A Good Old-Fashioned Ass Whoopin'

I've been up since 5:30, so this will be quick.

We are 0-for-RON. As of this writing, 80% of the returns are in and none of the issues has broken 40%. This is beyond WTE. This is the Titanic.

In the insult-to-injury category, Issues 1 and 7 passed and the school levy went down by 10 points. And the guy I liked for school board didn't get in.

The one silver lining is in the judge's races. Belfance and Michael both look to have won. Baxter lost badly. It would have been nice to get her into the 40's, but I'll take anything at this rate.

Recriminations from the lefty blogosphere will reverberate for a week or so. Hopefully, in the end cooler heads will prevail and we can try to at least build on what has been organized for the RON effort.
