The rights of farm animals outweigh the rights of some humans, at least that is the message that California is sending after the big historic election last night.  

I'm all for the "yay" that Obama won the presidency - this is something that needed to happen to restore our reputation with the rest of the world (something that I'm sure many people forgot about over the years is that the US is only part of the world, and not the whole world...) but I have much sadness in that my state - and I've only ever had residence in California - would choose to add to the constitution blatant discrimination against a single group of people.

One can only hope that the remaining precincts swing it the other way (now, at about 9:15 PM it's seventeen percent reporting 56/44 in favor of the recall.)

Jello Biafra (of the Punk Band the Dead Kennedy's) got two chances so far on this song about California governors. First with Jerry "Moonbeam" Brown (now Mayor of Oakland.) Then again, in the early nineties, when he produced the Disposable Heroes of Hip-Hopricy version about Pete (not the anchor man) Wilson. Here is a section from the latter version:

First a couple of jokes about California:
