Move over, Sad Keanu. Sad Rob Lowe is here.

Can Twitterers cheer him up while he’s down in the dumps about his California vote not counting?

    Ann Perkins! This is LITERALLY one of the saddest tweets I’ve seen.

      Speaking of Parks and Recreation, they have been carrying some heavy water this season for the Democratic Party, they even had a soda tax episode saying it was the right thing to do. I wonder what Rob Lowe thinks of that.

      • KateNE

        It’s been pretty annoying this season so far and I really used to love the show. I’m not sure how much longer I’m going to watch it.

        • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

          I have a feeling it will get better after the election as long as they don’t totally alienate the conservative audience. Ron Swanson is one of my favorite characters ever.

      • http://thejamesongirl.com/ Anneka Jameson

        Thanks for the comment. I’ve been avoiding the show this season because i was afraid of the full on promotion of a liberal agenda.

        • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

          yeah, same here, the soda tax episode really enraged me. The last episode was about sex education complete with cartoonish Christian characters who promoted “abstinence only” sex ed. Oh and the first episode even guest starred Barbara Boxer and Olympia Snow! If it doesn’t get better then I am about ready to give it up.

    It is sad. As a Californian, I can vouch this is how we feel – our votes do not matter since most of the time, the election is already decided while our polls are still open for a few hours, the media broadcasts the results before many here go to the polls. So, many don’t even bother going. I wish we could have a total media blackout on election day. Plus, the state being such a Liberal stronghold…it is discouraging. My vote won’t matter either, but I’m doing it anyway – to not vote would be like spitting on the graves of every American who gave their lives for my right to vote.

    • Stephanie T

      Agreed, BUT I’m proudly casting my vote for Romney/Ryan anyway. Because it’s the right thing to do.

      • Michelle

        Of course! Always vote, no matter what…just making the point that here in CA it often does feel like our votes do not matter and that’s not a good feeling so I understand what Rob Lowe conveyed. I would never not vote – too many Americans gave their lives for me to cast that vote, thus I always will. Even if it doesn’t count, I do it for them.

        • Stephanie T

          You are so right, Michelle!

      • Unemployed and Loving It

        Good for you. I’m another Californian for Romney/Ryan. If enough of us voted, maybe it would matter. Sure would change the world if California voted Republican, even if just once. This election matters far more than most, so perhaps enough will…

    • Stephanie T

      Agreed, BUT I’m proudly casting my vote for Romney/Ryan anyway. Because it’s the right thing to do.

    • Ian Andrews

      For a democrat to win, the election is not won before California closes, cause they need California. But Republicans pretty much cannot win California.

      I live in Cook County, IL. So I know exactly how you feel.

        I am a farmer and live in Southern Illinois, so basically we pay for Chicago

        • Michelle

          Ben – in the same boat here, I live in a suburb of L.A. that pretty much carries the financial weight for Los Angeles with our property taxes – without the area in which I live adding to LA’s income, LA would have gone belly up long ago. But we’re like the unwanted stepchild – the more populous, lower income, lower property value areas of LA are Liberal and they win elections on volume of vote, but my surrounding area pays the bills. Ain’t that a kicker?

          • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

            Exactly, if my family had not farmed here over 100 years I probably would go somewhere else because our governors are Chicago thugs and they have drained our state economy. We are one of the poorest states in the nation. Basically Obama has taken Chicago to Washington, D.C.

    • Lula6469

      I live in California too. I know my vote will not count but I will do it anyway. Go Romney!

      • Guest

        The sad part is not only do we have a “democrat” in the white house, we also have one as governor. We’re in a double-whammy here in CA…

        • Michelle

          drcidh – Triple Whammy – Democrat as Mayor of Los Angeles. I dislike them all on every level.

          • Guest

            Yup Michelle…you are right. I forgot about Mr. V…it took months of therapy, but I did (lol).

          • Michelle

            May I please have a referral to your therapist? I’d like to forget about him, too.

      Michelle, don’t you worry about a thing! I live in Texas and we are going with Romney, so I’ll help yours and Rob’s vote count. :)

      • Michelle

        Thank you Robin! I know that I and nearly ALL of my friends here in CA (in a suburb of LA) are voting for Romney and all around where I live there are Romney signs in yards, stickers on cars…so even if my state as a whole goes to Obama, it’s a damn good feeling to know I’m surrounded by friends and neighbors who are for Romney.

    It would matter if CA got some smarts and voted Romney, but alas we even reelected Geriatric Brown

    So… why don’t you change the rules so that it’s not winner-take-all? That’s the way it should be everywhere.
    Then your vote would come closer to making a difference.

  • radjahshelduck

    That’s the way the electoral college system works, Mr. Lowe. I live in Atlanta, sometimes called the L.A. of the South, and my vote here doesn’t really matter either. McCain won Georgia by 204 K votes in ’08; Romney will win by even more. Also like what Lowe describes in L.A., both candidates have been in town recently to raise money–cash in the South tends to gravitate towards Peachtree Street.

    See how much difference your vote would make in Beijing.

  • M & M’s BFF

    I have 2 friends in CA; one in Upland and the other in Poway, San Diego; they are red voters!!!

    • milos81

      Hey, I live in Upland, as does my brother – both GOP voters. I think there’s likely to be more of us around here (I even see a woman with a Romney sticker on her car in my apartment complex), because of our proximity to the Claremont colleges, where there are more than a few conservatives.

      Small world, though. Upland’s a tiny place.

      • M & M’s BFF

        My friend lives behind the freeway. lol

      I am in Orange County. I feel like I am held hostage by the swing states:(

        Hi neighbor!

    • bluewaternavy

      I have a bunch of former shipmates in Poway–all Red staters!

