That the Leftists cared more about good writing than their political ideology.
I know, I was a fool. It was but a faint hope, but yet I hoped it.
Looking at the voting totals for the Hugo Awards, the Leftists burned them down rather than allow anyone else to win one who wasn't of the correct political persuasion. They used scorched earth tactics to make sure nobody outside of their politically approved group got an award.
So be it. The rules are set for 2016, where "No Award" may very well take every category.
