But I am really sad about Tim Donnelly, edged out 19%-14..5% by the ludicrous Neel Kashkari in the weird California Monster primary. Not only is Kashkari not a conservative—he supports homosexual marriage and Amnesty—he's barely even a Republican, having voted for Obama in 2008. It is no coincidence, comrades, that GOP Establishment favorites so often turn out to be Democrats—think Arlen Specter or Charlie Crist. The California GOP Establishment has simply lost the will to live.
Further proof of how tightly MSM messaging is controlled: no-one seems to have drawn the obvious conclusion from the extraordinary divergence in expenditure in the race:
Kashkari was better financed than Donnelly, giving $2 million to his own campaign and raising roughly another $2 million, compared to the $447,000 Donnelly raised this year. Kashkari also benefited from an independent-expenditure push by major California donor Charles Munger
