FTFA: The crowd heckled Brnovich as he stood to defend himself. "I know people are upset," he said, after reeling off the various election-related court cases his office has taken on. "But we're conservatives. The constitution matters." When this plea didn't work, he changed his tone: "When the truth hurts, just shut the hell up, all right?"

Exactly--the Conservatives are all in the Democratic Party or Independents now. You are only playing to REACTIONARIES. Only radical cultists are left in your Party.

Okay, but who was he debating?

"And some, I assume, are good people."

Jim Lamon rants about outsourcing manufacturing to China ... despite his plentiful business dealings in China.

OK, but how big are their hands? 2016 taught us that we don't want any problems in that area. Believe me!

Wow....the stupidity is amazing....and horrifyingly enough one of these fascist may easily win.

Blake Masters

I cannot imagine a name that sounds more like a 80s movie villain than this. This is the name of a guy whose millionaire father bought the land under some important institution for a town's middle-class misfits, and he's also trying to fark the main protagonist's girlfriend. Oh, and he's white. Sooo white.

And Lamon called for jail time for employers who don't verify their workers' immigration status.

Well that sounds like it'll punish job creators so he's not gonna get far.

When Kelly won his Senate seat in 2020, beating out incumbent Republican Martha McSally, it was the first time Arizona sent two Democrats to the Senate in decades. So this time around, the race is again likely to be extremely competitive.


Alternatively, electing a Democrat has never been a more sure thing.  But who am I to get in the way of rock-solid logic from The Phoenix New Times, Phoenix' news leader since 1970.

Lamon runs on sedition.   "Yeah, I was a fake elector."

In an alternate world, I'm watching a reality tv show called Cops Feds, and they are following G-Men as they close in on a debate stage, where Lamon has been announced to show, and as he sees the Feds, he bolts.  A Chinese guy trips him as he's just about to make it out of the auditorium and the Feds catch him.

Yeah that's, uh, actually a reasonable stance.

Pretty sure Blake Masters was the family patriarch on Falcon Crest.

"moved to the right" ... "shifted to the right" ... "sharp turn to the right"

This is why primaries should be non-binding or not held at all.  On the Republican side, it has essentially turned into a dick waving contest over who is the most conservative one in the room.  It is a parody at this point.  And it is what keeps dragging the party towards fascism.

Put 'em all on the general ballot and use a ranked choice system to decide the winner.

He was a fan of Ron Paul growing up.

Why yes, he has quoted Herman Goerring before.

It's interesting that fark never links to the crazy awfulness of Democratic primary debates.

I like the jungle primaries. I'm also in favor of ranked-choice voting, I'm not sure which is better, but I think the jungle primary system is really good for achieving political moderation. I think the country needs a pretty farking big leap to the left, but things like that don't really happen overnight or without a big backlash, so moderation may be the best we can hope for in the short term. In extremely liberal places, jungle primaries leave you with two Democrats to vote for in the general, and conservatives can vote for the more the conservative of the two. But the same applies in extremely conservative places, so while Democrats don't have any chance of winning, they can at least try to block the craziest asshole.

Maybe come up with alternative to 'Jungle' Primary before you try and sell Republicans on the idea.  These water heads don't trust LEGITIMATE elections because some Svengali told them so.  A five way ranked choice race?  Should be sorted out about 6-8 weeks after the polls close.

All true, then you look at him and find he's a Hitler youth straight out of Central casting (except for the dark hair, make him blond and he's Himmler's wet dream.)
