A law firm with ties to the California GOP is deeply bothered to see Mexican-American Jose Hernandez's name on the ballot for U.S. Congress (that is not the joke yet, but we could probably just stop there, ha ha) because he has listed himself as "astronaut" on the line for his occupation. Hernandez, the son of migrant Mexican laborers, is a recently
I know, I&#039;m a silly liberal.
He declared his candidacy with the FEC in September, but it looks like the filing date that counts must have been no earlier than February, and therefore after 12 months had elapsed from his leaving NASA. Boo!
So I guess the question is how do you interpret the phrase from the CA code, &quot;during the calendar year immediately preceding the filing&quot;. The CA code defines &quot;year&quot; as 365 days (to highlight the bizarre way lawmakers think, to deal with leap years, the 28th and 29th of February taken together are defined as <em>one</em> day) but it doesn&#039;t define &quot;calendar year&quot;. To me, the preceding calendar year wouldn&#039;t be the 365 days immediately before the filing, but the 365 days of 2011; if that&#039;s how the court sees it, it&#039;s an easy win for Hernandez.
This is not good news for &quot;Joe,&quot; &quot;the Plumber.&quot;
Where&#039;s the rest of the name?
Fresno Bee what?
Bingo! You win a copy of Black&#039;s Law Dictionary.
A decent lawyer should be able to get this bullshit suit tossed with two hours&#039; work, tops. But the publicity is priceless, so why rush?
Golf clap, but yeah.

It would be racist to mention the fact.
Denham may get to wear an orange jumpsuit someday, so you should always double-check before voting.
It&#039;s all affirmative action, of course...

Good times...great times!
Hernandez announced his run in October. If that&#039;s also when he filed, this case will also publicize that Hernandez didn&#039;t just work for NASA, he did so recently enough for the case to be dismissed, because his filing would have been made within a year of him jumping to the private sector.
She <u>is</u> a governor: The more the country threatens to make progress, she more she spins and the more she generates output that throttles the process.
But what&#039;s with the orange suit? Was he on a work-release program?
I would like to see what professions are shown for some Republicans. Romney, Santorum or Gingrich could not honestly claim to have been other than professional candidates over the last year.
Yes, Republitards, this is exactly the way to make sure nobody knows the guy&#039;s an astronaut: by making a stink about it and getting it publicized and talked about in the media.
This is what happens when you&#039;re out behind the shed, jerking off, when the brains are being handed out.
He intends to keep them from landing. It&#039;s gonna be one hell of a fence.
