1. I am totally boycotting California
Not a dime to any company with headquarters in CA, no travel to CA, no movies, NOTHING, so long as a Nazi is the governor.

9. Sorry, but that is just stupid...
How about we just start boycotting all states that elect Republican governors? How bout' New York? Maryland? Massachusetts?

Come on, I know people are upset, but threatening boycotts of California is just ridiculous.

16. Add the United States to that list as well.
If they are going to call for a stupid half wit boycott of CA, then they may as well boycott their whole damn country, until the theif is out of the stollen White House.

24. Although I share your anger...
I don't think a boycott of CA would make much sense, simply because so many corporations are based there. It seems like it would be almost impossible.

That said, I don't really give a shit about the state of CA, whether the people of that state have jobs, etc. I think they're idiots, and honestly couldn't care less if all their tech jobs are outsourced overseas.

12. Well, let's see...
California is supposedly a Democratic stronghold. It's a BLUE state. And 10 million Californians just elected a total fucking steroid-pumped idiot gangbanger to be their governor, after (a) he took big bucks from the corporate donors after swearing not to; (b) he freely admits to abusing half the population (women); etc. etc. ad nauseum. What does that SAY about the state?

More importantly, what does it say about the Democratic Party in California? Bustamante ran a piss poor campaign while Arnold was all over the place. Davis pissed off half the state with that ridiculous illegal alien driver's license thing. The whole state is a total clusterfuck!

And people say the South is stupid! I realize it wasn't the California DUers, but SOMEBODY FUCKED UP BIG-TIME HERE!! Where were the Demcrats???? Where the fuck were the Democrats and more importantly, how many of them voted for Gov. Gangbang???

17. Yeah - but look at who the rest of us "selected" for President
or rather enough people voted for the turkey to let him steal the election...

The rest of us are just as stooopid as Californians.

You people bashing California need to chill.

California has it's idiots, sure. So does *your* state. I spent half my week arguing with various coworkers about just why Schwarzeneggar would be bad. "Haven't we established in the last 2 years that it's a bad idea to elect mental midgets to high political offices?", I'd ask.

Oh, pbbt. I'm focussing on the Recall Arnold campaign.

20. As a leftist who lives in the south (and I'm not the only one), I should..
be enjoying a bitter laugh at the expense of some Californians on this board who time after time condemn all of the people of an area due to its elected officials, but I am not. I feel for you.

22. Try this on for size
With McClintock and Ah-nold's numbers rolled together, Cali went 60% Republican tonight.
