Zoe Lofgren seems to have lost all self-respect or respect for her office by being in office for way too long. This was evidenced by her refusing to listen to reason in inviting Steven Colbert to make a mockery of a Congressional hearing on Friday. I mean, really? It's somewhat akin to inviting Roseann Barr to sing the National Anthem and then being surprised it went badly.
Well, there is hope for that district, in what will hopefully be a successful campaign by Dan Sahagun to take that seat from Lofgren.
