    Since only white people are racists, it is amazing that he won despite people thinking he's African-American. That had to cost him a lot of votes, but he won anyway.

    This is absolutely hilarious. There's really nothing else to say about it. What would really be awesome is if the guy actually did a great job and won reelection.

    Why? Must he resign or something?

    I'm not sure partisan politics even comes into play that much for a freaking community college board position. I would have looked at that ballot and thought "I don't even know what this position is, much less have a clue who these people are."

    Thats a really good point. In our local elections there are no party affiliations. What was that position again? The college board of regents? And they are dem or GOP candidates?

    Sadly, I think you have a point there. Very, very few people actually attend their party caucuses, for example. Fewer still attend their county conventions, and yet fewer their state conventions - all activities crucial to determining who will represent them.

    Then ask people the question, "who is on your city council?" Or, "who is your mayor?" Or, who are your county, or even state representatives and you begin to realize just how uninvolved most people truly are in the political process, how it really boils down to an incredibly shallow set of information from which most people agree to decide who will represent them. Heck, watch Leno's "jaywalking" where he asks people who the Vice President is, or even the President, and you see the magnitude of the problem.
    Who chimes "No Absolutes!" chimes absolutely.
