Local Dems Neil Arbarbanell, Colman Stewart and Cathy Hart celebrate a good run, even after hearing the news that the Greedy Ole Party still controls Indian River County. Dr. Arbarbanell, as a Democrat, managed to pick up 35% of the vote against Mrs. Mayfield, who inherited the seat with a blessing from the G.O.P. After that impressive showing, we have a good feeling that the good Doctor will return again to make a "house call".
Why did John McCain lose? Could it be that the "Real America" (as Sarah Palin put it) is really just a bunch of old, tired, set in their way, intolerant, pasty people?
Sometimes staying the course is not such a good idea.
