I rather liked Stewart's piece on it, too, Avery.
On a more serious note, I imagine there's a bit of misconception with what he said (which was hilarious if only a little disturbing [we should be immune to it by now, don't you think?]) and what the Lieutenant Governor intended to say. Or, or the other hand, he could just be a moron. Wouldn't be a big surprise.
I wonder if this is a result of voting with little to no information on the candidates (other than the big 'R' or 'D' behind their names), or just a general dearth of decent candidates?
