Matt Drudge is reporting an Arnie landslide: 51% voting for Arnie, 30% Bustamente, 13% McClintock. On Drudge’s numbers the recall is locked in, too: 59%. Gray Davis -- terminated!

There's trouble in Wesley Clark's world, too:

Wesley Clark's campaign manager quit Tuesday in a dispute over the direction of the Democratic presidential bid, exposing a rift between the former general's Washington-based advisers and his 3-week-old Arkansas campaign team.

Just so long as Mary doesn't quit. He's doomed without Mary.

Ha, record numbers.Michael, as Tim linked, claimed he would help to ensure record numbers would turn up to vote Davis back in.Good call Mikey.

Also a gas, Davis's wife recollecting, in a last minute attempt to smear Arnies' name one more time: she too was harrassed, as flight stewardess-euphemism for cafe waitress/table top dancer, so emphasises with all the molls the Dems managed to convince to say something nasty about Arnie.

There's a downside. The democrat whining will go on longer than Al Gore post-2000.

It is funny, however. California now governed by a Nazi-sympathising serial sexual harrasser.

Heh, heh, heh.

Ahem, where can one buy a puppy juicer.Or are they kept under the counter and so one has to surreptitiously ask for one.I wouldn't mind trying juice of puppy; is it blended with vodka or Gin?

Of course Arnie would win. He was teleported back in time to ensure Gray Davis wouldn't bring about the destruction of humanity, remember?

All jokes aside, I hope Arnold turns things around for California. Not being a Californian, I'm relying on perfect hindsight. If a few months/years from now it turns out to work, I'll be all for it.

Once again they have underestimated Ahhnold. Bodybuilder, Millioinaire businessman, Action and comedy movie star, and now governor - is there nothing he cant do? He strikes me as being like that t-1000 terminator in the second movie. He can change forms at will :)

I hate to speak ill of the ousted, but Mr. Davis has been a major buttsore on the side of California's giant ass for a long time. I am especially a fan of his "brilliant" plan to dregulate the power utilities--and his subsequent hatchet job at trying to blame everyone else for the resulting problems.

While there's no guarantee Arnie will be any better, he'd have to work at it real hard to be as bad.

As a voting Californian I can only think of one thing to say . . . YIPEEEE!!!

Joe Davis is history, and Mr. Spacely of Spacely Space Sproketts goes back to being Lt. Governor where he can't do any harm (unless harm comes to Arnie). Davis hasn't conceded, yet, but I'm hoping to see it on TV soon. WHAT A GREAT NIGHT!! Now if we could just get rid of Zelda (Sheila Kuhl) and the other socialists controlling the legislature.

The dems have already been making noise about challenging the results of the election, trying to recall Arnie, etc. In a way I hope they do because that strategy will be, if not the final nail in the coffin for the dems in California, then very close to it.

I saw a news snippet before work this morning where Gray's wife was trying to prop her man up by sledging Arnie with the words "The worst thing my husband has been accused of is being stupid.....". Ah, honey, stop trying to help, please, please, please!

Will Dolph Lundgren, Grace Jones and Sylvester Stallone be in Arnie's cabinet?

Posted by: Freddyboy at October 8, 2003 at 03:38 PM

Forget that, lets get Mary Carey in. So at least when you complain of being fucked by the govt you may have a way to fuck back.

The smart thing for the Democrats to do now would be to shut up, take their medicine, and re-organize for the next general election.

So what they'll probably do is try to drag the thing out through lawsuits and launch a retaliatory recall election. Result: huge backlash from an electorate that just gave Gray Davis his walking papers and isn't in the mood for further bullshit.
