Gallagher for Governor

I swear we are living in The Onion for real now.

There are going to be nearly 400 people on the ballot for Governor in California, listed in random order. And whoever gets the most votes wins. So like someone could theoretically get 0.3% of the vote and be the next governor of California.

This is absolute madness.

I hope Gallagher wins. The system deserves it.
