I heard an analogy on TV this morning that made me laugh. They were talking about the recall of California Gov Davis as being a method of overturning the outcome of the election.

The analogy(paraphrased): "This is like the Raiders recalling the loss to Tampa Bay in the Superbowl so they could try again"

Yeah-- sure-- like the Raiders would even come close to beating the Bucs if they had to play them again. The Bucs are a better team all-around. Elections-- well-- you could be the best politician in the world and still lose to Mickey Mouse as a write in candidate.

Actually, I did lose to Mickey Mouse.  I lost the Student Body Presidential elections to an *ssh*le who had no leadership experience and lied his ass off to win.  I lost by TWO lousy votes!

I meant the write in candidate, not a "Mickey Mouse"-like candidate. You know-- the silent protest against the election where people put in anything as a write in candidate. Perhaps "Beavis" would have been more relevant.

uhhhhh..... heh heh .... Shut up, Beavis.

Sorry to hear you lost by two votes-- was there a recount? You know how much we like recounts here in Florida.

It was all computerized...  However, we did have 19 undervotes.  They were from people who logged into the voting system, but didn't hit the final button to register their vote.  I called them "web chads".

Perhpas not a recall election but a regular general election would see him out on the street.  Make way for Arnie, Gov of Cali.  You know its bad when Jay Leno on an almost nightly basis calls him Grey "The sky is falling" Davis, like he did during power problem time.  I can't imagine its gotten any better.
