Where is Rose?

Is she outside waving the white flag?

There is nothing to prevent Johanna from doing a write-in campaign except the fact that only the top 2 candidates in the election can run in the run-off and that doesn't include her since she didn't run. The Secretary of State needs a new spokesperson.

The law could spell it out a little more clearly, but I'm pretty certain that a review of the legislative history will find that the nonpartisan primaries were intended to result in a majority win rather than a plurality. And if that's not the goal, then why waste our time with the first round election at all?

Eric V. Kirk said...

It's odd that the TS article neglects any mention of the statute itself.

Rose is too upset to blog today, you will have to excuse her.

theo therme said...

i think that the label on this thread that reads "ken miller's quest for power" says it all.

is it paranoia or denial or jealousy? i cant tell, but either way, its not healthy....ken miller was not up for election.

But his buttboy was. And won.

It's insanity.

theo therme said...

5:29,
his buttboy? do you realize how much your comments say about YOURSELF?

you make moderates like me want to vote for anyone that people like you support.

Anonymous said...

theo

you consider yourself a "moderate"?

Who are you trying to fool/impress?

There was no mention of who I SUPPORT! So who are you going to vote for?

theo therme said...

7,05,
im a registered republican, although no republicans will get my vote in 2008...im actually thinking of voting democrat for the 1st time in my life.

and yes, you did mention who you support. by calling a candidate a "buttboy", you clearly made a choice. its either that or you are a participant in butt games with these guys and you know for a FACT that he's a buttboy. if you are his other buttboy, then ill accept that you havent expressed support for anyone, and have instead stated a fact.

so are you his buttboy or did you support vevoda?

theo therme said...

that last post should have read: did you support plumley? not vevoda

Anonymous said...

Each Board of Sups candidate that Rose supported lost

ouch

Rose supported Johanna Rodoni and Johanna Rodoni won. She won the most votes.

Eric, the most ardent anti-democracy activist in Humboldt County, is quite willing to scotch democracy for the majority voters in the 2nd District if it helps the Prog Machine seize political control.

theo therme said...

if we want to be technical, ROGER rodoni won the most votes, not johanna.

sour grapes stink...

mresquan said...

Theo,let Steven be,he's clearly confused about that.It's all over the blogs.

Anonymous said...

theo I don't think you're on track. again.

so you work with a bunch of drunken sailors? that explains alot.

Yawn......what facts have i misused?

theo therme said...

if you cant make a logical argument, dont bother to post. simply calling names make you look worse than the person you are trying to dehumanize.

when i see a post that attacks a person without giving ANY debate on the issue, i know ive struck a chord.

i didnt support anyone in the 2nd.....get a clue and stop with the sour grape routine....

Its sour grape poisoning, Theo. There is no antidote.

Rose said...

Let's aim for a higher level of discourse. There are serious issues to be discussed. For the sake of other readers... you guys are better than this.

Anonymous said...

Good point Rose, but it's hard to elevate the conversation with floaters like theo and the lovelace clones. Perhaps we should just ignore posts from such fools.Of course it's these fools that turn our lovely play ground into a smelly septic tank.

theo therme said...

yeah, im a lovelace clone...there ya go....name calling makes you feel good because YOU CANT AGRUE ISSUES!!!

im more fiscally conservative than most of rose's readers. get a clue..
