I guess Katie "Some People Say" Couric wasn't working that night, and that's why this story about the California petition drive to reallocate the state's electoral votes by district ran on her Suck Up To Bush Evening News:
This is what happens when you have an ill-informed electorate. I've done canvassing where I couldn't even get a signature for a candidate's ballot petition because I couldn't convince the person that the signature wasn't a cmmitment to vote for that candidate. Yet here you have people throwing in a petition for a law that if enacted, would essentially put this country's executive branch into the hands of Republicans -- presumably all of them with George Bush's notion of absolute power -- in perpetuity. Do they even know what they're signing?
