I think we can safely assume that the treason and Sodomy capital of the nation is going to vote solidly Obama.

Most of the same people will also be there on Tuesday voting for him again.

Would it not be justice if Cindy Sheehan beat Pelosi?

Yes BUT the framers of the Constitution were ahead of their time and foresaw what loony fringe Cali will be, so they created the electoral college. They and their ACORN ilk can vote 5 times if they want...
omg..we’re gonna lose San Fran.
My guess is the only people overly excited for Obama live in urban lefty areas that McCain never had a chance to win.
"...over 21% of registered voters for the November 4 election have already casts their ballots....[sic] even if they didn't.
Let’s concentrate on AMERICAN regions, shall we? /s
This is the momentum for and against Prop 8. On a busy street corner here in my Conservative valley there were many demonstrators. On each corner of this 6 lane intersection there were around 20 people with ‘No on 8’ signs. I think it will be close for the Prop. I'm hoping and praying that the majority of Californians have some core values. Of course San Franciscans will vote overwhelmingly for 0bama and ‘No on 8’. Such a beautiful city to be so corrupted by decadence.
I don’t want to raise anyone’s hopes up, but even here in the heart of Mordor (Santa Clara County) I’m seeing more McCain/Palin signs than I ever saw Bush/Cheney signs. California is still probably in Lib hell, but more ‘R’ votes may come out of here this season than ever before. And ours walk and talk(in English)!

Our ‘Yes on 8’ bumperstickers were stolen from our cars.

This would make sense as most Californians didn’t even know about early voting until this year.
No surprise. I am always skeptical hearing that Republicans are stealing signs or defacing property. It's ALWAYS the Left loony fringe that creates these problems.
they have been encouraging dems to vote early to skew the polls; early voters are not new voters.
