Maldonado On The Colbert Show

Abel Maldonado (or as John Seiler calls him, "Unable Abel") made his first appearance television appearance as California’s appointed Lt. Governor last night on the Steve Colbert show.  It’s worth watching as Colbert basically mocked Maldo and his "open primary" ballot measure — going as far as to give it a tongue-in-cheek endorsement after confirming that nothing in it keeps candidates from spending however much they want on television advertising…   It is extremely disappointing to me that while it is clear as day that our problems in Sacramento are that the Democrats are in charge, Maldonado sees the problem as being that HE is not in charge..

Without going on further, here you have it…
