Here in California, every single one of Schwarzenegger's power-grabbing ballot measures was defeated. He managed to unite teachers, nurses, unions, and public employees... AGAINST him.

My local polling place was the fire station a block from my home, in the big garage where the fire engines are parked. There were a bunch of firemen hanging out, doing a leisurely equipment check on the engines. While I was in line, a little old lady who had just cast her ballot called out, "I voted NO! No, no, NO!"

All the firemen clapped and cheered.

Alec Mento's *Penny Rants* books help you relive the horrors of the last 14 years of American politics, but with an improbable optimism and (per Kirkus Reviews) an "acerbic flair" and "a talent for distilling complex ideas into quickly digestible parts." And you can only get these books at Blunt Instruments; click the photo above (or type blunteye.com into your browser) to get them!
