"It's morning in America, Hackenbush, and you work the nightshift."

Friday, October 10, 2003

"Steven Maviglio, the governor's press secretary, said that Mr. Davis would continue to exercise all his powers until he left office and suggested that Mr. Schwarzenegger still had some things to learn about how Sacramento operates. About 230 bills were awaiting the governor's action, Mr. Maviglio said, and Mr. Davis was continuing to name judges and other appointed officials.

"'Until the secretary of state hands the new governor his election certificate," Mr. Maviglio said, "Governor Davis will continue doing the job the Constitution requires him to do.'

"He added that the deadline for signature or veto of all pending legislation was Oct. 12 and that if Mr. Davis did not act on the bills, they would automatically become law.

"'I don't know if Arnold understands that,' Mr. Maviglio said."
Arnold shows his deep respect for the constitution by demanding to step into office before he officially wins the race, the invaluable Sisyphus Shrugged, October 9, 2003

I wonder how long der schwarzen will actually last in this job. Six months? Hm.

Has bush sent us our $87 billion yet?

"One thing I acknowledge about the right is that they're much better haters than liberals are. Your basic liberal is pretty much a strikeout on the hatred front. Maybe further out on the left you can hit some good righteous anger, but liberals, and I am one, are generally real wusses."
No Mystery Here, Folks, by Molly Ivins, September 25, 2003

"They're pushing a story line on Dean that the Washington press corps has bought into big-time -- that Dean is 'thin-skinned' and 'riles easily.' There was much chatter on the chat shows about what was alleged to be a Dean show of temper over Gephardt's comparing him to Newt Gingrich. Aside from the fact that anybody would be insulted by being compared to Gingrich, I must say the alleged flash of temper didn't show much on TV."
And in this corner of the decagon …, by Molly Ivins, October 2, 2003

"But sometimes -- such as when the president admits that Saddam had nothing to do with 9-11 or our official WMD searchers admit they have nothing -- it seems useful to go back and review the bidding."
Follow the bouncing White House ball, by Molly Ivins, October 5, 2003

"Much as I hate to interrupt what is apparently a deeply felt triumphalism on the American right, now that it's over, does anyone see any reason for our having invaded Iraq?"
Not much of a party occasion, by Molly Ivins, October 9, 2003

Just catching up on my reading.

"First, the fact that President Bush will be raising money in the state--something he is unlikely to do in, say, Al Kut, anytime soon--suggests that California is still a rich state that might be expected to pay its own way. While the Golden State is simpatico with Iraq in the sense that both have suffered power outages and both are sometimes said to be the size of California (California, as it happens, is exactly the size of California), that's about as far as it goes. With the federal budget also in deficit and California not actually having been invaded, it might get less aid than it would receive in an ideal world."

*snip*

"But even if Schwarzenegger does convince the president to send the Africa HIV/AIDS money to Sacramento instead, that would likely leave a few gaps in the state's budget. At his press conference, Schwarzenegger repeated campaign promises not to raise taxes, to repeal the recent tripling of vehicle registration fees and to rescind a law Gov. Davis signed last month that allows undocumented workers to obtain driver's licenses.

"This March, Davis said he believes that California is still owed $9 billion by energy companies that gouged the state in its recent energy crisis. Companies from whom the state is seeking refunds include Reliant Resources, BP, Duke Energy, Mirant, Dynegy, Calpine and, of course, Enron. The next governor hasn't emphasized the state's claim against the energy firms. That was Davis' baby.

"But Schwarzenegger will need some new ideas soon as some are now projecting the state deficit not at $8 billion but $20 billion. This is much more than the people of South Dakota and Mississippi would likely be willing to contribute."
Arnold Wants A Baghdad Deal For Calif., by Dan Ackman, Forbes.com, October 9, 2003

Excuse me, but did the Angry Idiots of California (AIC) just boot a guy who, like him or not, did know what he was doing, to put in a guy who wants to cut taxes or at least not raise them to solve our problems and then get money from DC?

We in CA get about 88 cents back on every tax dollar we send to DC. No Dak gets about $2.10 back. See this post. Maybe it is time for the Red States to support our tanned and lovely asses.

What do y'all AIC think the chances of that are?

Note: As bad as this farce has been, is and is going to be for California, it will probably be a boon for blogging.

Exit poll shows women, whites recalled Davis, CNN, October 8, 2003

Well, it sure wasn't me.

I'm taking the day off from blogging. If anyone has a serious plan to recall that man, please put it in the comments because I'm all ears.

God save California.

Edit: Recall Arnold Schwarzenegger "Because I just don't like him."

Gloves off, brass knuckles on.

Edit: 51% No on the Recall Well, at least LA County's got some sense. For as much good as it does us.

Simply too horrible to contemplate.

Pray for us.

Oh my God, PLEASE VOTE NO ON THE RECALL!

Click here for more Schwarzenegger horrors.

"Why is it so hard for commentators to come right out and say: here is a man who seems to have a long history of contempt for women, who uses his celebrity to get away with sexual humiliation — why does he belong in public life? Would that sound too square, too P.C., too, um, feminist? From the newsstand crammed with leering lad magazines like Maxim to all-male, all-the-time talk radio to the self-congratulatory misogyny of 'The Man Show,' aggressive male chauvinism is back in style, and Mr. Schwarzenegger is its standard-bearer."
Mr. Schwarzenegger Gets a Pass, By Katha Pollitt, NY Times, October 5, 2003 (as seen on WTF is it Now?)

"The vote means nothing to women. We should be armed."
Edna O’Brien

Not that I agree or anything.

Just vote NO on the recall and let's forget all about this mess.
