Arriving home from the hospital after being treated for a heart attack, 84-year-old Carol Barnes inched up the steps into her Sunset District home and headed straight for her absentee ballot.
"She said, 'That ... Bush, I can't allow him to be president again,' " said her son, Bo Barnes. " 'I want to vote for Kerry to make the world safe.' "
Too exhausted to do more than cast votes for president and two propositions, the widow of an Army major signed the ballot and told her son they'd complete the rest later. Three days later, on Oct. 17, Carol Barnes died.
Within an hour of his mother's death, Bo Barnes mailed her absentee ballot, fulfilling her dying request.
Such soul-deep loathing of George W. Bush is common in the Bay Area,

Talk about hallucinating. Someone give that chump a drug test.
makes it easy to just cut it out and let it go out to sea.
I am headed on a trip to SF November 10. Boy, do I want to head in there gloating . . .
What is the problem with San Francisco? Why are they so mentally disturbed in your neck of the woods?
SF is a major leftist bastion.
I wish I knew, friend. I have it a bit better down here on the Peninsula, but not much.
Get out!! We did, due to the computer industry collapse. My entire family is still there and I miss my parents horribly, but I LOVE Georgia!! : )
"Three days later, on Oct. 17, Carol Barnes died."
After years of heavy drug abuse.
Well, guess what. I had a class IV brain tumor removed in August, and I cast my absentee ballot for Bush.
Works both ways.
"Welcome to my world."
How can you stand it? I actually think of places like S.F. as foreign countries.
I live in the Seattle area. We truly have some crazies here, but San Francisco still claims the title of most psychotic city in America.
Man, the Dems will make up all kinds of great stories to justify casting ballots for dead people, won't they?
Then that loathing is actually for you and me - good average Americans. It's a loathing that would be more than mutual but for our Christian patience and restraint.
And personally, I am no longer a patient man with the likes of the Bay Area.... "Slow to anger" doesn't mean much when we are provoked for 30+ years.
She was not a citizen (ie. she was dead) on the date of the election, therefore her vote must be disregarded.
welcome to my world of living in the Bay Area. However interesting event yesterday. A nice looking man in a suit and cowboy hat came to my door yesterday he was Africian American (excuse my spelling) I normally dont answer the door but I thought it was the post man. He introduced himself and said he is working for the Republican Party???Stunned I opened my screen door and came out to the front he handed me a Republican Party door banner of dont forget to vote. The only word out of my mouth was your a Republican I am shocked. Not shocked because of why you might think I was shocked another Republican in my Liberal bay area. He told me I know there isn't many of us here. Than he started talking about his family in Ohio and trying to really talk to them about G.W.
So I felt a sense of hope. However the only reason why the dems win is because of the Liberal Bay Area if you ever look at a map of CA and the Red and Blue areas a large amount of Red shows up it is just in LA and The bay area we have a higher number of people
not fair but that is the way it works
Daed democrats voting early this election
It would seem to me that, at least by 'Rat standards, this is more than sufficient reason for Bush to send an army of lawyers into California and contest the election if need be. I'm not certain, but I thought a person needed to be ALIVE on election day in order to have their vote counted.
Isn't it amazing that a significant percentage of this country does not support our President. It must be the water.
