Recall Update

RECALL UDPATE….133? 155? 158? The LA Times reports today that the number of candidates appears to be nearing 200. Stay tuned for official results!

Elsewhere, the Times reports that Schwarzenegger invited Time and Newsweek to photograph him, but “refused to talk to their reporters.” Apparently it didn’t do him any harm since both magazines splashed him all over their covers this week. I know I shouldn’t be surprised at this, but I would have thought that both magazines had (barely) enough integrity left to refuse to run a cover story on a politician unless he agreed to talk to them. I guess not.

You can run, Arnold, but you can’t hide. You’re going to have to start answering questions one of these days.
