Howie Klein writes Down With Tyranny.

Howie Klein from Down With Tyranny and the Blue America PAC is already looking for 2020 primary challenges to take down Blue Dog and New Dem congressmen who just got voted into office.

David:

Joining us is Howie Klein. He is the founder treasurer of the Blue America PAC which raises money for progressive, and socialist candidates, around America. He also writes Down with Tyranny, which I find quite amusing right now.

Howie:

Why? Why am I amusing?

 David:

Because the ink isn’t even dry on the midterms, they haven’t even brought in the new Congress, and already Howie Klein is looking for primary challenges for Democratic Congressman-elect Gil Cisneros.

Howie:

That’s right.

David:

We just saw this historic shift in Orange County. The birthplace of Reaganomics has turned blue. Yet Howie Klein can’t rejoice. He’s busy looking to find a primary challenge in 2020 for Gil Cisneros. Can’t the man even take the oath first?

Howie:

Hey I’m happy to talk about that. Gil Cisneros, who was just elected, lies to people and says he became a Democrat in 2008. He actually became a Democrat in 2011 or 2012. But in any case, he became a Democrat.

David:

That’s why you’re angry with him?

Howie:

The reason I’ve got all worked up over Cisneros today was because just when Congressman Seth Moulton’s coup attempt against Nancy Pelosi was dying, Gil Cisneros jumps in, having just won by the narrowest of margins, and in a very kind of peculiar way.

David:

Cisneros won in a peculiar way?

Howie: 

You mentioned Orange County. Well part of Cisneros’ district  is in LA. Part of his district is in San Bernardino County. But most of his district is Orange County. But he lost Orange County! Absolutely lost Orange County.

David:

Is he the Frito Lays taster?

Howie:

Yes.

David:

So, he’s already Orange from the Fritos.

Howie:

Enough shady ballots came in from LA at the last minute, so he won.

David:

Shady Ballots sounds like the nursing home Georgia’s Brian Kemp put his mother in.

Howie:

In other words, the Democratic Party machine knows how to manufacture votes.

David:

Wait, the Dems are manufacturing votes?

Howie:

Yeah. So, Cisneros lost this election in Orange County and San Bernardino but suddenly the L.A. Democratic machine shows up with a whole bunch of votes that they claim belong to him. He managed to win by a narrow margin, something like, I don’t know 1%.

David:

And his claim to fame is he’s a former potato chip taster who won the lottery?

Howie:

Exactly. A former potato chip taster for Frito-Lay. I might add by the way since you brought up the potato chip tasting is that he had been fired as a potato chip taster by Frito Lays presumably because he got into the potato chips and ate too many of them and was cutting into their profits and he had been warned not to do that and he kept doing it and they caught him a few times and they said if you do it again, you’re fired. He did it again he got fired.

David:

Is this true?

Howie: 

This is true! Then he  wins the two hundred and sixty-five million dollars Jackpot. And then he didn’t care about Frito Lays firing him. He could buy all the potato chips he wants to eat and he blew up like a balloon.

David:

So, this is the newly elected Democratic from California’s 39th congressional district.

Howie:

But he’s living in a different district. He lives in a gigantic mansion on the ocean. But that district wasn’t available to him so he ran in a much bluer district inland, that has no ocean view. I don’t know if he’s gonna move there. I assume not. He’s got a nice mansion on the beach in one of the poshest little tiny towns in the United States where every single person in the town is a multimillionaire.

David:

So, he isn’t supporting Pelosi for Speaker?

Howie:

No. Today he came out and said that he will join the Seth Moulton coup attempt against Nancy Pelosi.

David:

But Moulton dropped out.

Howie:

Gil Cisneros dropped in. Other people have decided to drop out of the coup. Congressman Brian Higgins from Buffalo, New York who says he’s not part of it anymore withdrew his name. Congressman Stephen Lynch from Boston another very conservative Democrat dropped out. So, the whole thing was falling apart this morning. Congressman Seth Moulton was begging Pelosi for some kind of face-saving gesture. The coup is over. Then all of a sudden in plops the potato chip taster and he signs on to the letter breathing new life into the whole effort to screw up the Democratic Party.

David:

So, Gil Cisneros hasn’t even been sworn in, and already you’re challenging him?

Howie:

Remember a primary challenge isn’t like I’m getting some Republican to run. The idea is to find a better Democrat, not an ex Republican who is really still a republican.

David:

Are there any good ex Republicans in the Democratic Party?

Howie:

Rarely does the conversion take. There are lots and lots of ex Republicans in Congress and they’re all bad. The exception to that rule is Senator Elizabeth Warren. She grew up a Republican, but once she started realizing what’s going on she changed to become a Democrat, and she’s a great Democrat.

David:

Howie Klein is also a great Democrat. He is the founder and treasurer of the Blue America PAC which raises money for progressive candidates, and socialist candidates, and you can read him over at Down with Tyranny.  Thank you, sir.

Howie:

Thank you.
