Random commentary and senseless acts of blogging.
The first Republican president once said, "While the people retain their virtue and their vigilance, no administration by any extreme of wickedness or folly can seriously injure the government in the short space of four years." If Mr. Lincoln could see what's happened in these last three-and-a-half years, he might hedge a little on that statement.

The past week has been nearly perfect for Arnold Scwarzenegger. He has completely dominated all coverage of the race, and done so while ducking any discussion of issues or explanation of what he plans to do if elected. The candidate most dangerous to him, Peter Ueberroth, has been so invisible in the media he might as well have been kidnapped. For all practical purposes, none of his opponents have started campaigning yet.
And with all that, the latest poll shows that he is now narrowly trailing Cruz Bustamante. Disregard what all the media talking heads have been telling you over the past week - they're ignorant as usual. The favorite in this race, particularly with the Republican vote split, is Bustamante.
