaper in the whole area. Fresno is to far north of LA to really care, to far south of SF/SJ to really care, and there is nowhere else close. As the famous quote normally attributed to Mark Twain goes, "Never pick a fight with someone who buys their ink by the barrel and their paper by the ton".

That editorial is gonna leave a mark.

26. I would not want to live in Fresno.

We actually lived about 40 mi North, close to Bass Lake, in a tiny town called North Fork. For those not familiar with the area around Yosemite, Bass Lake featured prominently in Hunter S. Thompson's book "Hells Angels".

The only time we actually went to Fresno was if we had to do some major shopping (the closest mall was in Fresno) of I had to fly off to somewhere.

25. someone needs to tell the bee and the dem that his .gov website has about 50 podcasts

of interviews of nunez, a lot of them on talk radio stations where he'd be treated like royalty and probably feels comfortable saying all sorts of shit that can be useful.

those can be transcribed for $5/hr at sonix.ai

Down the road from Kings Canyon/Sequoia National Parks. Yes, had to go to Clovis or Visalia to shop.

This would have been unheard of a few years ago:

If he gets re-elected, I hope the Dems drag him before the ethics committee. There is a process in the House, whereby a member can be kicked out for cause.

The sooner we are done with the little traitor pr&ck, the better, IMHO! Then they can drag him in front of the Committee to ask him what his little escapades were about--why he visited the White House that night in such a secret rush, why he wants to know all the DOJ/Mueller probe "secrets" (it ain't about oversight, I can tell ya), etc. Then we can just hang him, bury him in a radioactive-waste dump, and be done with him.

...Janz is gaining. He was down by about 10 points in June. That Janz has a chance is pretty amazing and speaks to how favorable of a year this is for Democrats.

So, suffice to say, I'll be following other districts much more closely on election night. I almost wish I lived in a battleground district. Almost.
