In yet another example of what a douche bag he is Ed Morrissey open’s his vapid progressive liberal piehole an spews forth utter garbage.
Chatizens of The Ed Morrissey Show know that Jim Croce is my favorite all-time recording artist, but fewer know that his widow Ingrid is one of my favorite restaurateurs on the West Coast. For more than 30 years, Croce’s has been an integral part of San Diego’s Gaslamp district, helping to transform the once-troubled downtown area into a successful and popular cultural center. On the too-rare occasions when I get to San Diego, one of the most pleasant of California’s cities, I always make time for a lunch or dinner at Croce’s. A few years ago, I even got to introduce my friend Elizabeth Crum to the Croce’s experience.
What a complete and utter load of crap. Ed, I actually live in San Diego, I have lived here for over 40 years. This is my home, not yours, and you don’t know your ass from a hole in the ground. Just because you have some serious wood for a bunch of elitist Marxist loving snobs doesn’t mean anyone else does. Croce’s didn’t play any damned significant role in the revitalization of the Gaslamp district. They like all pos progressive liberals took advantage of a city conceived and financed revitalization program.
Croce’s is well known in San Diego for being the hang out of choice in the Gaslamp for the most pretentious progressive liberal assholes in the entire county. That Ed associates with the Birkenstock wearing Berkley graduate patchouli wearing hippy wannabe crowd shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. That he would come screaming to the aide of a failing pathetic progressive liberals cries to crush their competition, well, that is exactly what Ed himself does.
Yea, that is all the Croce’s story really is. Croce’s had a near lock on their section of the Gaslamp, and then a new nightclub moved in, and suddenly the progressive liberals that in reality they are, they decided to wage lawfare to eliminate, to crush a rival. Yea, no surprise at all that Ed approves of this. In typical progressive liberal fashion, when Croce’s lost their legal challenges they attempted to wage a media propaganda assault on PCD’s, that also utterly flopped. So finally they oped to move. That’s right, Croce’s could take the heat of competition so they made the decision to move. And in typical progressive liberal fashion they are whining and sniveling like little girls.
Simply put, Ed Morrissey shut the hell up… You don’t know what the hell you are talking about.
EDIT: For those unaware, I am a retired Professional Musician from San Diego California and am intimately familiar with the San Diego Music industry. I played the San Diego club circuit between 1978 and 1996 as well as having played in a major label contracted band during the mid 80s. I am anything but a stranger to Croce’s or their clientele.
