Why? Because their man lost by a half a vote less than otherwise?

Lots more likely those ghosts were high-fiving each other about almost half the voters and a solid majority of the working class not even bothering, rather than resigning themselves to voting in a one-party system with two effectively indistinguishable candidates.

Still I can't help feeling, that sullen silent half has got to make those creeps worry some. How can they trust in the continued cooperation of so big a mass of guys who won't say a word?

So who's running as a third party in California, that you all can vote for as a protest vote? And how the Hell did a guy like Davis ever make it on to the California ballot as a Democrat? I mean, it's not as though we in Florida can talk so superior about it; one time I had to vote Republican for a Circuit Judge or something like that, because the Democrat candidate was, no kidding, a graduate of the KKK. But your clown Davis is notorious even as far away as here.
