An election night memory.

Shortly after Arnold Schwarzenegger was elected Governor of California, Conan O'Brien did a bit where a Clutch Cargo mock up of the Governor discussed his victory. There had been talk about a connection to Nazis, and there had been talk about sexual harassment. The simulated Schwarzenegger commented on the election, "the people of California have spoken. And they have said a resounding yes to the groping and a resounding yes to Hitler!"

That bit is what I kept thinking about when I saw a state go to President Bush. They said yes to the torture and yes to the groping and yes to the scare tactics and yes to the flip-flopping and yes to the dodging.

Voting for Bush tells the world, "yes, we wanted that to happen."
