This is how we imagine politics in the U.S. should be. If this is not a manifestation of the American Dream, then I don’t know what is. Congratulations to Mr. Cao.
Sadly, it may have taken an election delayed by hurrican Gustav to make it happen as turnout was no doubt diminished. But happen it did. Mr. Cao was running against Rep. William Jefferson of “$90,000 dollars in his freezer” fame. The election was still pretty close.
In other news, I apologize for linking to the New York Times twice in the same post. I was just being lazy.
