Landslide! Gavin Newsom is not recalled, not even a little bit.

But, with 46 contenders, there was, of course a “winner”, whose “loss” was actually a “win”…  You guessed it, Frank Stallone. Also, if you listen to Kasie Hunt, Nate Silver and Chris Cillizza… Wait, if you are smart enough to listen to David Waldman and Greg Dworkin, what do you care about those idiots?

What matters is that Newsom won, by running against Trump, and Trump wasn’t even running, just like he won’t be in 2022. Donald Trump is set to be the guy all Democrats and some Republicans will be running against for a long time to come. Meanwhile, Larry Elder was caught using Republican fraud boilerplate, which so far hasn’t worked for anyone. The GQP is martialing their forces elsewhere.

The U.S. Army says active duty soldiers must be vaccinated by December 15. Once vaccinated, most people will just move on to something else they don’t want to do. Some unvaccinated people will wish they had. Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts approves of diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio, measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis B and chickenpox vaccine mandates...

Rioting police in Philadelphia smashed a black woman’s car windows and beat her. Later, they passed around photos of them “rescuing” her child. The city will pay this lady $2 million, in lieu of prosecuting the officers, learning a lesson, etc.

Wretched hives of scum and villainy, the Trump Towers, aren’t what they used to be. The scams are drying up, and so is the rent. In New York, about the only reliable tenants are the 15th floor, which is home of Trump’s MAGA PAC, and up to 3 employees, sometimes.
