Nazi cunt Scary Lake cuddles with Papa Fascist Pussygrabber in Arizona in July. It’s looking like Scary is going to lose her bid for dictator — er, governor — of Arizona. She’ll cry “fraud” — of course — but she will be out of power, and that’s what matters the most.
Repugnican-fascist candidate for Arizona governor Kari Lake proclaimed to a reporter on Election Day: “I’m going to not only be the governor of Arizona for four years, I’m going to do two terms. I’m gonna be your worst freaking nightmare for eight years, and we will reform the media as well. We are going to make you guys into journalists again, so get ready. It’s gonna be a fun eight years.”
Kudos, I suppose, to the Nazi cunt for telling us what she’s all about, including her intention to “reform the media” firmly against the First-Amendment protections of the United States Constitution — which, of course, is what only dictators do — but it’s looking like she won’t get to fulfill her fascist fantasy of torturing Arizonans (and the nation) for the next eight years. And that’s in no small part because she told all of us what she’s all about.
Right now, Scary Lake’s Democratic opponent Katie Hobbs is leading in the vote count, 50.7 percent to 49.3 percent, which represents a gap of almost 27,000 votes.
The race is still close enough that it hasn’t been called yet, and Arizona is still counting its ballots, but if I were to bet on it, I would bet on a Hobbs victory.
To be clear, for at least several days before Tuesday’s election I wasn’t expecting Hobbs to win. Her refusal to debate her Nazi-cunt opponent was and still is understandable — why even try to “debate” mean and crazy? — but nonetheless it did strike me as probable campaign malpractice, and while the polls showed Scary Lake winning (right up to Election Day, fivethirtyeight.com gave her a 68 percent chance of winning), I was pretty pissed off at Hobbs, who, it very much appeared, had blown an entirely winnable race (I mean, Scary Lake is an obvious dangerous whack job). And, of course, I’d given Hobbs a total of $80 in small donations (preventing the rise of full-blown fascism is worth spending some money on), so I wasn’t happy about the prospect of having wasted that money, either.
I give the Repugnican-fascists full credit for apparently successfully having induced, with their incessant bluster, the majority of the American voters to believe that Tuesday’s election was going to be a “red wave.” The Repugnican-fascists do bluster very well, while those of us who are sane do not feel the need to blast others with our sane beliefs — because we aren’t insane.
In the end, it looks like former “President” Pussygrabber made candidate Scary Lake — and that he greatly helped break her and many others of his anointed lickspittle candidates on Tuesday.
Because winning a primary election is one thing, and winning the general election that follows it is another.
And keep in mind that Scary Lake barely even won the Repugnican primary in early August; her Repugnican-Classic opponent Karrin Taylor Robson pulled in 43.1 percent to Scary’s 48 percent.
It struck me at that time that Scary Lake was a fairly weak gubernatorial candidate if she couldn’t pull in even 50.0 percent of the Repugnicans’ vote, and it looks like I was correct.
Most Arizonans and most Americans actually just want some fucking peace and fucking quiet for fucking once, and we want actual governance — not incessant egotistical drama perpetrated by fascist former “President” Pussygrabber and his fascist, ring-kissing lemmings, all of whom firmly believe in violating not only reality, but the rule of law.
Tuesday’s nationwide election results bear this out.
As I type this sentence, the pundits have called 48 U.S. Senate seats for the Democrats and 49 seats for the Repugnican-fascists.
However, both Arizona’s Mark Kelly and Nevada’s Catherine Cortez Masto are poised to keep their Senate seats (they’re still counting ballots in both states), which would put the Dems at 50 seats in the Senate, maintaining their control of the chamber.
Both Kelly and Cortez Masto keeping their seats would mean that no, we wouldn’t have to wait until the December 6 runoff election for Georgia’s U.S. Senate seat to know whether the Democrats or the Repugnican-fascists will control the Senate come January; the only question would be whether the Dems will control the Senate with 50 seats or 51 seats. (I had predicted that the Dems would, at the minimum — and probably also at the maximum — maintain 50 seats, so 51 seats to me is just gravy.)
And the “red wave” was supposed to have been so overfuckingwhelming that by now we’d have known that the Repugnican-fascists certainly would take back the U.S. House of Representatives come January.
But right now, the count is 204 seats won for the Dems and 211 seats won for the Repugnicans, with 218 seats necessary for control of the House.
The Repugnicans are closer to the necessary 218 seats than are the Dems, and my best guess is that the Repugnicans will win the House, but with only a small majority.
And what will that small House majority mean?
It will mean that no, the likes of Nazi cunt Marjorie Taylor Greene probably won’t control the House via the spineless Kevin McCarthy (like Charlie McCarthy, he’s a dummy with someone’s hand up his ass, controlling him).
Because all that the Repugnican-fascists care about is winning — they were entirely unfazed that George W. Bush lost the popular vote in 2000 and that Pussygrabber lost it in 2016 yet both became “president” anyway — and it’s the likes of Pussygrabber-endorsed Marjorie Taylor Greene, Lauren Boebert (who might also lose her seat in a very tight race), Mehmet Oz, Scary Lake, Doug Mastriano, Tudor Dixon, Blake Masters (he sounds like a gay porn star), et. al. who just killed the “red wave.” (It was a “red wave” within the crazy-fascist bubble, but for those of us who live in RealityLand, it was no such thing.)
Do the Repugnicans over the next two years really want to keep doing the same things that just prevented their little “red wave”?
Still, I imagine that the Repugnican-fascists in the House won’t be able to control themselves for the next two years. Drunk on power and existing entirely within their crazy-fascist bubble, most likely they’ll overreach vastly, and an already-thoroughly-exhausted-by-Pussygrabberianism American electorate will ensure a blue wave in 2024, sweeping the Repugnican-fascists back out of the House and ensuring that the Dems also still control the Senate and the White House come January 2025.
