With 25% reporting, Waxman is losing by 3% to an independent. We've had a couple independents in the Senate, but I don't remember the last time we ever had an independent in the house, much less an indy who scalped such a high-profile entrenched congressman.
I like it.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
