Join Us For Liveblogging, Tonight, Coast To Coast!

by Ken Layne

This movie is so much better than any primary night in history.From New Jersey to South Carolina, Maine to Arkansas, Northern California to Southern California, tonight will be the most explosive Primary Election of June 2010, and you can be there, live, by simply being wherever you are, and following the news while drinking! This is what we call Liveblogging In America, and we hope you’ll join us for hours of potential fun. The action starts whenever polls close in the Easternmost state holding an election — check Wikipedia for details! — and will only end once Orly Taitz claims her victory as Secretary of State of California! Okay, load up on the liquor and pills and “chronic” and health food and dangerous-yet-legal weapons, and we’ll see you back here at approximately 8 p.m. Eastern Time, 5 p.m. Pacific.

No movie with Telly Savalas in it, even playing a crazed psycho killer, can fairly be characterized as “good.”

Ms. Taitz will be appearing via hologram on CNN to give the revolution’s secret signal freeing us from our Kenyan slave master… and to offer 10% off dental cleanings, now through June.

In honor of chickens-for-healthcare candidate Sue Lowdon (who’s about to disappear forever, probably), here’s an interesting conundrum: What do you pay the vet who amputates your hen’s leg in? People?

Way Cool Larry June 8, 2010 at 5:04 pm

Just the thought of seeing wetter and tighter Orly win gives me a woody.

Snarkalicious June 8, 2010 at 5:07 pm

Can you imagine the impact if as many people voted in the primaries as did for Sanjaya? We’d run out of little old ladies to give bad instructions.

dr.giraud June 8, 2010 at 5:08 pm

I’m dead freakin’ serious about this. You should pray to whatever diety or desert ghost you support that Orly Taitz wins that primary. Because pure GOP comedy trumps reality any day of the week. Plus anyone with two or three synapses firing knows that whatever the 2010 electorate does, within ten years it’ll be voided by the new darker skinned majority. So let’s speed that up by supporting Orly and Rand!!!!! Crazy Train platform 2010!!! (If I could’ve worked that poor Sikh lady into this I would’ve. But unfortunately I view her as more of a victim than a perp at this point, no matter how stupid her political beliefs might be).

The “Daily Kos Blog” has a handy list of primary closings.

edgydrifter June 8, 2010 at 5:22 pm

I don’t know. Without Hillary to rail against, this whole deal feels kind of blah. I wouldn’t even call it a primary. More like a secondary or tertiary. I’d rate it even lower, but thankfully we have Dr. Wetntite for a sprinkling of unfocused crazy.

Vulpes82 June 8, 2010 at 5:25 pm

I just participated in the NJ primary! But, eh, it was just a bunch of town council and stuff, and Rob Andrews, who would have to sodomize an underage male prostitute with a fresh Jersey tomato and some Silver Queen corn to not win (not because of the underage male prostitute, but for wasting the tomato and the corn; we’re very serious about our tomatoes and corn ’round these parts).

4tehlulz June 8, 2010 at 5:27 pm

Oh man, I have a job and stuff, so I can’t stay up to see democracy die at the hands of Orly Tainz.

Time zones are an Obamunist plot.

jus_wonderin June 8, 2010 at 5:40 pm

Drinking game? Can’t I just do my evening regular drinking? I like to think of it as my second job.

Oh, and 1994. SHOT.

Troubledog June 8, 2010 at 5:51 pm

Orly is hilarious. Anything that puts more Orly quotes and soundbites into circulation is a-ok with yrs trly.

Also, for the runup to the general, it would be good if a right wing blogger claimed to have had an inappropriate physical relationship with her. Then she could be on every channel all day long. I’ll make some calls.

Also too I was heading out to buy some Greenies instead of drinking to give my liver a rest, when I realized Greenies are dog treats. Damn.

What are the ethics of asking your kid for some of her weed? I’m presuming she has weed, I certainly did at her age. Goddamm, I can’t do that. OK, what are our drinking words? “The,” “It,” “Win,” “Lose,” & etc.? What are we all drinking?

SayItWithWookies June 8, 2010 at 6:08 pm

[re=594729]Katydid[/re]: See, this is why pot needs to be legal — so the parents don’t have to look terminally unhip by schnorring from their kids’ stashes.

Snarkalicious June 8, 2010 at 6:11 pm

[re=594729]Katydid[/re]: UR doinit rong. The trick is to toss your kid’s room until you find the pot, then nail them for something else. But, then, you mystify them by sending them to a friend’s house. Then, when they come back and the pot is gone, you get a comedic mix of relief, paranoia, room cleaning and silence from them.

Mom taught me so well.

Ooooh, ooh, yes, yes, Orly is Borat in drag, fap, fap, fap, gimme more 25 year old Bowmore everytime i think of her (him?, it?) being Steve Martin to my Bill Murray in “Little shop of horrors”. Fuck, I think my brain just exploded…….

Jukesgrrl June 8, 2010 at 6:23 pm

Ohh, I love to be “turned loose.” I’ll be there.

My victory party wish list:

*Las Vegas Mayor Goodman, who claims to be an independent, showing up at everyone’s parties with his showgirls in tow.
*Arrests (hopefully the guest of honor!) at Gov. Gibbons’ failure party.
*All the chicken costumes that were banned from the polls.
*Many photos of Blanche Lincoln crying her eye make-up off.
*Nikki, partying as only girls named Nikki know how. (Is it too much to ask for Caribou Barbie to show up with her new appendages?)
*Orly, Orly, Orly with a victory speech that will set a new record for conspiracy-flavored word salad.

I’m off to freeze little mint leaves into my ice cubes for that festive touch.

Can’t blog ’bout Oraly, too biz-zay. Shaving bunghole.

whiterabid June 8, 2010 at 6:47 pm

I think Orly could win because California votes for candidates with accents. She sounds a little like Zsa Zsa Gabor. For people who grew up with Johnnie Carson, Zsa Zsa or that crazy woman from Brazil with a one word name like Cher are considered middle of the road.

Litlebritdifrnt June 8, 2010 at 6:53 pm

Dear Flying Spaghetti Monster:

I promise I will worship your noodly awsomeness every day for the rest of my life if you let Orly win the primary.

May you reign in noodly awsomeness forever.

CNN says John McCain is running an ad where McCain attacks challenger J.D. Hayworth as a ‘Washington insider.’

Mn Independent says Michele Bachmann is taking heat from New Jersey Tea Partiers for recording robo-calls for the non-Tea Party candidate, Rep. Chris Smith.

About 20 members of the disability rights group ADAPT began shouting just minutes into Nancy Pelosi’s speech, continuing for some 20 minutes. The group is calling for the passage of the Community Choice Act, which would make it easier for the disabled to receive care in their own homes instead of at nursing homes.

Whether you drink and/or toke stock up on enough to get through this November.

[re=594767]chascates[/re]: Ah, Xuxa; it was on just before the opening of homeroom my senior year of high school, and we’d sometimes grab one of the TVs on a cart and watch it waiting for the school day to start; one of the few kids’ shows that could serve the libido of high school boys then (the other was Power Rangers in Kimberly-centric episodes, especially when she wore her gymnastics gear).

[re=594771]ShamWow[/re]: Now, the CA Dems still have the 72-year-old pothead. Yeah, he actually did a good job before at the position he’s running for; but there is still comedy potential; just comedy potential married to competence, which is probably the best kind (see also: Clinton, Bill).
