Early signs of gloom for Orly Taitz in California
Despite plenty of hype over the past 24 hours, early California returns have birther movement activist Orly Taitz losing badly in the GOP primary for California Secretary of State. Votes are being counted quickly in voter-rich Los Angeles and San Diego County, where she's losing by a 3-1 margin -- just about the margin in the rest of the state.
Alvin Greene's bizarre upset win in South Carolina was proof that under-funded candidates can win races that the electorate isn't paying much attention to. Damon Dunn, a black Republican and first-time candidate who's drubbing Taitz, didn't spend much more money than her. But he spent enough.
