Tomorrow's news today: primary election results

It looks like it was a good day nationally, and a bad day in California.

Senator Blanche ObamaCare Lincoln lost her primary in Arkansas and will be retiring, and conservative candidate Sharron Angle beat establishment candidate Sue Lowden in Nevada.

In California, no good news. Carly FAILorina, a RINO McCain-wannabe, beat libertarianish Tom Campbell and Tea Party favorite Chuck DeVore. In a year when Barbara Boxer should be vulnerable, FAILorina is so widely despised even among Republicans that she will lose in a landslide.

Meg Whitman won easily and has a decent chance to beat Jerry Brown, at which point she will establish the second Schwarzenegger administration.

Prop. 14, which will eliminate third-party candidates from the general election, passed.

More bad news: RINOs Abel Maldonado and Mike Villines, who voted for the biggest state tax increase in the history of the U.S., won their primaries for higher offices.

That's how I see it playing out. Any deviation in California would be upside from here.

OK, it looks like I may already be wrong on Arkansas. Let's hope I'm wrong on Prop 14 too.

UPDATE 2: Yippee!!! The vile Villines lost!

Let me offer you a ray of hope, W.C.: Tammy Bruce is going for Meg Whitman (as a non-declared voter, she can select from any party’s primary — and is doing the Republican ballot). She says that she is told there is an “evil Meg”, who makes grown men quake in their boots. Tammy also indicated public sector union leaders are a personal target Whitman has. I think Tammy hopes Meg will take the aggressive tact of New Jersey Governor Christie, which is making him popular with conservatives of all stripes nationwide.

It's not much, but I feel so bad after reading your post, I wanted to offer you a little hope!

My thoughts on Fiorina, if she should win. I will remember 2 specific things about Babs Boxer when I pull the November ballot lever: Her insulting treatment of General Walsh and her aggressive support of economically toxic cap&trade.

Once we remove Boxer, we are on-top of the new Senator continuously -- and working on promoting a conservative challenger next time.

The system is damaged; it will take several election cycles to undo it all.

Thanks for the hope, Mut!

I wish I could be at the election night party -- have fun!

Happy Super Tuesday!
