Remember Lonesome Rhoades, the character in a Face In The Crowd, who actually hates the good ole boys and gals that he pretends to be one of? And then at the end of the movie, somebody leaks a hot mic moment and old Lonesome becomes a pariah, when people find out what a schmuck and a phony he really is? That’s what you’re about to see.

The context is not clear, here. The best I can extrapolate is that Kari Lake is being coached by the Fox News guy (whoever he is) to not get involved in a commentary about college students and drugs. By the way, college students in Arizona voted overwhelmingly to defeat her.

Lake thinks, for some cockamamie reason, that she’s in the catbird seat and the young people are a bunch of dummies. Wrong-o.

That isn’t going to do Hari Kari any good, let’s just put it that way.

The GOP logo really does it, because in point of fact, that is the motto for the GOP. We found that out in no uncertain terms when the Republican party put Donald Trump atop its 2016 ticket. That is how the GOP feels about all of us, individually and collectively. Thanks for the honesty, Kari. We do appreciate it when people say the quiet part out loud. Breath of fresh air, and all that.

So much for the dope vote.

Katie Hobbs led Kari Lake by 35,000 votes at last count. It’s not over until it’s over.

I do like this tongue in cheek comment.

It is a sad commentary on our culture that a county elections official would find it necessary to explain something like that in those See Spot Run terms. But look at some of the candidates in Arizona and their rabid followers and it makes perfect sense.

  1. And she’s talking trash about the New Times? I moved away 10 years ago, but historically the New Times has done some decent investigative journalism. Not the media outlet to trash, as it’s widely read and respected.

    An outlet for selling marijuana, she says. The New Times was around long before recreational cannabis was legal in AZ.

  2. Just because she had name recognition, doesn’t mean voters liked her. They knew,exactly who she was and what she stood for, and rejected both.
    keep Kari, when you get fewer votes than Katie after all admissible votes are counted,,it means you were not elected and crawl.right back into that deep.MAGA hole you dug for yourself.
    in other words, buh-bye, Felicia.
