Fear, despair, and a deep sense of foreboding engulfed the Democratic Party Tuesday as early results seem to indicate that even the illegal alien vote couldn't help Democrat Francine Busby defeat Republican Brian Bilbray in California's 50th District. The race was to replace convicted Congressman Duke Cunningham.
With 25% of precincts reporting, Bilbray leads by 50% to 44%.
Of course, it was Busby who uttered the now-infamous "you don't need papers to vote" while speaking to 50 or so people, many of whom were Spanish speakers. While she and her helpers have since issued various tortured explanations, the intent of her remarks is crystal clear to anyone who's intellectually honest.
UPDATE: It's official! The pet/illegal alien/dead people/space alien vote failed Francine Busby. And, here's a video of her infamous statement. She actually says "you don't need papers for voting". Unfortunately, the video doesn't have the question that was asked, but if it wasn't before, it's even more clear now what she was getting at.
