Oy, I'm going to be up all night awaiting to see of Strickland wins. He's such a super-nice guy.

I've never met him, but he exudes "nice" in his pictures and on video.
I certainly like his watchdog platform, much more so than the "suck more taxes out of every citizen" Chiang.

Looks like the Democrats will keep only the Treasurer's office. If Brown's out the GOP will have a deep state bench no thanks to Arnold.

Proposition 90 is hanging on. I thought it was a goner. If that stays up once its gets over 50%, I think it'll pass.

Amid Dems congressional victory, Pombo loses resources chairmanship

By Lisa Vorderbrueggen
CONTRA COSTA TIMES

Disenchanted voters handed Democrats the reins over the House of Representatives in mid-term elections Tuesday, which also counted as a victory for environmentalists eager to bounce Rep. Richard Pombo, R-Tracy, as chairman of a powerful committee.

It was still too early to say whether Pombo would lose his District 11 seat to Democratic challenger Jerry McNerney of Pleasanton but the incumbent will no longer sit as chairman of the House Resources Committee.

The majority party controls nearly every House operation, including chairmanships. If re-elected, Pombo will mostly likely end up as the minority party's ranking member of the House Agriculture Committee.

Either way, Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund President Rodger Schlickeisen calls Tuesday a win for the environment.

The national group teamed with the Sierra Club, League of Conservation Voters and Humane Society and has spent more than $1.5 million on anti-Pombo electioneering in the past year.

"Our number one goal was to remove Pombo as the chairman," said Schlickeisen, who led the group's first-ever foray into congressional campaigns. "We worked on 26 races but Pombo was our biggest target."

Pombo had successfully marshaled several bills through the House of Representatives that infuriated environmentalists, including a rewrite of the 1974 Endangered Species Act. The bill was already foundering the Senate, but after Tuesday's results, it has no chance of survival.

Meanwhile, East Bay incumbents Rep. George Miller, D-Martinez, and Rep. Ellen Tauscher, D-Alamo, were headed for easy victories to hold onto their House seats.

Miller was poised to extend a 31-year career in Congress. Early returns showed more than 80 percent of voters favored Miller over Libertarian challenger Camden McConnell in Disrict 7, which covers northern and west Contra Costa County, much of Solano County and a slice of Napa County.

Tauscher, 54, was headed for her sixth term in Congress with a nearly 2-1 lead over first-time Republican candidate Darcy Linn for the 10th District seat. The district stretches from Livermore across central and east Contra Costa and north through parts of Sacramento and Solano counties.

I didn't vote for him today. I just can't vote for someone who shows no loyalty to the party or its principles. As it turned out, he didn't need conservatives to win.

Brace yourself - the next two years the Democrats will push this country to the Left in the face of a politically wounded President. If he resists them, they'll impeach him.

Hot Dang!!!

My county voted for Mountjoy over Feinstein overwhelmingly. He beat her like a drum with a 10 percentage point lead!!!

Oh! Don't forget to compare the actual votes cast in favor of McClintock as opposed to those cast for the Governor, just for comparison fun!!!

Like I said, look at it this way: as long as you and I are alive, its free money. It never has to be repaid by us. I think its debt and I voted AGAINST all the bonds but this state's idiot voters feel otherwise.

These numbers are all going to tighten up. I think Tom is going to win. But I'm pretty sure Strickland who's only up by a couple of points and Prop 90 which is real close, are both going to lose.

Hope by tomorrow I'll awaken to good news.... that both major parties lost! (hehehe!)

Seriously, the only two things I gained from watching Diane Feinstein's ad were:
A. The boob she chose to breast-feed her granddaughter looked plastic.
B. The only thing of substance she said during the entire commercial was: "I'm Diane Feinstein, and I approve of this ad".

Who cares?

As the GOP gets slaughtered in DC, maybe some Freepers who keep calling him a RINO will start listening to him now.

What's to listen to? More Global Warming nonsense? $100 Billion in debt that he has pushed through? His new plans for Universal Healthcare? More taxes pushed through as "fee" increases? His opposition to Eminent Domain reform? Give me a break! California was given a choice for Governor between a liberal(R) or a liberal(D). Both tout liberal policies and are driving this state into economic disaster. Go listen to the speech. Some of us will continue to watch the results and hope some of the downticket Conservative candidates can get in office.
