All the votes from the primary election are in and now the work begins! We knocked out the entire 2nd rate hate slate, but the spirit of John Wilkes Booth still runs through 3/4ths of the OG hate slate.
Something is askew in District 5! Instead of the local Republikkins letting team normal, in the form of Michael Blue, continue on they put forth someone who thinks that Kirby is a hero.
Karl Bickel won the Democratic nod for what we call the High Sheriff around these parts. We’ve written quite a bit about the current High Sheriff, but feel free to revisit here.
Jessica will go up against the Chief of Staff for carpet bagger Alex Mooney who is currently under investigation for various ethics violations. We recently told the tale of how he didn’t want to raise the teenage marriage rate to 17 because he still believes in child brides. So you know we all need to rally behind Jessica on this one.
Our two Frederick County GOP gubernatorial candidates faced off with the dumbest one winning. From this concession post, we don’t think that Kelly is going to be backing him in the general!
There’s of course many more races, and we promise to get to them. We must keep up our momentum and make sure that we keep our county government both sane and functional!
This election year is going to be a hot mess! And this is coming from a group of gals who followed Billy Shreve, Kirby Deluater, Blaine Young, and Tony Chmelik for years! We must guard our local government against the people who have no idea what’s going on outside their partisan bubble.
We’ll get you all nice and updated with our perennial foe, Cindy Rose, first! If you want to steel yourself with a shot of tequila, you’ll get no judgement from us!
This last post is seriously one of the dumbest things we have ever read. Why fund studies? Why do experiments? Cindy has all the anecdotal evidence y’all will ever need! Folks, if we allow someone who wants to ban books, remove sex education from the curriculum because she finds it disrespectful, and apparently believes her stories trump peer-reviewed studies, why do we even have a school system? But that’s the point: make no mistake, that’s the absolute goal of Cindy and these other Republicans. They want to dismantle and delegitimize public education.
Unfortunately we need to move on to Dan Cox and his delusional campaign for governor.
Seems like a good time to bring this back up!
Wondering what he’s been up to during this legislative session?
NB: Not that we would have been Tories back in the day, but Cox aligns himself instinctively? habitually? both? with overthrowing the government. Since he thinks Pence is a traitor, given all we know about current events, it’s a terrible look.
The opposition to a ghost gun ban is really special in light of the fact that a child was shot at a Montgomery County high school recently with a ghost gun. Dan (who didn’t attend public school nor do his children) doesn’t seem to realize that not all parents are good parents, and that for some kids school is the only place where they can talk to a trusted adult. Forcing school personnel to disclose certain information can lead to real harm to these children, both psychologically and physically. Impeaching an out-going governor is also a fun throw-in! Wonder where he copied and pasted that from! But Dan doesn’t live in the real world, just click on through this link to see our previous reporting on his past antics.
One last look at Dan’s amazing logic:
Isn’t it stunning how many Republicans worship Putin these days?
We’ll end on the other Republican candidate for governor, since dismantling public education seems to be the theme of this election year:
Let’s unpack this a bit shall we? Charter schools have not shown any better outcomes, especially the for-profit ones. Which are the ones Republicans push for because it makes money for their cronies. Schools have been open and those that have closed around the country have been the ones WITHOUT mask mandates. Curriculums and standards ARE already posted online, stop being lazy and look. What defines partisan politics? We would love an answer please! And do these safe school initiatives include keeping weapons out of the schools? We’ll be waiting……
