Harry Reid is not a popular guy these days. The economy is really bad. People aren’t spending money to come and blow in Vegas (isn’t that funny; a town that relies on people sacrificing their livelihoods for its livelihood). Nevadans are not happy with Reid. He is tied with quite possibly the most crazy candidate ever in Sharron Angle. Under any other circumstances, Nevadans would parade this tart around at Circus, Circus. She would be at the Nevada Zoo (if they have one). But no, Sharron Angle is being seriiously considered for the Senate despite her horribly right wing views on abortion and her admonition for armed insurrection if she loses (among other equally offensive things). This just illustrates how much Nevadans are irritated with Reid. I think they would elect a prostitute from the Mustang Ranch before they re-elected Reid. Perhaps they will (Okay, that was tasteless).
But Nevada is an interesting state. They still caucus. And they have ‘None of the above’ on their ballots. Nevadans can literally vote both Reid and Angle out of the election. It’s doubtful that would happen. But what if it did? What if ‘None of the above’ won? Apparently the Governor gets to decide who to send to the Senate at that point. Nevada’s Governor is Jim Gibbons; himself embroiled in a couple of scandals involving battery and infidelity. He’s also a Republican so we can kind of presume which way that would go.
But it would be interesting if ‘None of the above’ were elected. How would ‘None of the above’ vote? I’m only guessing but I suspect ‘None of the above’ would caucus with the ‘Party of No’.
We do indeed live in interesting times.
