Pepe Diaz Well Rehearsed? By Geniusofdespair

We all know that lobbyists supply talking points/speeches to County Commissioners. Hell, lobbyist are so blatant they even talk for politicians (I saw that done at a State Meeting when the legislation was too complicated to explain by the simpleton politician). No one can deny this goes on. We all can admit, Lobbyists are smart guys and gals, crafting quite effective arguments, well, effective enough so politicians look smart on TV. Well, smarter.

Anyway, it looks like Pepe Diaz tried to ad lib on the lines supplied to him yesterday with amusing results.

Diaz cracks me up with this stuff. Maybe we should just get him a lobbyist funded telepromter so he can remember what he's supposed to say to support their position while trying to seem sincere about the other side. If I had the skills I'd piece these snippets from him on youtube as what not to do to be so obvious!

I watched the hearing, didn't need the re run, but I hope others will watch your clip. And, these people want raises? Are you kidding?

"Carrot on a stick?" It's called mixing metaphors I believe. He's trying to say something about bait and switch but uses the carrot and stick metaphor.

In order to coerce, one can use a carrot or a stick Pepe. Look it up and you'll see what it means.
