6. I wonder if they modeled Kyle McLachlan's mayor character in Portlandia after Sam?

Don't really know Sam that much, but McLachlan's mayor is a load of a character that loves to be diverted to other meaningless things.

Also don't know if we want that kind of person in congress though... Certainly David Wu will set the tone of the race not to accept anyone with any questionable personal relationship background, which I believe that Sam has had at least questions about in the past too. Personally I don't want the right wing hit squads just to focus on that with Sam, and negate anything constructive he might try to do.

As someone who had to survive after a heavy effort to keep Republican Brian Bilbray from winning a special election to replace Duke Cunningham, I'd really like to at least keep a Democrat in this seat. And from the stories I heard about Bilbray about his times serving as a life guard in San Diego that are hard to substantiate, he's probably had a lot more "baggage" than just about any of the Democrats that got in trouble that got them out of office. But of course the right wing hacks don't want to have anything to do with outing Rethugs like him.

We need to really get someone lined up.

Wouldn't you know that I just lost my phone service (along with internet service) today and tomorrow (when I was supposed to have a phone interview). I'm writing this note in now at Starbucks before they kick us out shortly.
