I am quite pleased today.

It all started yesterday, when I went to vote. There was a girl working as a poll volunteer who was probably just 16 years old. I was excited to see such a young person taking part in the democratic process. However, that is not what makes me happy.

Governor Schwarzenegger failed miserably. When he failed to convince the state legislature to do anything he wanted, he threatened to end-around them by having a special election. It was a special election no one in the state wanted because of the cost, and it turns out they were right. This was the costliest state election ever. But that is not what makes me happy either.

What makes me happy is the fact that the state gave a big "Fuck You" to the Governator, and every single one of his proposed propositions failed. As a matter of fact, every single measure on the ballot failed. This was the first time every measure turned out the way I had voted. :)

That makes me happy.

That makes me happy and I don't even live there.

Cheers to that. I went to bed early last night, at which time it looked like a few of them would pass. I was most upset last night when the polls were first coming in about prop 73...I was relieved when I woke up to see that nothing passed. F Arnold. He should go back to making crappy movies and leave our state alone.

This is certainly what arnold gets for being elected.

This just goes to show. No governor of California will ever be president again. Running California these days is a high profile failure no matter what.

Good bye arnold. Good bye gray. good bye pete.
