Cooper enjoys Fabian's worst day in politics

Marc Cooper sinks the hooks on Speaker Fabian Núñez at the LA Weekly website:

With great pride, I accepted the honor a few months back of being labeled 'the state's worst political journalist' by one of the party flacks who works for the soon-to-be ex-speaker of the Assembly, Fabian Núñez. In this business, it's all about collecting the right enemies. And now I'm just as flattered to have been among the first to have correctly predicted —way back in the summer — that Núñez's political career would come to a humiliating end, as it precisely did, in last week's election.

He holds off bringing up French wine and sprees at Louis Vuitton until, oh, the second paragraph. Link
