Buh, Bye! First Beers, Then Angle, Now TASC!

It is a good year for the reality based community. First education and civil services haters (hey, you know you need to raise taxes to have a functioning system, guys!) Bob Beers and Sharron Angle lost their respective primaries. Now, the catastrophic TASC initiative has been barred from the ballot in November by the Nevada Supreme Court. The Nevada Appeal:
The Tax and Spending Control initiative has been pulled off the November ballot.

In a 30-page opinion issued Friday afternoon, the Supreme Court ruled unanimously that TASC's supporters clearly violated the state constitution and statutes by circulating a different version of the proposed amendment than they filed with the Secretary of State.

They ruled the mandatory requirements of the Nevada Constitution must be strictly adhered to in deciding whether an initiative can be put on the ballot and that the TASC committee failed to do so.
Now, let's make this year even better and help elect some Democrats!
