Please all, please none

· long story short

Matt Welch deftly illustrates how Gray Davis, a trimmer, has micromanaged himself into standing for nothing and for nobody. OK, I guess “raising money” and “himself” might fit the bill, but the point is that those of us who fear another right-wing coup legal project have little to fight with here. We can be against the recall but that’s not where the action is. Bustamante is not exactly awe inspiring either. Watching a robot self-destruct is always fun. That’s why Survival Research Laboratories exist.
Everyone seems to agree that Gray is probably toast on his own petard. “When they came for Gray Davis, I said nothing.”
