I have to admit the whole California Governor’s race thing really didn’t seem real to me until I stumbled across the California Government’s web page and there he is, the Governor!
Maybe it’s just me, but it’s *really weird * looking at it. It’s real! It’s fake! It’s two dissonant concepts in one! It’s like I’m looking at a movie poster that’s real. I don’t really know how to describe the impression. It’s just odd, really odd. It’s a double, double take.
Indeed, with Herr Gropenfuehrer in office one wonders just who will be the next Man in the High Office. Montana has in Judy Martz a moron who needs to be replaced, and I think we should shop around for famous actors. Hell, enough of them vacation here anyway, we might as well rope them into the political system.
Here’s a few options I have in mind:
[li]Jack Nicholson: Spooky psychopath taking a baseball bat to partisan politics and smashing the windshield of the establishment![/li][li]Ted Nugent: Hell, this is what the rest of the world thinks we’re like anyway. He’ll get all of Montana’s gun laws repealed and we’ll hunt wild game on the streets of the major cities.[/li][li]Joey Ramone: Missouri can elect a dead guy, so can we. We can set Ashcroft up as a candidate so he can, once again, be judged less competent than a corpse.[/li][li]Sylvester Stallone: If we can’t understand him, does that mean we get to ignore him?[/li][li]Ronald Reagan: Only if he makes the state of the state addresses himself, unaided. “My fellow Americans, we should all kill the damned Commies! Bomb! Bomb! Mr. Gorbachev, tear the motherfuckers down!”[/li][/ul]
The thing is, I believe a lot of folks were voting for the Not Davis candidate, that for whatever their reason, people just wanted someone new. Whoever got the job was going to be at a disadvantage anyway; it’s not as if they’re taking over from a successful administration, right? It’s an uphill climb. But if you guys are honestly better off when this term is up, more power to him.
I’ll take what I can get, I hope we get solutions and competence and good use of tax money.
Right now, still on the existing budget, it is eight weeks and counting since the Special Registration Unit of the Dept. of Motor Vehicles in the state capital received the paperwork to correct the reg. to reflect the right license plate, on the car I am trying to sell
They take the paperwork in order received. I’druther just pay the fees and get the service.
