California’s Governor Race: Update

I guess I haven’t been watching enough T.V., but after an exhausting day (which included a trip to the E.R. for my son who broke his arm!) I collapsed in front of the tube last night and saw this great ad. The link will take you to a page where you can choose to play one of two commercials put out by the California GOP. The one you want to see is the one called "Quote."

It does precisely what I was talking about below, i.e., hammer Democrat Phil Angelides as a tax and spend liberal. The commerical depicts Angelides walking backwards and quotes his opponent from the primary, Steve Westly, delineating all of the things Angelides would tax if given the chance. The commerical ends by asking: "What if Steve Westly was right?" It’s very good and very effective. I hope it gets alot of play in the coming months. I still can’t help but wish, however, that more of this type of thing was coming directly from Arnold rather than indirectly from the GOP. Well . . . this is California.

Arnold Schwarzenegger used to be so visible. Then came the special election he called last fall. He seemed to become invisible during the campaign for that election. As a result of his invisibility, he lost. Big. Then he agonized over Tookie Williams. The fact that he ultimately made the right call did not take away from the erosion of confidence in him, brought about by his demonstrated indecisiveness.

Me too.
