Politiks, As Usual

It is true what they say: if you leave the lunatics alone long enough, they will eventually kid themselves into believing that they are in charge. Case in point: the soon-to-be-outgoing California Governor.

When good ole Gray Davis gave his much-anticipated speech / commentary about the current California recall movement at UCLA, it had been assumed that his speech would be a mea culpa of sorts, kind of a "hey, I know, I screwed up and drove the state directly into the ground, but PLEASE don't kick my incompetent ass out, OK?" speech. Instead, Davis chose to march down the road that The Left seems to be wearing a groove in lo these recent years: he pointed the finger at everyone but himself, invoking the old "vast right-wing conspiracy" theory (although infantile insult rhetoric still reigns supreme).

Yup, according to Davis, his woes are not his own doing, but rather, he is yet another victim of the "conspiracy". You see, this movement to send Davis to the unemployment line is nothing more that a continuation of the "organized movement" by Republicans to usurp democracy! How come no one tells me about these things? I like cool t-shirts.

Yep, it all began with the Clinton impeachment (forget that he broke the law and all that stuff). Then, in an unbelievable attempt to re-write history, he said it continued with the Republicans' attempt to throw out ballots in Florida! The Republicans!!! (Sorry, Gray...it was the Democrats that tried to toss out perfectly good ballots while counting every folded, spindled and mutilated ballot!) The Recall Movement is just another example. After all, there couldn't possibly be a valid reason to throw Davis out of office, right? California is only miserable, its' people overtaxed and underpaid, an energy crisis bought about by horrendous policies and (quite possibly) the dirtiest campaign tactics in the history of American politics.

But you're right Gray...it's not you. It's us.
