Back from Vacation

I was reading the Monkey Media Report for fun and amusement this afternoon when I ran across what must be the new list of excuses the Democrats have come up with for Gray Davis's early retirement and Arnold's overwhelming victory.

Monkey Media sets me laughing with this: "Because Davis represents the Republican wing of the Democratic Party". So their excuse is that Davis was a Republican in disguise!!!

Then he accuses Arnold of being a political coward: "Which makes Arnold something of a political coward, of course - a guy who chose his moment carefully to minimize the amount of time he had to spend campaigning on the issues, and maximize his artifically inflated name recognition. Real macho stuff. It worked, though, didn't it?" If Arnold is a political coward what does that make the Democratic choice, Bustamante? Give me a break.

Of course Monkey Media includes some outright lies like this: "Hell, Republicans didn't even have to wait that long, thanks to California's unusually easy recall law, which is among the loosest of laws in the 18 states that allow recalls." and gives an authorative looking reference to back up this stupid statement. If he had taken the time to read down the page in the reference he would have seen this: "Recall attempts at the state level have been singularly unsuccessful. The only successful recall of a governor to date took place in North Dakota in 1921, when voters removed from office not only Governor Lynn J. Frazier, but also the attorney general and the commissioner of agriculture. California voters have initiated 32 gubernatorial recall attempts since 1911, but the 2003 recall of Governor Gray Davis in 2003 is the first to ever reach the ballot. " If it were easy maybe more than 1 out of 32 would have been successful.

I won't have to read Dave Barry this week for a good laugh or two.
