Long before the "tea party" movement, Nevada lawmakers gave disgruntled and uninterested voters a way to tell politicians to buzz off. You don't like any of the choices? Vote for "none of these candidates."
This year, the turnout for "none" could be a decisive factor in whether Sen. Harry Reid returns to power as Democratic majority leader. The race between Reid and Republican Sharron Angle is so close, and the disdain for both candidates so high, that the victor will likely triumph by a razor-thin margin. That's where "none" comes into play.
