Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Gray Davis, Hopeless Nerd

The Davis recall election has just been set for October 7. Lt. Governor Cruz Bustamante, who set the election date by law, is playing games about whether there will be a second vote to replace Davis. If there is no second vote, then he would become governor by default. This is not likely to happen; the law seems fairly clear that a second, replacement vote must be held at the same time. But you never know with lawyers.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Times reports today on Davis’s daily diet. He has a tofu shake with fresh berries for breakfast, and lunch consists of a turkey sandwich (but without cheese!) and steamed broccoli.

That ought to be reason enough to recall the guy. Sounds too much like the other governor for whom he once worked, Jerry Brown.

The Dems skirted the letter and spirit of the law to run a dead man for Senator in Missouri and a nearly dead man for Senator in New Jersey, so it would hardly surprise if they "skirted" the electoral laws of California, no matter how clear they might seem.

Why Mr. Hayward... How very Arnold Schwarzenegger of you!!!

What the hell is wrong with food like that? I hadn’t realized that I couldn’t be a right winger without scoffing at tofu and vegetables.

Calm down Dog Bone! I eat steamed broccoli too (the more so since I passed 40 and my doctors got on me for cholesterol and blood pressure). It just sounds so ascetic coming from Davis, so. . . Jerry Brown-like.
