No one attended the anti-GMO labeling party at the Westin Hotel, and no one (no member of the public) celebrated, cheered, clapped at the announcement of I-522's defeat. At around 9 pm, a big paycheck coldly walked into the conference room and made a few stern statements to empty seats about how the public (the people) had spoken, stepped down from the stage, said a few more stern words to a couple of cameras, and left with two other big paychecks. This was the most bizarre political event/victory I have ever seen. And I thought I had seen everything.
