Kirk Girard’s GPU Monkeyfuck dies with a wimper

What? General Plan shocker!! Who saw this coming?

Other than everyone, of course.

We saw it coming, and we’re not even smart.

Anyone who thought this board was going to blithely accept the Kirk Girard General Plan Update needs to be issued an encephalitic helmet so he or she can walk down that hall without further injury to the brain. Elections have consequences. The progs flogged the dog on the GPU for more than a dozen years in a process that was, most of the time, laughably fucked, and now they’ve lost control of the process. This is commonly referred to as the will of the voters, the way of the world. Sometimes one side wins, sometimes another. And anyone who can’t hack that basic political fact should go back to working for Ken Miller. He’s always just about one idiot shy of a quorum, and it looks like in this case there are two up for grabs.

And all the Munchkins did rejoice

She's not only merely gone, she's really most sincerely gone

Today was the last Board of Supervisors meeting for Bonnie Neely, who was kicked to the curb by Fourth District voters after 24 loooooong years in office.

There were water works o’ plenty in the board chamber this morning, some of it sincere, as political types bade farewell to one of the most polaraizing figures in Humboldt County history.

It was also the last meeting for the Fifth District’s Jill Duffy, who stepped aside after two terms.

To her, we say goodbye.

To the other, good God it’s about time.
