Random commentary and senseless acts of blogging.
The first Republican president once said, "While the people retain their virtue and their vigilance, no administration by any extreme of wickedness or folly can seriously injure the government in the short space of four years." If Mr. Lincoln could see what's happened in these last three-and-a-half years, he might hedge a little on that statement.

The Davis/Simon race is a virtual tie right now, and the newscasters are calling it a potential upset. Don't believe it. With 40% of statewide votes in, many rural pro-Republican counties such as Fresno, Kern, Kings, Amador, and others have reported 70 to 100% of their precincts. Strong Democratic counties San Francisco and Alameda are running slightly below 40%. Most importantly, only 7% of Los Angeles has been counted, meaning over 1/3 of the uncounted vote is coming from there. Simon would need a huge lead at this point to stand a chance; in fact he's trailing slightly. This is going to end up a runaway. Get your latest results here.
