Who Started This Food Fight?

This morning an innocuous post appeared on San Diego Politics (an excellent blog). The post announced that the candidates for Duke Cunningham's old seat in the CA-50 would be holding a debate under the auspices of California State University at San Marcos (CSUSM) in March. Just an informational post.

An hour after the initial post a lengthy comment was posted by someone claiming to represent the Concerned Republicans in the CA-50 District. You might suspect that the Concerned Republicans would be going after Democrat Francine Busby. You would be wrong. The Concerned Republicans posted went after Republican candidate Brain Bilbray. In Republican teams, it was ugly.

The post accused Bilbray of everything from supporting gun control to being in bed with Jack Abramoff. Bilbray is apparently pro-choice, too.

It almost went so far as to accuse Bilbray of being a liberal. Fightin' words in the CA-50.

The Republican fight in CA-50 is going to be ugly.
