Carl Limbacher amuses with Hillary to Gray Davis: You're on Your Own:
It looks as if politically doomed Democrat Gov. Gray Davis won't be getting any more help from U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton, who has apparently written off his chances to survive October's recall vote.Real warm of the witch.
Asked yesterday whether she intended to stump for Davis in California before crucial vote, Sen. Clinton told "The Today Show" that she had already been there, done that.
"I was there weeks ago," she explained. "I'll leave it up to the people of California."
But wait, Christopher Ruddy points to an even more sinister turn of events in Why Gray Davis Is Toast:
Gray Davis is toast, but apparently no one has told him just yet.Don't worry though, the Curmudgeon has a clever plan. As for me, I think a politician with Aztec warrior fantasies fits right in with the California ambiance.
He thinks his enemies are the “right wing” and hard-core Republicans, but it is his Democrat brethren who will deliver to him the coup de grace on recall day – to help elect an even more radical Democrat, Cruz Bustamante.
This election may serve as a paradigm for the “divide and conquer” strategy. There is no question that the Democrats can muster about 35 percent of the vote – between unions, minorities, state employees and the like. A Republican in this splintered field, even Arnold Schwarzenegger, will be hard pressed to beat that base number.
So this is why the Democrats are laughing. They will replace a liberal Democrat with one even more liberal.
