BFF: Charlie Brown and Code Pink

Charlie Brown, State Sen. Tom McClintock’s opponent in California’s 4th District House race, showed up in uniform at an anti-war protest led by the radical Code Pink.  Today, Tom McClintock fires back:

In case you’re unfamiliar with Code Pink, they’re the group of “patriots” who show up at Walter Reed Medical Center to protest the war and ask our woundd veterans if it was worth losing an arm to support the War in Iraq.

Classy bunch, right?  And Charlie Brown is even classier for standing beside them.

What’s so scary about the cornerstone of democracy?

Big Labor’s top goal is passing legislation called “card check.”  This would take the right to a secret ballot away from workers as they vote on whether or not to unionize.  In the state of California, they are seeking to take this right away from farm workers.  Luckily, workers have people like Tom McClintock there to fight for them:

“What is it about the right of a secret ballot that bothers you?” Sen. Tom McClintock, R-Thousand Oaks, asked his Democratic colleagues during the debate. “An election in which someone is looking over your shoulder as you cast your vote is no election at all it’s a sham.”

While I was interning in DC, the organization I worked for pressed hard against this legislation in the House of Representatives, where it appeared under the Orwellian name of “The Employee Free Choice Act.”  It was stopped there, but in 2008 we elect new representatives and a new president.  Make no mistake, with a Democratic Congress and a President Obama, this legislation will pass.

Representatives like Tom McClintock will help serve as a firewall against draconian Big Labor legislation.  You can donate to Tom McClintock’s campaign here.

McClintock radio ads begin

The race for California’s 4th District is starting to heat up as State Sen. Tom McClintock rolls out his first radio ads.  Here is the text, in case you’re not in the area:

“Liberals like Nancy Pelosi and Charlie Brown want to continue supporting federal laws that prevents us from tapping America’s vast oil resources. That’s how we got into this mess —and why gasoline prices are now breaking our family budgets,” McClintock says at the beginning of the one-minute spot.

“America has nearly a trillion barrels of recoverable oil—more than three times that of Saudi Arabia—that Democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Charlie Brown won’t even let us touch. In fact, more than 94 percent of our territory remains off-limits because of this foolish prohibition. If we want to change this policy, we’ve got to change this Congress,” McClintock says.

It’s a good start in what is shaping up to be a rough year for Congressional Republicans, even in a district that went 61% for President Bush in the 2004 presidential election.

Human Events on Tom McClintock

Leading conservative magazine Human Events commented on the state of the House race in California’s 22nd District and finds State Sen. Tom McClintock in a good position to win in November:

The district is very Republican, giving Bush about 60% in both elections. Brown started the third quarter with a cash advantage, because McClintock had spent nearly all his $1.4 million to win the GOP primary. Ose endorsed McClintock afterwards, however, and the GOP vote is likely to unify behind their nominee to save this seat. McClintock is capable of making enemies, and that’s Brown’s best hope.

As the excerpt notes, Tom McClintock needs your help reclaiming the cash advantage over his Democratic opponent.  Please donate to Tom McClintock here.
