I'm very sure that you're completely tired of this election cycle. I don't blame you. If I lived in a country that was so full of dopes that it was perilously close to electing a dope to its highest office, I'd be upset too. I mean, if there were only two major parties where I lived, and one offered a candidate who had solid policy proposals and serious plans to achieve them, while the other nominated a man so averse to the facts, so clearly obsessed with his own personal advancement over the general welfare, that there should be no contest. But there is and we could possibly be doomed.
But let's think about this. Would the next Congress sign off on anything a theoretical President Racist P. Yam might propose? I suspect not and this makes me feel a little bit better.
So why not throw a fit about something we can do something about? This year, here in California, we have 17 state-wide initiatives covering everything from plastic bags (again) to legalizing marijuana (again) to requiring condoms for porn. Thanks to the confluence of the genius of the Internet and the idiocy of A Jaunty Little Blog, I have made a dumb promise to cover each and every one of these initiatives in detail.
Starting as soon as I get around to it, the posts will start coming for each initiative in reverse order (because it'll look cooler in the blog) from Proposition 67 right up to Proposition 51.
Excited? Of course you are. Me too.
