Happy Evil Pug Tuesday, Wheelizens! (You can tell it’s evil because it’s in teh “murder position”.)

When I was in elementary school, we used to get out an hour early on Tuesdays due to a weekly staff meeting; that was nice.

So, some sportsball guys aren’t gonna go to the White House? Pfffft! Not being a sports fan, I don’t understand why it’s newsworthy that grown men who get paid a lot of money for playing a game are being petulant jerks…and that somehow constitutes making a “statement”.

Bah!

BBL.

Happy Tuesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa!

Had some trouble launching Teh Wheel this morning -- server not found error, the same with AoSHQ. I assume it was some DNS problem as I can get into both, now.

It’s primary day here in the People’s Republik of Jerry Brown. The feckless state GOP had no endorsements for any of the statewide races, nor most of the congressional ones. With our top two primary system, I’m afraid we’ll end up with nothing but Dems on the ballot in November.

With the greater Democrat registration numbers, if both parties split their votes among two candidates, the Dems will be the top two vote getters and advance to the general election. If the state GOP could have united behind one candidate, with multiple Dems running for each office, R’s would at least stand a chance of making it past the primary.

The top-two primary initiative was sold as a way to insure more moderates had a chance at winning, but has only resulted in more (and more extreme) Democrats.

Hai, Paddy and Mac!

Jim teh Roofer’s not bothering to vote today; said he doesn’t see any point to standing in line for no potential return on the effort. (Hell…I mostly feel that way about voting ’round here, too. Although I’m happy that my least favorite gubernatorial candidate lost in the primaries…)

Well, I voted. For what it’s worth.

Expect a knock on the door, sometime later tonight, unless you voted the “correct” way.

or

Leading Democrats won their respective races with 110% of the vote.

Time to load the guns -- it’s almost dark. Sheesh: California.

There seems to be some interesting results coming in.
