Arianna Huffington has quit the California governership race, presumably due to pressing business back home in Hooterville. This will throw Mark Steyn’s Huffington vote contest into chaos.

Not only will this throw Steyn's contest into chaos, it virtually guarantees that the "winner" will get one of Huffington's books, since she isn't likely to get 1% of the vote at this point. The horror!

btw: Am I the only person on the face of the earth who doesn't undertand why everyone is jumping all over Cruz Bustamante (the Democratic candidate in the recall) for his "Yes, Arianna" comment? Nobody who actually watched Arianna's shrill, hypocritical, self-rightous, condescending arrogant performance could possibly have objected to Cruz's comment -- personally, I laughed by head off.

Geh, I'm not betting many of those lost votes are going to McClintock. And I can't understand why EVERY Republican says "I like McClintock best, but I'm voting for Arnold, because he'll win"...yeah, if EVERY Republican says that, I guess it's true...*smacks head in disgust*

California has lax voting laws, if I were unscrupulous and not lazy, I'd hop the border and vote McClintock, myself, really...

The voters in California need to send a strong message in this election. They should vote "Yes" for the recall and then write in "Grey Davis". Watching the pundits try to figure it out would be the comedy bit of the decade. Hey, and it's not like Californians have done something like this before. The did vote for term limits, while at the same time voting for the incumbants.

The spaz/retard vote is now up for grabs.

"The spaz/retard vote is now up for grabs."

Naw... her name will still appear on the ballot, which means the spaz/retards out there will probably still vote for her.

I would agree with Charles on principled ground that California should always be the cutting edge of strange American politics, but Californians are moving by the DROVE into my state...for one, they're not required to know how to drive to get a driving license, and it shows. We don't need that. And, even though Vegas jumped the 1 million mark in population a long while ago, it still feels like a tiny town and the last thing I want is a bustling metropolis, which the Californians are prone to make. And, what if they bring their wacky uber-liberalism with them to a historically Republican state? Geh, the comedy is ending, methinks.
