Breaking....John & Ken Are Really Pissed Off At John Campbell

I don't know if I've ever heard John Kobylt as mad as just heard him. Apparently John Campbell's people(Dave Gilliard & Jim Terry) have made the decision to boycott/not show up to the Ayres Hotel Monday in Laguna Woods for a discussion/debate with Jim Gilchrist a day before the election. Kobylt even went so far as to say that Campbell might be their next victim for political human sacrifice and they are going to make his next year in Congress "a living hell". Instead John Campbell has decided to show up at Mr Republican kool-aid himself's show, Hugh Hewitt. I like Hugh's show, but he doesn't have a tenth of the audience that John & Ken have. I guess Campbell thinks that the race is in the bag. He could be right, but it doesn't make sense to piss off John & Ken after all the airtime that they have given Campbell over the years. They just called him an "open border David Dreier like kiss ass", heh heh. That was a good one.

****************Evening Update***************************

John Campbell was just on John Zieglar's show and was asked if he had David Dreier's endorsement. He hemmed and hawed and basically said that he doesn't want an endorsement from David Dreier. That's funny. You know it's bad for Dreier when a guy like John Campbell views you as political kryptonite. Zieglar also asked him about the Jim Gilchrist radio ad running on KFI. Obviously he thought it was all lies, but he just doesn't sound comfortable when he is being asked tough questions. I guess it's to be expected. Zieglar asked some good questions.

    That's not exactly news, though. It's Politics 101 that you NEVER debate an opponent when you are more than a few points above the other person. You only give the other person exposure and allow yourself to possibly put your foot in your mouth. Considering that Campbell's absentee operation has essentially got the election in the bank, Campbell decided he doesn't need the stress and would rather plan for his victory party the next day.

    I realize that, but Campbell just denied that Gilliard advised him not to go to the John & Ken's show Monday on John Zieglar's show tonight. He sounded weasely again. This race is rewriting some of those old political rules. If John & Ken make Campbell their next David Dreier, it is going to one long year in Congress for John. Why not just go on the show. Besides Hugh Hewitt doesn't have any ratings like J&K do. They have given huge airtime over the past few years to John to plug his ideas while he was in Sacramento. It seems fair that he would return the favor to them, not to mention that it would make for great radio with another knock down drag em debate on illegal immigration.
