Hell, no! I want to forget him as fast as I can.
Kevin Drum has a sidelight on the election I haven’t seen elsewhere: Apparently the total turnout was actually below the already-low turnout in the 2002 governor’s race. That suggests that the vote was a repudiation of Davis and Bustamante and not an embrace of Schwarzenegger, which makes me feel better about my fellow Californians.
Note to Democrats: If you want to win an election, it helps to have a candidate.
Note to Republicans: You won this game by forfeit when our team forgot to show up. That doesn’t mean that California has gone over to the Dark Side.
