"Meanwhile, Darrell Issa, the GOP congressman who financed the effort to recall Davis, said he was trying to get the attention of fellow Republicans when he warned that he would reverse course vote against the recall unless the party could unite behind one candidate.

"Issa also revealed that before the election he had an understanding with Republican State Sen. Tom McClintock, another of the recall candidates.

"'Well, I haven't said this publicly before, but I should say it here. I talked to Tom McClintock before he got into this race. He told me a couple of things that I'm going to hold him to. One, he said he wouldn't get in if it wasn't a crowded field. Two, he said he wouldn't be a spoiler. And, three, he said he could do the math.'

"Issa warned that time was running out for the GOP to rally behind one candidate, suggesting that McClintock needed to step aside in order for Schwarzenegger to win.

"'It's not a crowded field anymore,' Issa said. 'It's only crowded by one too many. Both of them can do the math. And both of them don't want to be spoilers. One of them has to make the right decision and has to make it in the next two days.'

"As the replacement candidates battled it out, Davis kept hitting his theme that the recall would be disastrous for the state. Former U.S. Sen. Gary Hart, a Democrat from Colorado, joined the chorus of those arguing against the recall.

"'I think it is the substitution of power for the democratic ideal,' he told me. 'And that's not good for America or democracy or, for that matter, the state of California.'

"Meanwhile, the group Californians Against the Costly Recall released its own ad with a grim warning: 'Whoever takes over, the bad feelings and political chaos may get even worse.'"

Meanwhile, this makes me glad and sorry I don't have a TV.

Meanwhile, we have new slang for sucker: Issa.
Usage: "I got an Issa to buy that bridge." "There's an Issa born every minute."
