    I'm not surprised.

    The overall Repub turnout in FL was WAY down too.

    Don't let this fool you for a second. Turnout among Republicans will be an all-time high in the general election. I've heard so many Virginians say they will vote for anyone but Obama, and most voted for him in 2008. I overhear it at the supermarket, post office, etc. They don't care who the Repubs pick, they have been brainwashed to hate Obama.

    This is why every lazy-ass democrat better get the fuck out there and vote. DO NOT BE FOOLED. Remember, McCain and Palin came close.

    McCain and Palin lost in an electoral landslide.

    But you're right that we cannot afford to be complacent.

    The desperate Repubs will use any slimy trick they can think of to try to win and there will be massive amounts of dirty Repub Super PAC $$$$$$$$$$$$$ poured into the race - so everyone who cares about preventing the Repubs from taking us back to the failed Bush/Repub economic policies that wrecked the economy and caused the Bush recession - needs to get their asses to the polls to vote on Nov. 6th.
