Mad Politicians’ Disease

Marc Cooper details how the Democratic candidates for California governor are so lame and so indistinguishable they’re arguing between themselves about cows, yes cows, rather than about anything substantive. That kind of bare knuckles, lets-engage-the-public campaigning will be sure to knock Schwarzenegger out of office, you betcha.

Meanwhile, Arnold is moving back up in the polls. This is hardly surprising given the nonentity personas of the Democratic candidates who, like D.C. Democrats, have no issues they feel passionate about. Cowed by the task of sending Arnold out to pasture when they should instead be coming on like a stud bull, they’ll probably just trip over their own hooves and fall in a cow patty instead.
