another Bay Area native here...yep. That about covers it. I have lived in both Silicon Valley and San Francisco and the amount of disconnect is really astounding. Like minded people need to band together to support each other, even if it's just emotionally, but even then...it's money that talks in the political system. A guy like John Dennis (who ran to replace NaPo in the last two congressional races) could have had a fighting chance with his anti-war, personal freedom platform, but the GOP refused to even look at him.
I'm not sure there's any way our beautiful state can unscrew itself from this predicament...
