Chomskyification Suffers a Minor Setback: Voters.From the NY Times:

But a funny thing happened on the way to the caucuses. New people turned out, as Dr. Dean had hoped, according to an entrance poll that showed half the caucusgoers had not taken part in one before. But, the poll found, most chose Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts instead.

"All the phone-calling we did, we'd have people who'd say, `I'm a Dean supporter, I'm a Dean supporter.' " said Kelly Chambers, Dr. Dean's captain in Precinct No. 83. "But when it came to caucus night, we only had 11 people show up for Dean. It just seems like all my hard work's been for nothing."

You know, if I were still a Democrat, I might actually be proud to be one today.
