It's deja vu all over again. Within the last week, two Orange County Republican congressmen made Solomonic peace, and one of them, Robert Dornan (R-Garden Grove), agreed not to run against conservative soul mate Dana Rohrabacher (R-Long Beach) in the same newly drawn district. Then, veteran Ventura County Republican Robert J.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected a Republican National Committee bid to allow big-money contributions to political parties. The 6-3 summary ruling shows the high court is not prepared to throw out all the limits on money in politics. In January, the court struck down prohibitions on preelection broadcast ads that were paid for with corporate or union money. "This is an extremely important victory that stops the recent serious erosion by the Supreme Court [and] supports anti-corruption laws to protect the integrity of our elections and our government," said Fred Wertheimer, president of Democracy 21. In the 1990s, leaders of both the Democratic and Republican parties realized they could get around the federal limits on contributions to candidates by raising huge amounts of money through their parties.

Whether the subject matter is Elvis Presley or JFK, the black velvet confers a cheesy immortality. How appropriate, then, that Bill Robison has embraced the furry medium for O.J. Simpson, Jack Kevorkian, Monica Lewinsky and other standouts for his "American Tabloid Heroes Collection." "These people were dragged from whatever world they had and stuffed into the realm of American tabloid mythology," Robison, a former film student, says with melodramatic concern.

Hosting the Republican National Convention has been a dream of many local leaders since the GOP pulled out of a planned convention here in 1972. But things have changed a lot since the days when politicians' main fears were kids with long hair. Today, the spotlight is on the social conservatives, from abortion foes who have promised to disrupt local clinics to illegal-immigration opponents who might demonstrate at the international border.

In the beginning there was California's Best-Kept Secret. But that was blown to hell when Interstate 5 was built. Then came San Diego: City in Motion. People got dizzy off that one for a while. When the Republican Party jilted San Diego by dropping its plan for a national convention here, Pete Wilson decided civic pride had been sorely offended. He birthed America's Finest City. And now a new sobriquet has slouched our way. Welcome to San Diego: The Nation's Third Most Polite City.

As the Orange County Republican Party makes its first wholesale foray into local elections, the move is coming at a cost -- to officeholders. For the first time, the county's GOP is requiring incumbent candidates to join a special party association and pay a $200 membership fee if they want to receive the party's "early endorsement."

Samuel Hardage, founder of the Hardage Group of Cos. and president of the Republican Party in San Diego, travels a lot on business. He's had his own share of complaints about being on the road. But whereas most people might have complained to management about the establishments where they were staying, Hardage decided to build his own hotel chain instead. Today, Hardage directs Hardage Suite Hotels, a fast-growing group of all-suite hotels.

When California voters passed a ballot measure four years ago to restrict political donations, critics warned that it contained loopholes that would eventually make the limits meaningless. Now, critics say, the fall election campaign has confirmed just how easy it has become to skirt some of the law's intent. Under the campaign finance reform measure that voters passed in 2000, donors can give no more than $3,200 to an individual candidate. But they can give up to $26,600 to a county committee.

A countywide convention that some San Diego Republicans visualized as a means of strengthening the local party has divided GOP members here and generated threats of punitive action by state party officials upset over the prospect of pre-primary endorsements being made at the spring meeting.

As Senate candidate Carly Fiorina spoke to a standing-room-only meeting of local Republicans here, she hit familiar points -- her rise to become leader of Hewlett-Packard, her "common sense" approach to fixing the nation's economy and her pledge to give incumbent Barbara Boxer the fight of her life. Amid all the fiscal talk, Fiorina dropped in a line about her conservative social beliefs. "Barbara Boxer has never faced a candidate like me. . . . I will not permit her, for example, just to assume that all the women of California will vote for her," Fiorina told hundreds of people crowded in a hotel ballroom.
