Here Is Double Talk That Only a Corporate Welfare-Loving Jock Worshipper Could Disregard
Get this: Mark Fabiani, lawyer/spokesman for the Chargers, is quoted saying the following on KFMB News today (Oct. 29): "We just can't do business with San Diego while Mike Aguirre is there. So we tell people that. We're not taking a position in the race; we don't endorse people or tell people to vote one way or another." Huh? The team says it can't do business with San Diego while Aguirre is there, but won't tell people how to vote in the city attorney race? There are two things people don't like about Fabiani: his face. To string two completely opposite thoughts together in one utterance will only register with rabid sports fans and lovers of political rhetoric. In the early 2000s, the Chargers came up with a cockamamie scheme to build condos in Mission Valley and get a subsidized stadium in the same deal. Fabiani claimed developers wouldn't enter the deal because of Aguirre. Such hogwash. Developers probably saw the San Diego condo collapse coming. Fabiani's double talk is also reminiscent of John Moores and Larry Lucchino trying to sell San Diegans on their subsidized ballpark. They both kept saying, "There is no Plan B." They might have well had a sign on their back: "We are incredibly stupid." No intelligent businessperson enters a deal without a Plan A, B, C, D, and E.
