Yesterday wasn't about voters changing their minds, it was about voters not showing up.

I just looked it up. In California the average registered voter turnout was 43%. That is just sickening.

Could you be more specific? Are you talking about AZ or everywhere? What's a narcissistic progressive? What third party?

everywhere. anyone who was too lazy to vote. anyone who is dumb enough to think the parties are the same and didn't vote. anyone who didn't vote because Obama didn't make their entire world perfect in 18 months. any third party. all are worthless except to take votes from Democrats or Republicans (which I don't mind).

You think that most of the people who didn't vote would have voted democrat?

no, but i think that 10% more democrats would have changed the face of congress. i don't care about conservatives who don't vote.

I think it was more about voters expressing their pain and frustration with the speed of economic recovery. We've been going through the worst recession since the Great Depression. History indicates that a "housecleaning" was pretty much unavoidable.

And as Stephen Colbert saliently observed, a political party achieved a great victory last night on the basis of promising change. That's never come back to bite anyone in the ass before. ;c)

Gman is upset at the AZ returns. :(
Jan Brewer is a fucktard.
Best wishes Dave.
