carly, meg, sharron & prop 14

California Republicans nominated two smart, capable women yesterday:  Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina.  Now Whitman will challenge Jerry "Moonbeam" Brown for Governor and Fiorina will take on the brain dead idiot Liberal Senator Barbara Boxer.

Voters here in California also did something really stupid yesterday. Prop 14 creates open primaries and elevates the top two vote winners to a general election run-off, regardless of party.  So, two Republicans, or more likely, two Democrats will now face each other.  Changing the way candidates are nominated in a deep blue Liberal state like California? Bad idea for democracy. Prop 14 also effectively kills third party candidates, because Greens or Libertarians don't garner big vote shares.

To Nevada. Sharron Angle wouldn't have been my first choice to challenge brain dead idiot Liberal Harry Reid, but her spunkiness is infective. If she gets a good organization up and running, I like her chances against the wildly unpopular Reid.

Of course, asshole Harry has a ton of cash and the sycophantic media (like the always objective Margaret Carlson) on his side who will continue to write ridiculous crap like "Harry Reid Glad to Face GOP Extremist."

Washington State has the top two system also. One of the most unfair systems skewed to benefit the liberals. Historically the West side of Washington State votes Liberal and the East side Conservative.(As determined by the Cascade Mountain range.) Because the majority of the population is on the West side,they generally manage to win the elections. By implementing the top two system, the machine has managed to almost guarantee a win in all future elections. I am hoping that in this election cycle, enough Conservatives on the West side have awaken to what is happening to our country and our state.
Harry Reid??? I still do not understand how he continues to win, except that his constituents are brain dead also.

It's going to be a disaster. California is Liberal in San Francisco, Los Angeles and along the coastline, but very Conservative inland and in the agricultural areas. It really is a tale of two states.

It's not hard to imagine the top two vote getters being Democrats.

Maybe I'm just an eternal optimist, but after hearing Sharron Angle and seeing her early poll numbers immediately after the primary, I'm feeling good.

Of course, Reid is going to slime her but I think he's unpopular enough that people will see through the mudslinging.

I'm focused on Carly Fiorina beating Barbara Boxer. Boxer is a cancer that needs to be cut out of our state.
