( Picture from a different event but it seemed fitting)
Ventura County Star Reporter Timm Herdt posted a blog entry on a recent roast of State Assembly Speaker John Perez that Former State Assembly Member Audra Strickland participated in.
Here was a few lines from her routine worth sharing:
"Did you know that John Pérez actually tried out for The Biggest Loser TV show? Not surprisingly it didn't go well. He kept letting the team with the purple shirts win," Strickland on Pérez, referring to the purple-shirted SEIU protestors who frequent the Capitol.
"Seriously John, if you vote for that tax on sugary goods, it would be just like Charlie Sheen voting on a tax on porn and meth," Strickland on Pérez.
"I was going through the Capitol this morning and chatting with a visitor and he said, 'You know, I always feel like we're getting screwed by legislators who don't know what they're doing.' And I was like, 'Tell me about it, it happens to me every night,'" Strickland, who is married to GOP Sen. Tony Strickland.
I like when politicians can laugh at themselves. Audra Strickland earned some respect from me for participating in this event. Now go and pass a budget!
