It is probably the most liberal (proportionally) city in the entire country. Yes, it is my hometown of Berkeley, California. The city that I think people go to in order to find an excuse to be politically active. There’s not a day go by that I don’t see a protest or at least one person holding up a sign that sums up his or her belief. But the city that I love has found another reason to be in the news: “Berkeley plans to give voters a say on a measure calling for the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.”
Another waste of time, and another waste of minutes of talking about it. The only reason that I bring this up is that the Yahoo! news article that I read has an interesting statistic about the number of people who voted for George W. Bush in the 2004 presidential election. It turns out that I was one of 4,010 people who voted for G.W. while 54,409 other Berkeley residents voted for the other guy. Funny.
