First of all, WOW…just WOW! The three that we write most about (Kirby, Billy, and Tony) couldn’t muster up enough votes among their own party to make it to the general election. I guess it wasn’t just us! Billy really got his backside handed to him:
And the other two, who at least didn’t get trounced quite as badly:
But, still lost. We’ve been asked what we are going to do without these three to write about. And our answer to that is:
For we care more about this county being governed by capable people than having material for the blog. Plus, there will always be SOMEONE.
We’ve been looking around the interwebs and have seen that many, many Republicans are super upset about Afzali snagging the nomination. We even saw this proclamation from Cindy:
Most of those upset (including Cindy; so much for mean what you say and say what you mean…oh wait, she’s just mean) are now advocating for Earl Robbins’ Independent campaign, so you can imagine how that’s all going to work out. Please proceed. Cindy and Blaine are amongst those who have already come out to support him. He must be pleased to receive the Silver Linings Playbook Slate endorsement. The infighting/betrayals of this county party are really a sight to behold, folks!
And yes, Cindy made it through to 6th place out of 8th in the BOE race. Even she knows that it almost insurmountable. And if you know anyone who is confused about how to vote in the general election, you can find ample evidence online to share with them. Be forewarned: she considers it “bullying” when you cite her own words, er…uh, her own madness against her. Take heart that she received about 1/2 the votes she did last time, so we aren’t too worried. NONE of her slate made it, so thankfully we don’t have to draw your attention to any of them any longer.
More good news:
Galen Clagett came in last, showing that he wasn’t able to fool enough people into thinking he was some kind of Progressive Democrat!
Let’s all enjoy walking on cloud 9 today. We will regroup to prep for November very soon. Whoo hoo!

I would like to extend a heartfelt and sincere thank you to the republicans of Frederick county for soundly rejecting the three musketwits (and Regina!) from higher office.
While I am a little disappointed that Cindy is still around, I think if she was gone overnight as well it would be like going cold turkey off smack. Too much at once is a shock to the system.
I am sure we will have plenty of lame duck shenanigans and then endless editorials, articles, Facebook posts, etc. as these cartoons refuse to fade into the wallpaper. But i am a little sad to see them go. The circus is packing up and leaving town 😦
At least, we will not need someone to clean up after the elephants anymore!
