When Irvine state assemblyman Chuck DeVore
started running for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate more than a year ago, our first impression was that he was an affable nerd running something of a joke campaign built on Twitter quips and YouTube groaners
By the end, though, he had styled himself as the booming-voiced Constitutional scholar that could rally all those aged jocks at the tea parties.
But in his post-candidate life, DeVore has returned to full-geek.
On Sunday, he'll host
a three-hour show on KFI AM 640. The theme? San Diego's Comic-Con
International. Yes, he'll be talking about the expo featuring all the people dressing up as anime characters and wookies.
Of course, there'll be a political bent. One of his guests will be Adam Baldwin, who plays an NSA agent on NBC's geektacular Chuck, is not a Baldwin brother, and who writes aggrieved conservative-persecuted-by-Hollywood columns for Big Hollywood.
DeVore hasn't announced the others who will be joining him during his Comic-Con three hour special. But since he's made clear that he won't be running for mayor of Irvine
, forgive us for hoping that this show is the launch platform for DeVore's new career as comic book convention panelist. Why isn't China Attacks
a graphic novel yet, anyways?
