As you can always predict, GQP candidates never go away quietly. Here is the latest of one such loser.
In this case, as many of you already know, the Arizona Attorney General race was the last of the 4 biggies to be called for Democrat Kris Mayes by a mere 510 votes. Of course, this is going to an automatic recount so we must wait for the official certification. Hopefully we will be able to declare a “quad-fecta” very soon.
But don't you fret! GQP candidate Abe Hamadeh is on the scene! And he will do everything in his power to protect YOU (Arizona voters whose voices have already been heard) by suing any and every Democrat and I think every single county, asking a judge to prevent certification of the November 8 election results.
AND…. wait for it……..
Certify HIMSELF (Mr. GQP Election Denier) as the actual winner.
Because…. you know, reasons (see: I am a sore lose and I don’t believe in actual democracy).
The lawsuit comes after two Republican-controlled counties (Cochise and Mojave) delayed certifying the results of the election because the people didn't choose them, and they are little crybabies.
Where things stand now per AZCentral:
Hamadeh trails Mayes by 510 votes with all of Arizona's ballots counted. The race is already headed to an automatic recount, per state law, because the vote differential between the candidates is less than .5 of a percentage point. The recount will occur after the certification of election results Dec. 5.

If you prefer to hear directly from the crybaby himself — enjoy:
We have A LOT to be thankful for this Thanksgiving (for those of us in the USA). One thing is how well we did in these historic midterms in expanding our power and protecting democracy.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Thanks for reading!
I was chatting with a personal friend who read this diary and he had some thoughts about the screen shot of the loser. My friend is a brilliant graphic designer. Here are his thoughts:
To start with, U.S. Flag code:
Not excusing the photo: The flag IS backward on RIGHT SLEEVES on uniforms and on right aircraft fuselages/fins according to the rules that the flag should be seen as “blowing in the wind” with forward motion of the man or the plane (in particular, that it not be seemingly “hoisted on a flagpole attached by the stripes”:
1. DESIGN IDIOCY
So, the photo may be the work of an idiot graphic designer/photo editor, people with design and human perception training.
Possible history in that mentality:
- The “hero” image, aka AZ asshole, goes on left to give him (it) primary impact, since westerners scan left to right.
- The eye is to be directed inward to content from the edges, so this (admittedly slight) facing bias has asshole face inward;
- So, a flipped image where an idiot ignored the flag. And could EASILY have photoshopped it corrected, more idiocy.
- And maybe asshole directed an idiot to flip it and both missed it.
MUCH more likely: he’s a GORUCK people-killing weapons-loving asshole, ignoring U.S. “respect” convention with their own “respect” symbolism:
