I am in denial today. It was a horrendous election for those of my political orientation.
So many losses. So much head scratching.
Why do so many people vote against their own best interests? Our economy has always been strongest when labor was strong and weakest when corporatists ruled.
Hey–my side lost. Sucks to be me.
My Cousin Melissa lost last night in a nail biter. The top two were elected to Irvine’s city council..
Four tenths of one percent. Are you kidding me?
Melissa and her family contorted their lives around this campaign. And now, in an instant, poof.
There was nothing more she could do. It’s a shame. Her ideas on local issues were sound. She would have gotten my vote even if we weren’t related.
Local campaigns get dirty. People lied in campaign literature. Mud was flung. Despicable.
Since it worked it will surely be back next time.
A future blog entry on that.
