It's Election Day - do you know where your polling place is?
Today may be a comparatively dull day for Georgia voters (but don't tell that to local candidates Eric Wilson, Steve Brodie, and Kwanza Hall), but there are still important races being served up across the country.

In a matchup that could foretell Democratic fortunes in the 2006 Congressional elections, Democrat Tim Kaine is fighting Republican Jerry Kilgore for control of Virginia's governorship. Also at stake is the reputation of popular Democratic governor Mark Warner, who has campaigned heavily for Kaine and is eyeing a 2006 Senate race or possibly the 2008 Presidential race (Warner for President, you heard it here first).

Also on the menu is a vicious battle for governor of New Jersey, pitting Democratic Senator Jon Corzine against Republican Douglas Forrester. Both have poured on the negative ads (spending an enormous $70 million of their own money) and both have been the target of wild rumors. New Jersey is a blue state, but the previous Democratic governor was forced to resign over a homosexual (that word shouldn't be the clincher, but it is) extramarital affair, which might leave Forrester an opening.

And, finally, The Governator (that's "Govahnator") is in danger of having his slate of ballot initiatives terminated by California voters who are seeing Ah-Nold for the Republican assclown that he claimed not to be. Why John McCain bothered to campaign for this guy is beyond me...

McCain is the 57th most conservative Senator in the 107th Congress, the 88th most conservative Senator in the 108th Congress, and the 97th most conservative Senator in the 109th Congress.

Since he's on average the 80th most conversative Senator of the last 6 years or so, it's not surprising he would support Republicans.

McCain is not a moderate; don't forget that.

(note that McCain has a prety abysmal 13.66% progressive percentage).
