Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

He's been called "Putin's favorite congressman," but if that's true, the Russian president might soon have to find a new favorite: Pro-Russia Republican California Rep. Dana Rohrabacher appears to be headed for a narrow defeat against Democratic challenger Harley Rouda in California's 48th congressional district. Rouda is leading Rohrabacher 50.7 percent of the vote to 49.3 percent, with 100 percent of precincts reporting, according to the California Secretary of State's Office. However, mail-in ballots can be received until Friday, and the final vote likely won't be certified until December.

Rohrabacher earned his appellation for his dogged opposition of the Magnitsky Act, which barred members of the Vladimir Putin regime allegedly involved in the death of Russian whistleblower Sergei Magnitsky from entering the U.S. or accessing American banks, according to Politico.

It's too bad because he is a drug war opponent, called one of the 5 best reps on marijuana policy.

Can someone explain to me why it takes California so long to count votes? And before you say "the number of people," that means a commensurate increase in tax dollars to pay people to count votes, so please offer a further explanation.

Easy to explain. Democrat control of the state and the commiserate cratering in academic performance, now ranking 41st in the nation. They take a long time to do everything (not just counting) because the state has been systematically dumbed-down by the ruling elite that prefer a state of extreme wealth and extreme poverty rather than a vibrant, educated middle class. This has always been the end result of socialist policies.

So says one of the "dumbed down." You don't know what you are even talking about.

Yes, how foolish of me. I am sure there are billions of people that have lifted out of poverty by socialism rather than placed into crushing powverty ruled over by the 0.01% that control the government in, oh I don't know...China, Vietnam, Loas, Cambodia, the former USSR, Eastern Europe, Cuba, Venezuela, California. But, I am sure you have an equal amount of cases where this did not occur.

Spoken like a backwoods inbred from Alabama. The only reason California has any problems is because it is forced to subsidize economic drains like you in ------ red states.

Conflating those, (and it's Laos, BTW) with Socialism is sloppy. Your post indicates no sign of having an actual developed intellect capable of differentiating between Socialism, Communism, Capitalism or Hybrid economic systems, nor systems of Governing like Plutocracies, Autocracies, Democratic Republics, or Parliamentary Democracies.

Null, who was so pretentious and adamant on defining what Socialism is, gave you a "Newsworthy." That's classic.

Only idiots who have never been to Cambodia or California conflate the two.

So you're willing to elect traitors if they like weed?

He's especially willing to elect traitors if it pisses off libs.

He's pissed off all the time, so why shouldn't libs be too?

He's like that HIV positive guy who had unprotected sex with as many guys as possible, so they could get AIDS too.

I think that's why Andrea, a mattress walked out on him.
