GOP CONVENTION: Patrick Little, the neo-nazi Republican candidate for U.S. Senate that was found in second in a recent poll was kicked out of the party convention yesterday, reports Joe Garafoli in the Chron.
As Little was led from the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina, he was “kicking and dragging an Israeli flag on the ground,” said GOP consultant Luis Alvarado, who witnessed Little’s removal. “That doesn’t represent our values.”
“There is no room for that kind of speech here,” said Cynthia Bryant, executive director of the state party.
When Little tried to register for the convention Saturday, Bryant said, Little said he was a Republican. She said she replied, “But you’re not welcome here.” Bryant said political parties are private organizations and can exclude any person they choose.

Residents and tourists are horrified by homeless tent camps and human waste on the streets, even as the median home price hit $1.3 million in March. People are cranky over congested streets and vehicle break-ins.

Twin Election Strategies: As Trump Rails About Immigration, His Supporters Offer A Rosy View Of Tax Cuts
Cathleen Decker @ latimes.com
The event was wholly political, however, and it served to illustrate the competing sallies for Republicans this election year: one seeking to attract a broad swath of voters by touting the administration's effect on Americans' lives, the other driven by the president's desire to exaggerate and argue about grievances dating back to his election campaign.
