Hateful Ralston pulls another boner

I have a confession to make…

I really do enjoy making the self-righteous Jon Ralston, Nevada’s #2 liberal blogger-without-a-TV-show, look like the liberal water-carrying fool he is.  And so…

On Monday, His Royal Haughtiness scribbled on his Ralston Flasher Report…

“I don’t usually do this, but because of the chatter generated by The Failure Caucus of Citizen Outhouse, Tony Dane and Michele Fiore, who basically talk a lot and accomplish little, their support for recalling people who have yet to cast one vote persuades me to pull my morning rant from behind the paywall.”

Ralston went on to declare that recalls “are nearly impossible, especially in modern urban Nevada.”

Ralston then linked to a document clearly prepared by someone else on his behalf that lists the history of recall attempts in Nevada over the last twenty years or so.  The vast majority of them weren’t serious efforts and, indeed, failed.  But that’s not the point.

The point is, Ralston criticized Tony Dane as being a member of what he calls the “Failure Caucus.”

Now get this.  Here’s one of the few successful recall attempts on Ralston’s list…

Las Vegas Councilwoman, Janet Moncrief
Notice of Intent filed September 2, 2004 (1st)
Petition submitted November 23, 2004
100% signatures
Election held January 25, 2005
Recall Successful

Now for the punchline…

Guess who led that successful recall effort in “modern urban Nevada”?

Yep…Tony Dane!

So in the long, long list of failed recall attempts, one of the only successful efforts was by the guy Ralston maintains is a serial failure.

Here, Jon, take this towel to clean that egg off your face.
