And they’re off

Can I just say now how glad I will be to never hear the words California recall election again? I have no guess who will win, and frankly I’m finding it hard to care. Unfortunately, I suspect the only outcome that will guarantee no more recall efforts is for Gray Davis to survive, and I don’t know how likely that is. Between this and the neverending redistricting fiasco, it’s pretty easy to see why so many people hate politics.

(And is it just me, or is anyone else disappointed that Larry Flynt was a total nonentity in the campaign? I mean, the least he could have done was try to blackmail someone. He’s losing his edge.)

    We’ll be hearing “California Recall Election” again, for better or worse, unless Davis survives.

    On a related note, Jimmy Breslin writes in today’s Newsday about “adult film star” Mary Carey and her platform. It makes for a refreshing alternative to the media circus this has become.

    As for Larry Flynt, he probably stayed on the outside because this has become too obscene for even him. 😉

    Haha, ever the optimist. If either of the ballots are anything approaching ‘close,’ the legal wrangling is gonna make Florida look like a warmup…
