March 5th - A Triumph of Evil
Well, I don't have too much to say this morning.
I walked out of my polling place yesterday about as depressed as I have ever been in my life.
At least in 2008 and 2012, I thought there was a chance that John McCain or Mitt Romney could beat Obama.
Yesterday, I knew only evil would be triumphant.
If you check my previous blog post about this, you will see that I was nearly spot-on in my analysis.
Government workers vote to protect their loot. They always do.
They chose Eric and Wendy. Exactly like I said they would.
Kevin James and Jan Perry had no chance. None. Just like I said.
A few minor surprises. Dennis Zine is in trouble in the Controllers race. Ron Galperin finally has enough name recognition from previous political runs that he might be able to beat Zine in June. He has the money to try it.
"One Bill Gil" Cedillo is one of the big losers of the night, being forced into a runoff instead of winning outright like the vile "Two Job Bob" out in the Valley in District 3.
The Cat Whisperer? Yeah, yeah.... four more years.
Señor Fuentes? Viva Socialismo!
A minor surprise in CD 9 as the career bureaucrat Curren Price has been forced into a runoff against a popular Latina: City Hall staffer Ana Cubas.
At least the tax raise proposition lost.
But most other results were very sour for those who love freedom and Capitalism.
