Where is my RT love on the Logue news my MSM tweeps? Sigh.

 

@cmarinucci A fine American tradition is to kick out the reporters who will be voting for Obama.

 

Logue's name will still appear on the State Senate ballot, of course, as those ballots have already been printed.

 

We wish Assemblyman Logue Godspeed for a quick recovery from his health challenges.

 

Logue was in a tough battle against fellow north-state Assemblyman Jim Nielsen, who will now coast into this non-coastal Senate seat.

.@SenFeinstein is in the "faux concern" about gas prices game. Pandering 2 voters who drive when she supports policies that hike gas prices.

 

No doubt @terrytamminen and his extreme environmental radical buddies are loving the high gas prices.

 

If @JerryBrownGov feigning concern about gas prices is total bullshit. You can't credibly care when you promote policies that raise prices.

 

Truth: @JerryBrownGov enthusiastically supports onerous regulations that will drive gas prices up much higher than this.

 

There's no logical Yes on 30, Yes on 38 strategy. If both pass only top vote getter goes into effect. If u like 1 u must defeat the other.

 

I guess it would be a buzz kill to tell @mikegatto how his new baby already is in debt to the federal and state government.

 

@tedlieu Prop 38 supporters like M. Munger understand that if Prop 30 gets more vote, 38 can't go into effect.

 

Those who like that #PROP38 is guaranteed school funding (unlike #PROP30), remember only one can go into effect. You have to knock down 30!
