I can confidently say who won the election being held tomorrow.
And the winner is.....


the corporations who control our public airwaves, and have subjected us to an endless wave of negative advertising that filled their coffers, and left the majority of the voting public ignorant. If this same media spent half of their "Citizens United" windfall education people on how economics and policy actually work, there would be no tea party. There would be no chance that the GOP would control more then a handful of far right areas dominated by gated communities.

1. Actually, Meg Whitman spending 150 million dollars was good...
for the California economy. It will be even better when she looses.

5. Well said.
The ignorant are so easily duped. Unfortunately, we all have to suffer the fallout.
