Pombolooza: Rednecks for the Other Guy!



The Jerry McNerney campaign to dump Dick Pombo continues apace, but just in case Central Valley voters are a little queasy at the prospect of electing some Chez Panisse pansy, have the Dems got a TV spot for you! No hippies, no Pelosi talking points, just a shitkicker rancher squeezing a horse between his thighs and telling you his homespun truth. "Now I was raised to be a good neighbor, and to speak my piece," says the curmudgeonly cowpoke, who goes on to talk about, uh... watershed management and leveraged buyouts. Oh, well -- at least he doesn't mention McNerney by name.
