2018 Elections fread: A Blue Wave of Failure

First guesses on non-certified primary results.  Sanders and Ocasio's endorsements don't look that great, neither do Trump's.
I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, shattered underpance lies,
With blown elastic, and exploded back,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Doktor Howl, Spag of Spags:
Look on my ass, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

I have no real thoughts on the primary results, but I thought I'd pop in just to remind everyone that:

a) there has been no action at the Federal level to counteract any possible hacking during this election, and
b) the Democrats will need, on average, to get 10% more votes than the Republicans to take Congress, due to gerrymandering

Downballot races are going pretty well for the progressive candidates, we'll see how well they hold in the generals. Failure at the local level is one of the key criticisms of the DNC, so it matters that the loud new people are doing well on that stage.

And here is the green party spoiler that may have handed a republican an election in Ohio.

I'm not even gonna quote this.  The entire thing is win, no excerpts do it justice.

Every fucking chunk of that article is hilarious. It's like some sort of parable of the strange times.

Republicans have always been Imperialists.
