TIME FOR A NEW GOVERNOR?….The whole Uday/Qusay story was practically ignored by the LA Times today, overshadowed by a banner headline announcing that the recall campaign against Gray Davis has officially qualified for the ballot. It looks like we’ll have an election sometime around the end of September.
Which means I now have to come to grips with what to do. On the one hand, I’m inclined to vote against the recall because it’s a lousy piece of partisan hackery and I really don’t want people to get the idea that they can mount a recall campaign anytime a governor has low approval ratings.
On the other hand, it’s a done deal now and Davis is a dork, so why not go ahead and kick him out and vote for whoever I think is best?
Of course, it’s possible that Republicans will make it easy for me by not running anyone worth voting for. Say, Darrell Issa, just to pick a name out of a hat.
Too bad it looks like Dick Riordan won’t run. I would have voted for him in the general election, and he probably would have won. But Davis was way too crafty to let me have that choice. Maybe Arnold, then? I wonder how T3 is doing?
