Tom Bordonaro, the assessor of San Luis Obispo County, said it well.
Never mind Ah-nold, he will easily trounce Phil Angelides next month, who even many Democrats admit is an utter weasel.
The question is: What comes AFTER Ah-nold? He is term limited out in 2010.
How about a Lieutenant Governor Tom McClintock? YES! He is the Last Honest Politician, or, to quote an optimistic protagonist of Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, "The first of their return."
This guy ran in the Governor's recall race on a shoestring budget and in spite of the official Ah-nold the Republican bandwagon, still did respectably well. I wish Ah-nold had campaigned for McClintock in the recall and chose to become a "Senatator" vs. Dianne Feinstein in 2004 instead of a "Governator", but oh well, Ah-nold went for the sure thing.
If McClintock can win Lieutenant Governor this fall, there is hope for Cali. Otherwise, stick a fork in this state and turn it over.
And In 2010, that bolshevik Barbara Boxer is up for relection. Could the "Governator" go on to become a "Senatator" this time?
We can only hope.
