RECALL ROUNDUP….It is depressing being a Californian these days. I now have to face up to the prospect of an election that includes an incumbent who makes jokes about immigrants who talk funny; a candidate who thinks the state should regulate gasoline prices; a lunatic right wing anti-tax jihadist; a movie star whose big plan is to “audit the books”; and an eccentric newspaper columnist cum TV comedian.

The 90% of you who don’t live here can go ahead and laugh. Don’t worry, I can take it. But while it’s bad enough to have two candidates and not like either one of them, how is it possible that we have 135 and there still isn’t anyone worth voting for?

Maybe I’ll end up voting for Peter Ueberroth after all. Everyone likes the Olympics, right?
