You Won't Be Elected Governor, Charlie Brown

Vote2_1Vote today, please, if you have not done so already. To inspire you, we offer an election day anecdote.

At New West Notes, the intrepid Bill Bradley has already identified this year's winner of the "Saddest Spot in California" Award:

NO BALLOON DROP. Trailing California Democratic gubernatorial candidate Phil Angelides canceled the balloon drop last week for his victory party [tonight] at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Sacramento.  Angelides will be joined at his election night party by Lieutenant Governor Cruz Bustamante, the party's trailing candidate for state insurance commissioner.  Bustamante, the Democrats' replacement nominee for governor in the 2003 California recall campaign, was buried in a landslide that year by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

I'm not sure which makes me feel sorrier for poor sad sack Phil Angelides: no balloons or the prospect of an evening with Cruz Bustamante.  As for Bill Bradley, he announces he'll be providing video coverage of the Schwarzenegger party in Beverly Hills.

Truer words were ne'er spoken.
