This is not a misprint. It's up on the Alameda County Registrar of Voters site as of 7 AM this morning. Wow. Look, I know and you know this didn't happen, but someone at Alameda County Registrar of Voters really didn't want Arnold Schwarzenegger to win.

I wasn't one of them. I voted for him.

Why would a stanch Democrat like me vote for Arnold Schwarzenegger for the second time? Because the California Democratic Party is in the 20th Century when it comes to an understanding of why candidates are and are not compelling to voters and seems to think it has a lock on every election in the state.

We've got to get with it as a party. We've got to market our candidates better than we do. There's no excuse for what the party does in an age of YouTube and Blip.tv.

(BTW, the trick's on ya!)
