I don't know how much attention everyone was paying to yesterday's primaries. But we had the potential for the greatest general-election campaign in the history of democracy.

Then Orly Taitz goes out and gets curb-stomped ( in the Secretary of State primary.

I mean, really, people. Someone's gotta be the laughingstock, and just think of the potential HILARITY for Taitz campaigning to the general public! Who'll she sue for no apparent reason? Will she accuse Meg Whitman of not being a Republican or American citizen? Everything was in play, but you had to go and vote for someone sane. Hmph.

You wanted the best, you got... the Out of Context Quote of the Week.

At least you can follow the South Carolina Senate race if you're looking for comic relief. Link:

Pending felony, lives with his parents, unemployed yet managed to come up with $10,400 (which may or may not have been paid by the Republican party); that should be a decent consolation prize.

Oh, but there's plenty of chance for laughingstock in California's future thanks to voters passing the Open Primaries proposition.

Since all state primaries are now eliminated, it means that EVERY state election could turn into the 2003 Recall election. I'm thrilled!

Or you know... the State of California setting up the property tax burden to sit disproportionally on recent homeowners, who then ended up underwater and defaulting on their loans...
