    A bit more than 21% voter turnout so far in the Denver runoff, but last numbers posted at this link were from 2 days ago.

    Obviously we'll see significantly higher turnout numbers by tomorrow at 7:00.

    My standard disclaimer – I have as close to zero sympathy as possible for people who have the opportunity to vote but choose not to. If it winds up as a low turnout runoff, so be it, and low turnout would be IMHO solely the fault of the people who chose not to vote. I'm just posting numbers for perspective.

    Perhaps today will be a day of humility and reflection deflection for BoBo?

      42 USC sec. 1988, Lauren.  Plaintiff's attorneys get their fees paid by the losing defendants.  Perhaps a better question, Q-bert, is why did the state insist on passing a blatantly unconstitutional law and thereby put the plaintiff's attorneys' fees bill on the back of the taxpayers of TN?

        I remember the millions that the Colorado taxpayers had to pony up to reimburse Colorado Legal Initiatives Project for the constitutional challenge to Amendment Two in the 1990's.

        I really think that the groups that place these brain farts on the ballot should be required to post a cost bond which includes attorney's fees in the event that the initiative is successfully challenged in court.

      It is unsurprising that BoBo, an idiot, does not know what "begs the question" means.

      More entertaining, the judge who issued that ruling is a Trump appointee. He found the statute in question not just unconstitutional but go-fuck-yourself unconstitutional. The opinion, available here, is 70 pages long but a damn fine read.

    Anyone who is interested in the mystery about WHY, Mesa County commissioner Janet Rowland seems obsessed with firing county health director Jeff Kuhr, should log on to the blog of Anne Landman. Fascinating story.

    Grab a fresh box of Depends and hide the ketchup. Someone delivered the bad news.

    A Trump Indictment Could Be Near. Here’s What We Don’t Yet Know.

    For a president who was deeply mistrustful of what he believes was a deep state conspiracy against him, classified documents about or written by his many suspected enemies would be personally valuable, especially if Trump’s plan is to return to the White House and exact retribution on anyone who has wronged him. To me, that seems the simplest explanation for why he would resist the government’s efforts to recover the documents, even to the point of risking a charge of obstruction. 

    For Trump, giving up these documents would be like giving up his trump cards.

    So Far, So Good on Biden's Industrial Policy

    It’s been less than a year since they made their way through Congress, but President Biden’s two signature industrial policy laws—the Inflation Reduction Act and the CHIPS and Science Act—have already started to reshape America’s economy in far-reaching ways. 

    These laws have spurred private investment in critical industries like semiconductor and electric vehicle manufacturing, sparking a massive shift in the structure and focus of the American economy that’s largely flown under the public’s radar screens. It’s far too early to declare victory, of course, but the spate of reports and data that have come out since the beginning of the year paint a picture of an industrial policy off to an impressive start.

    Finally, someone who may get me to stop talking about Ralph Nader and Jill Stein ….

    Cornel West Announces Third-Party Bid for President – The New York Times (

    The People's Party has a candidate for president. Big question: Will the Greens also nominate Cornel West?

    Cue the Ride of Valkyries.

    Is Fluffy moonlighting as her publicist again? What does NYC issues have to do with CD-3? WWJD? (the real one, who spoke Hebrew and had brown skin)

    1 John 3:17-18 

    But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.
