from "Hannity & Colmes," ...
SEAN HANNITY...from San Francisco tonight, the board of supervisors here overwhelmingly voted to reject a plan last year that would bring the historic World War II Iowa battleship right here to San Francisco harbor, as a museum and tourist center.
We're now joined by one of the supervisors that voted against that plan, Gerardo Sandoval is with us.
You don't want a symbol of war in the harbor. Is what you said to me.
GERARDO SANDOVAL: That's right...
it's a warship and it's got guns on it. It fires things. You know, you can't deny what it is.
SANDOVAL: I don't think we should have a military. Absolutely.
SANDOVAL: The United States should not have a military. All in all, we would be in much, much, much better shape.
...what do you want to defend ourselves with?
SANDOVAL: Well, you got cops. It's called the Coast Guard.
HANNITY: I've got to tell you, this is a first. You made look Alan look like a hawk.
I'm going to tell you something. If America is attacked, you have no defenses.
You have no liberty.
You have no freedom.
You can't think in such a shallow way.
You've got to tell me that this is a joke.
HANNITY: Or when al Qaeda attacks you, what are you going to do?

To which Sandoval arrogantly quipped: Welcome to San Francisco.
Not to disparage our men in blue and our firemen, but they are largely responders...after an attack. (And thank goodness they are willing to do that!)
I've never left anything there that I want to go back for.
This guy can only be described with the word "clueless".
Hope you're happy with your representation, San Franciscans.
Even Colmes thought this guy was an idiot.
We need cops and firemen.
We also need a Navy, an Army, an Air Force...
I would think that most San Franciscan's would find the idea of anybody bringing a set of 16 inchers to town, rather exciting.
What are the SFPD going to respond with? The City Council wants to take away their firearms.
And had Sandoval asked any cops or firefighters if they'd be ok with that? My guess is, uh, No!
This guy is an idiot.
This guy getting elected also says that the voters in SF are even bigger idiots.
Hell, maybe San Francisco doesn't "need" judges eithers! Maybe have just a bunch of Guessers, huh Gerry?
But without useless POSs like Sand Oval, the rest of us would not believe just how screwed up that town is.
Like the expression goes, nobody's completely useless:
you can always be a bad example!
The Third Worlder merely adding his two cents towards sapping the Americans will to resist.
Here is the video...
"Sean was interviewing ultra-lib San Francisco Supervisor Gerardo Sandoval and was doing a fairly good job of exposing him for the anti-military leftist that he is, but it didnt get really good until Alan jumped in.
In his typical style, he attempted to make Sandoval sound a little less looney by asking him a leading question to the effect of Do you think the United States ought to have a military?, fully expecting him to respond with something like Well, of course. Instead, the guy said No.
That left Colmes sputtering and try as he might, he couldnt rehabilitate the interview. This guy, an elected San Francisco official, is a complete whacko and Colmes proved it.
It was priceless."
I think this is called "chasing the tail while running in one's own stools."
