Electoral Nuttiness

“I know that among some in my own party, what I’m discussing would be considered
treasonous, but I’m not going to cheerlead us down the primrose path when I know
we’re being led in the wrong direction.” – South Charleston Mayor Richie Robb

Richie Robb may become only the ninth elector
to not vote for the popular winner in his state
. If this year’s election is
as tight as 2000 (It may, in fact, be tighter.), that one vote could make a big
difference. (Thanks, Electoral
