Public Nuisance

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.
-Ronald Reagan

Running Men

I've been unable to find a full list so far, but the final count for gubernatorial candidates after today's filing deadline is "over 125". Of the major names, in are Arnold, Simon, McClintock, Ueberroth, Bustamante, and Huffington, A. Most notably out in the final days are Issa and Garamendi. Garamendi may have found a horse's head in his bed today, because only a few hours before he quit, it was a very different story:

Democratic Insurance Commissioner John Garamendi, who said he has been asked by some party leaders to drop out in favor of Democratic Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante, pledged to stay in the race.

"He's said it pretty emphatically -- he's not going to back out," said Gary Gartner, a spokesman for Garamendi.

The pundits seem to be calling this as a race in which Schwarzenegger will be the favorite. With the hard right conservatives going to other candidates and another prominent, and more qualified, moderate Republican in the race, I don't see it that way. The early call here: recall will pass and Bustamante will become the next Governor.

And, oh yes, Georgy is in. According to her blog, she was the ninth person to actually file completed paperwork in Santa Clara county. She has also matched Arianna's promise not to spend over $10 million on her campaign.
