Political Human Sacrifice, the summer reality series
September 8, 2004 8:53 PM   Subscribe

Reality shows meet real politics as radio talk show hosts John and Ken have chosen Republican David Dreier and Democrat Joe Baca as their Political Human Sacrifices of 2004. Dreier is the chairman of the House Rules Committee who wields tremendous power. But here in Southern California, Dreier is under fire for his pro-outsourcing and pro-illegal immigration stands.

With Dreier's winning vote margin being 45,000, can one radio talk show beat the pundits and upset an entrenched incumbent? The pair will be campaigning against Dreier and Baca every day until the general election. The talk hosts might be getting a little help from, of all people, Larry Flynt's Hustler Magazine, who is in the process of working on a story that will "out" Congressman Dreier (as first reported by the blog which was previously discussed here). Dreier's challenger must be overjoyed.

they chose them because a group for "immigration reduction" gave them an F?

Well, and he refused to be berated live on the radio like the other four contestants. And he did nothing when illegal immigration sweeps were halted.

Man, I'm a democrat, and I want Dreier to win. Why? Because the concept of the Republicans purging all their moderates is actually pretty scary.
