Taitz for Senate

According to The Atlantic Wire, Dr. Orly Taitz is seriously considering a run for the Senate from California, challenging incumbent Dianne Feinstein. Readers here will recall that Taitz was unsuccessful in a Republican primary run for California Secretary of State in 2010.

"I think I do have a chance specifically because I do speak Spanish and I speak Hebrew," Taitz told The Bee after attending a town hall-style event on Latino issues at the California Republican Party convention in Los Angeles.

Now if she could only talk sense. According to Street Hassle, neither Feinstein or Senator Barbara Boxer speak Spanish.

Other news coverage:

Taitz, in general, is not pleased with the coverage she’s received, stating:

Sacramento Bee and AP reporters show no journalistic integrity, refuse to even glance at the evidence and call ObamaFraudGate “a widely disproven theory”. Oh well, that’s what they called Watergate…

    Actually, muy locA. There arfe a lot of languages in which it makes a difference that Orly is a woman. As in Polish: “Ja nigdy nie będę mówił że Orly Taitz została usuniętA z palestry, chyba że w rzeczywistości Orly Taitz została usuniętA z palestry.” (as there are not many lfemale lawyers in Poland, Orly Taitz is the number one google on “usunięta z palestry”.)

    I always thought Orly’s claim of being able to speak Spanish is interesting. In the same interview she claimed to have learnt German from her grandparents. If, as I believe, these people were from Orgeev, I’d rather think Orly confused Yiddish and German. But since Moldavia was one of those places where Sephardim met Ashkenazi Jews in the 19th century (another place was Amsterdam), perhaps Orly also confuses Ladino with Spanish?

    Of course, it is far more probable that she learnt Spanish to get Hispanic clients for her dentistry practice. Judging by the quality of her English, however, I doubt that she really can speak good Spanish.

    Last December Taitz posted a “Candidate Intention Statement” that she had filled out and, I presume, filed.

    You can find her post here, usual malware warnings apply.

    I have to laugh.

    The only way Diane Feinstein doesn’t remain my senator is because she dies or decides not to run again. She is the solid moderate Democrat that there just is hardly any opposition to- except for the really radical left who claim that she is in the pocket of big business.

    Boxer- who has far less support- was still able to beat a big name, wealthy Republican candidate.

    But never let it be said that Orly Taitz lets reality dictate her course of action.

    Putting aside the fact that Orly Taitz is batshit insane and she couldn’t beat the weakest Senator in the country, aren’t the California Senate seats both Democratic strongholds? Seems to me that even a well financed, moderate Republican would have a pretty tough time getting elected to Senate up there.

    If a dominatrix ran against a Republican, the dom would win. Of course, the Republican would blame his loss on Twinkies.

    Orly confuses English with gibberish.

    Sfjeff: Oh come now. You don’t have to be Leon Trotsky to feel that a multi-multi-millionaire who was infamous for promoting real estate development above all else during her term as SF mayor, and whose single biggest campaign contributor is Pacific Gas & Electric, might be just a wee bit too cozy with big business.

    You’re probably right that she’s in the Senate permanently (though the polls haven’t been looking so good for her lately)– but I think you’ve missed some relevant news: http://articles.latimes.com/2011/sep/13/local/la-me-campaign-fraud-20110913 It would be tragically ironic if Orly Taitz’s (minuscule) political prospects were assisted by someone else’s fraud.

    Hey Orly: you’re in California, not New York. And you’re running for the US Senate, not mayor of Tel Aviv.

    You’ve heard of the Congressional Black Caucus. If Taitz managed to win, she and Cantor would form the Congressional Meshuggeneh Caucus.

    Toastpuppy- I lived here or close to here during most of her term as mayor. I am well aware of her record. I hadn’t read about the June Field poll, but that seems more a result of general antiincumbant sentiment that any serious opposition.

    Whether you approve of Feinstein or not, she is a middle of the road Democrat in Calfornia that can pick up Indendent voters, and moderate Republicans, besides most Democrats- so long as Republicans reliably nominate a very conservative candidate in opposition.

    Jeffy [sic], I’ve got no argument with that. I was just taking issue with your assertion that it’s only “the really radical left” who would call Feinstein a big-business politician. That’s not at all contradictory with her being middle-of-the-road; it’s the norm in California politics.

    Agreed.
