From the Department of Oh My Fucking Flying Spaghetti Monster Please Pass the Popcorn:

A novel California primary that premieres Tuesday was intended to produce moderates, but in California’s U.S. Senate race, it could yield a challenger who claims President Obama was born in Kenya.

Incumbent Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, 78, running for a fourth full term, faces 23 challengers, including 14 Republicans, the best known of whom is litigious Orange County “birther” Orly Taitz, a Russian Israeli emigre who has appeared on national television with her claims that Obama faked his birth certificate.

Polls taken by robocalls, including those commissioned by Taitz, show Feinstein with a wide lead, trailed by a strange assortment of single-digit rivals, in some cases led by Taitz. Whoever finishes second Tuesday, from any party, wins the chance to take on Feinstein in November.

What do you think, Stinquers? Should the California Stinquers all cast their votes for Orly tomorrow just to fuck with the GOP?

[SF Chron: CA Primary Could Pit Birther Against Feinstein]

I wish you had thought of this earlier, Lefty- I already mailed my ballot.

@Tommmcatt May Just Have Some MJ In His System As Well, So What?: Unless Dodger can talk some reason into me in the next 9 hours, I’ll be sauntering up the street to my polling place to cast my vote for Orly to fuck with the Republicans.

@SanFranLefty: I didn’t notice either, but I spend all my ballot time trying to figure out who’s trying to fuck me over.

@nojo: RJ Reynolds and Phillip Morris are running two ads during every commercial break tonight telling me how the socialists who hate AmeriKKKa want to make smokers pay an extra $1 a pack to pay for cancer research. So obviously I will be voting yes on whatever the cigarette companies tell me I need to vote no.

@SanFranLefty: Oh, golly, another punitive smokes tax. Thanks again, Rob Reiner!

@nojo: Dude, California has only the 33rd most expensive cigarette packs of the 50 states plus DC. We have to get to the top 10! Besides, you can always take a road trip east to the Morongo Casino and pick up some cheap ciggies and cheap gas for the trip back to Sandy Eggo.

The SF proposition on changing the structure of the recycling company is the big deal here, naturally.

ADD: Don’t tell TommCatt, but the super-ripped Thunder From Down Under will be at the Morongo next month.

@SanFranLefty: Fine, fine. Exorbitantly tax whatever makes Rob Reiner unhealthily fat, and we’ll call it even.

Just to fuck with them? SanFran, what makes you think they’re not in a mad rush to put Taitz on the ballot, themselves? These are the GOP base, after all (AKA: the clinically insane).

@Serolf Divad: Regardless, think how much material Stinque will have for the next five months? This will make Christine “I Am Not a Witch” O’Donnell seem boring in comparison.

@SanFranLefty: Too bad, I already voted for the Old Jewish Lady. One of two Old Jewish Ladies who represent Cal in the Senate, each of whom is so ineffective they could be playing mahjong, for fuck’s sake.

If Tommy thinks the Thunder Down Under guys aren’t big enough, here’s something even bigger in the same neighborhood.

@Dodgerblue: I remember voting Boxer in…20 years ago? Yikes!

@SanFranLefty: Thanks for the reminder. I’m ashamed to admit that I almost spaced on voting. I’m home sick so trying to keep up with work and listening to jazz has been my whole day.

I will now bestir myself to vote for Orly and whatever taxes are on the ballot.
