Newsom didn't "get lucky." Elder was the ONLY thing the GOP could offer.

I keep seeing pundits say Larry Elder was the best thing to happen to Newsom.

But Elder was the ONLY thing the GOP could offer. Their base will only vote for conspiracists who support Trump & white supremacy.

So Newsom didnít "get lucky." This is what the GOP is now.

**************

IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM OUR GOVERNOR:
Gov. Gavin Newsom: "Just in the last few days, the former president put out, saying this election was rigged. Democracy is not a football. You don't throw it around ... we may have defeated Trump, but Trumpism is not dead in this country."

?s=20

***************

We dodged another bullet in California, which is great news, but I've got to be honest, we can't keep living on the edge like this. The current system is rigged against democracy and that has to change.

1. Sound defeat of recall was not fitting narrative.

2. Yup

Elder is a typical Trump Republican now, they're running hundreds of candidates the same or to the right of him nationwide. This is who they are now.

3. Exactly. They put up 40 candidates, and Elder was the one that floated to the top.

If you take a roomful of people, and Elder is the cream, then that room was not populated with quality material.

8. Yeah, a bit surprising

that it didn't occur to the GQPee masterminds who put together this recall effort to line up a better candidate. Last time, they had Ahnuld, who had enough appeal (God help us) to attract sufficient votes.

This time, at least they could have gone through the motions of promoting e.g. Faulconer, former mayor of San Diego, in an effort to attract broader support.

5. May I offer Mr. Elder a one finger salute, and the elephant you rode in on.

6. Could be good for us in 2022

if they keep offering up fringe extremists promoting a failed Trumpy platform.

7. Exactly!

Fringe extremists are what they are, what they've supported and what they keep bellowing. The Frankenstein monster has escaped and the GOP has lost control.

Make them own that truth in every race.
