Sandra Fluke Considers A Run For Henry Waxman’s House Seat
http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/ ^ | 01/30/2014 | n/a

Posted on 01/30/2014 6:17:10 PM PST by massmike

Sandra Fluke, the women’s rights activist who became a lightning rod in a national discussion about contraception, said she is “strongly considering” a run for Henry Waxman’s soon-to-be vacant House seat.

Waxman, 74, a longtime liberal California Democrat, described by friends and foes alike as one of the most prolific congresspersons of modern times, announced Thursday that he would retire at the end of the legislative session.

In a statement released after Waxman’s announcement, the 32-year-old Fluke said, “I’m flattered that I’m being discussed as a potential candidate, especially for Rep. Waxman’s seat, considering his incredible legacy. A number of folks I respect very deeply have reached out today and encouraged me to run. I am strongly considering running. I’ll be making my decision soon.”

Well at least she’s one politician who will have plenty of condoms when she starts screwing us. All things considered , that will be an improvement over what we’re getting now.

Clearly she has found the right Party in which to pursue her highest aspirations.

They will certainly vote for a Dem (no Republican even ran in 2012).
But I’d guess she isn’t a lock for the D primary.

It ain’t gonna happen. Here’s why:

She was born in Pennsylvania, went to school in upstate, NY and Washington DC. California ain’t her home in any way, shape or form. She decided to take the Bar exam in California AFTER all of her publicity.

Assuming Waxman’s district is safely Dem., does anyone here doubt that there are one or more true locals who have been patiently waiting his turn? I think I know what Fluke wants. She wants to be Babs Boxer’s successor in the Senate and be a Senator for 40 years.

It ain’t gonna play out that way. If she wants the nomination, she’ll have to pick a competitive district.

Waxman’s district is so D there wasn’t even a R candidate in 2012.

In 2010 the year of the Republican wave/ Obamacare backlash the R candidate got 32%

Fluke suffers from Competency Transfer Dysfunction. She has shown that she is able to talk about contraception, but all that proves is that she knows how to talk about contraception. What experience and training does she have that proves she would make a competent US Representative? Or is this just another Democrat Fairy Tale candidate?

My theory is they do so because more people pay attention when they can point and laugh at fools. The trick is to completely ignore it, but most people don’t.

Caliph Baraq had the “dream team” of Axlegrease, Gibbs, and Plouffy.

I suspect there are a lot of California Dems ready to stomp on Flukey before she even gets her petitions printed.

I almost fell off my seat when I heard her last name was pronounced like the F curse word. "It's not 'flook' it's 'fluk'…" Like something out of Austin Powers..
