a.k.a. Hot Candidate vs. Vaping Congressman, a.k.a. CA’s 50th.
It could flip! It could happen! Ammar Campa-Najjar is the opponent, a former Obama Labor Department guy really into apprenticeships.
I love interactive fiction, and have messed around with Inklewriter (a much simpler thing from the same company) before. Interactive fiction has a low bar of entry and a very diverse set of people making it; basically it’s pretty great.
If you are in California and haven’t turned in your ballot yet! Here we go! Do the voting thing! Ballots can still be mailed and will be counted, or they can also be dropped off at libraries or polling places.
By like 500 votes with 98% fully reporting? What the hell is wrong with today. Someone reboot the today machine. ETA: I mean, it’s good, but it’s WEIRD AS FUCK. TODAY IS WEIRD. I EXPECT JACKALOPES ANY SECOND.
There are now a good number of things going on tomorrow, whew!
While this is definitely late-organized, and there is also something planned for the day earlier at the Federal Building, and there’s still a chance he’ll wuss out and not come, it looks like this is the one that’s happening at the wall while he’s here.
Isn’t it lovely that despite multiple disasters that have left many dead and homeless, the president’s first visit to the state will be to see his fucking wall?
What! Issa (CA 49) drops out! Everyone do their happy dance!
And not that it’s important, but I do have to mention that he’s the cute one.
Salted caramel Pepsi has disgusting-ass fake sugar in it.
I really should have kept more up on the news today, instead of getting hit with this when I’m already awake at an unreasonable hour.
Headline says it all. (ETA: okay, I guess if I put two links it won’t automatically do the showing-it thing: headline is “Homeland Security to Bypass Environmental Regulations In San Diego Border Wall Construction”)
So Darrell Issa was up on his roof while protesters were outside his office, which looked pretty amusing!
Not just, like, one person but several, somehow? Who have actually read the book? Yeah, I dunno. Pretty sure they’re not all joking.
I like that no one in the thread is standing up for him.
Nice, nice. Talking about it practically and pragmatically like it’s a thing that could actually happen. Rock on, Toni Atkins.
It was stuck at 5k-ish for a while, so I was all “welp, it was close but Issa’s still got it,” but? It got a lot closer all of a sudden??? And will now be going even slower?????
