Freak Show Follies, Chapter 1

Ken Masugi rightly forecasts that the California recall "jungle" ballot could turn into a freak show that hands victory to Davis. This morning’s paper brings the first indication this prospect: Michael Huffington is thinking of joining the race.

He would be a terrible candidate, the more so now that he is divorced from the brains of his earlier political career, Arianna. Of course, some people are urging Arianna to make the race herself, and since she kept her married family name, we could have a ballot with TWO Huffingtons on it. Maybe that’s why he’s talking about making the race--to try to keep her out, or to split the Huffington vote--a la Palm Beach County--if she does.

Stay tuned; the weirdness is just beginning.
