She is a Tea Bagger, not a Republican. There is a big difference.

Please, elaborate and explain those differences for me.

It is well known that Republicans have higher IQ than a Tea Bagger.

A majority vote was not reached for 1st Dist. Supervisor, what? I thought CRA was supposed to be common sense conservatives. Let's see, we have Buster, a 20 year incumbent supporting Jerry Brown's budget, and has carved out a lavish six figure for life pension. Then we have Mike "Double Dip" Soubirous, a retired CHP, with a pension, supported by unions and looking for another taxpayer funded pension. The obvious common sense conservative choice is Kevin Jeffries. What were they thinking?
