GRANICK SLATE CARD
GENERAL ELECTION: NOVEMBER 7, hospital 2006

Friends, viagra sale Romans, Countrymen:

This mid-term general election could be one of the most important Ever for the Democratic Party. Bush’s poll ratings are extremely low. Voters are frustrated with the progress of the war in Iraq and the Administration’s refusal to admit that anything is wrong. The GOP is racked with the Foley teen page scandal. If the Democrats can’t make major gains in both the House and the Senate now, the party is truly, truly incompetent.

Of course, there’s nothing we can do to help, since we live in the liberal stronghold of the San Francisco Bay Area. Our predicable votes won’t be the ones that swing control of Congress to the Dems.

Instead, we can amuse ourselves with the deluge of Propositions and some interesting Board of Supervisor races over who can be the most liberal candidate imaginable.

To make it seem more fun, check out the California Voter Foundation’s “Proposition Song”. The ballot is way too long, indeed. So buckle your seat belts and hang on, because we’re in for a long and bumpy ride.
