The 43rd district in Seattle is so solidly Democratic (and also kinda gay) that the GOP usually doesn't run a "real" candidate, because it's a waste of time. I could run as an unknown Democrat in this district against John McCain, and I would probably win. So the "real" election for this district is the Democratic primary, because whoever wins that wins the seat.
So now that we have our Democratic Candidate (and eventual winner), people are finally looking at the Republican candidate. Who is a college student. With a Facebook* page.
10 points if you don't see where this is going.

As David Schmader said, "Personally, I can't imagine backing any candidate I haven't seen vomiting in a sombrero."
*Facebook is like Myspace, but only for students.