  • SlimWich

    Feel the same here in Connecticut. Romney will get my vote, but it won’t make a difference here.

    Damn, I’m surrounded by morons!!

    • Colleen Kelly

      Feeling the same in PA. Went to get the mail this morning and was greeted by multiple Obama signs across the street. I felt visually violated and angered that this many people could be so stupid to make the same mistake again. It’s too be expected around here, but I still hate knowing that all of PA’s electoral votes could be going to Barry. Hopefully that Susquehanna poll is right about Romney being ahead. Would I love to see a swing state go to Romney so early on during the election coverage.

      • fuskiegirl21

        I never understood this either in a State where all the union, manufacturing and Steele jobs have disappeared. Why are these voters still democratic? I just don’t get Pennsylvania.

        • Stephanie Warren

          Neither do I and I LIVE here!

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/I7E6CPG5QPZEFCRD6ZRWMFXZOM Christopher Chambers

        PA is really pretty close. You never know what will happen! Keep working on it and get conservatives to the polls on Nov. 6! (OH is close too!)

        • Colleen Kelly

          You are so right about that. Maybe the coal areas and everyone else not Philly will help sway the count. Already signed up to volunteer leading up to the election. Signed up help put on the bug day too. Praying for PA and OH to keep it close and steal a win for Romney!

  • Sam

    I know it won’t happen, but I think it would be incredible if the same people, I’m assuming mostly Orange County and San Diego residents, who came out to vote for Prop 8 came to vote for Romney. I wonder if that would be enough. There are powerful conservative bases there in CA.

    • nc

      Don’t worry, as an OC resident, I can’t imagine not voting. As a matter of fact, I just returned from helping my 2 90-year old cousins fill out their absentee ballots for Romney.

  • Marcy Cook

    I feel your pain Rob….I live in New York…my vote doesn’t matter either but that won’t stop me from voting for Romney/Ryan anyway.

  • YeahWeWill

    Speaking of Cali: both Nobama and Romney went to Newport Beach for fundraising. NB sent both campaigns a bill for police and city services. Guess who paid promptly and who blew it off!!! Yeppers; the party who fails to pay their taxes and increased the debt!

  • stuckinIL4now

    C’mon, cheer up Robby–you just never know. It’s good that you voted cuz your vote counts no matter what. It’s your responsibility as a US citizen, and you just never know. If everyone else decided not to vote and you were the only one who voted, then who would win?

    CA is out there in the Pacific time zone where @95 electoral votes will be waiting to be allocated as we go across the country counting votes. By the time CA’s votes get counted, we could be down to the wire to determining a new president or maybe adding to a landslide. What if you didn’t vote and Romney needed just one more vote to claim CA’s 55 electorals and he needed exactly 55 electorals to put him over the 270 top?

    I live in IL and right now IL is surrounded by red or red-leaning or just not solid Obamuh states and I’m thinking that the red could be seeping in already, from all sides, waiting to strike at early voting which starts in a week, and poised to explode into the ballot boxes on Nov 6. I’ll be at the polls on Nov 6 and I’m voting with the belief that anything is possible.

  • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

    Same thing here in Mass., the ONLY state that went for McGovern in ’72. At least there’s a real fight with Scott Brown.

  • CA Oathkeeper

    Agree with Rob and Michelle A.
    CA is just a waste of time. I’m leaving here as soon as I grad college. It can teeter over into the fiscal abyss that it’s dug for itself, without my taxes and earnings going over with it.

  • http://twitter.com/ObamaLies2Much Obama Lies

    I have a similar feeling living in the NON-Vegas part of Nevada. Vegas kept Reid in power, and will most likely make this a blue state again this year for Dear Leader.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_32KB4BKYYDJW3HMFBV47T7IPYU pragmatic

    I’m in washington. seattle may dominate state politics (the rest of the state is conservative. can we secede?), but I’m out there anyway. we’re working with a romney superpac aimed at turning washington red.

  • V the K

    I live in Maryland; my vote matter less then Rob Lowe’s.

    You wanna know why only 50% of eligible voters vote? Because in most parts of the country, it’s a waste of time.

    • ceyanne

      Yep, I’m in the land of Owe’Malley, as well. And still voting R&R. :o)

  • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

    Remember that right now conservatives are motivated and disillusioned liberals may not even show up to polls. We have an advantage and I have a feeling there may even be a blue state or two that turns red this election.

  • Beth Larsen

    Someone made the point recently that winning the popular vote by a comfortable margin is important, too. We don’t want a repeat of 2000. If Obama were to win the popular vote and Romney the electoral, we’ll probably see some lawsuits and it will take that much longer to unite our fractured country. So, proudly vote for Romney!! I live in Utah, and my vote does not really matter (in the electoral sense) either, but I still cannot wait!!! ROMNEY/RYAN 2012

  • Sheerie Knoll

    I know that California is a “blue” state. But every once in a while she does go red. Reagan did take California. I’m hoping this time Romney will too.
    Before anyone starts bashing me, I know it is a pipe dream, but I can still hope. 😉

    Romney/Ryan 2012!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I’ve sent in my absentee ballot

    • Al Sharptons Hair

      I’ve actually seen many Romney stickers and signs in Ventura County.

  • rbtpowell

    If he wants to see a measurable impact, he should consider working to remove the dimwits currently running CA…..or move to Prescott.

  • Jambu Shambu

    I never get this line of thinking. Your vote counts as much in CA as it does in Alabama or any other deep red or deep blue state. Saying I voted for the losing side in my state, therefore my vote doesn’t count means that 48% or 49%of people who vote in Ohio will also have their votes “not matter” since they voted for the losing side

    Makes as much sense as saying your vote doesn’t count in CA.

    Just go vote.
