SF Nitwits Still Love Nancy

You really have to wonder about the mindset of people who vote overwhelmingly for the most unpopular politician in America.
Soon-to-be-dethroned House Speaker Nancy Pelosi may have been a favorite target of Republican candidates in the midterm elections Nov. 2 - by one count more than 400 of their ads featured her as the enemy - but voters in her famously liberal home turf of San Francisco still love her.

A look at election results in the city showed her with the highest support, percentagewise, of any candidate running for state or federal office. Pelosi, who is vying to become the House minority leader in the 112th Congress, claimed 79.97 percent support in her re-election bid.

That was a tad higher than incumbent U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer, who secured 79.85 percent of San Francisco's vote, according to the latest election results.

Jerry Brown, in his bid for governor, grabbed 78.71 percent of the vote. Support dropped for Mayor Gavin Newsom. He secured 75.41 percent of the San Francisco vote in his race for lieutenant governor.
The upside? We'll still have Pelosi, Dingy Harry and Obama to focus on come 2012.

H/T Jedi.
