Up here is Northern California we had gotten used to the political gab fest that was the Will and Willie show, with Dust and Willie Brown. Some even got to thinking that Durst was a progressive.
However, he has now shown himself for what he is, a read the line for a fee advertising hack. Listen (mp3) to this commercial that he did for the California Alliance for Jobs. Durst show absolutely no understanding of what the real issues are behind the water problems that we have in California now and only offers the standard formulaic comments about building a lot of new things with a lot of union labor. This time, the Republicans will be applauding.
I sent him an email that told him to talk to Restore the Delta and learn the truth before he does another commercial. I would encourage the rest of you to do the same.
Sometimes, the unions do the right thing. Other times, they take stupid positions just to gain the power from more union jobs. This is one of the latter.
