Armed with a deep knowledge of the law, politics and public policy, as well as pen filled with all the colors stolen from Pepperland, the Blue Meanie’s mission is to pursue and prosecute the hypocrites, liars, and fools of politics and the media – which, in practical terms, is nearly all of them. Don’t even try to unmask him or he’ll seal you in a music-proof bubble and rendition you to Pepperland for a good face-stomping. Read blog posts by the infamous and prolific AZ Blue Meanie here.


  1. This is why it is tough to live in Hawaii (2:30 p.m. now, 3 hours back from MST) when East Coast electoral state votes are already being announced. Polls close HST at 6 p.m. (11 p.m EST). By then, the Presidential election may be decided.

  2. There is voter supression in AZ. Who monitors what signatures are thrown out? Many like myself did not receive their early ballots. The website to register was broken a few months ago.

    • You still have time to check with your county recorder office re: your voter status. Call! Polls close at 7:00 p.m.

      • I waited in the early voter two line system. One to check in and one to wait until they printed the ballot. I did vote and I did need the restroom due to medical needs but there were none nearby.I did not want to wait in line election day and find out I was per website I was at the wrong place.
        I wonder who oversees the ballots they throw out for signature discrepancy ! Did they really try to call 5,000 people? Maricopa County is the 4 th largest county in the country and what happens here affects a lot of families, working poor, women and children. We are already recognized for prosceutor misconduct, tent city and racism . There is much distrust and fear here of the persons running Marciopa County as federal lawsuits illustrate .
        Firthermore, the persons whom need to vote like the working poor , the homeless, and elderly are not accommodated here as to voting in which to get a fair vote should be happening .
